The Pet Sitter of Boise uses Power Pet Sitter scheduling software. We love it! I’m writing this blog to explain how Power Pet Sitter works and how we use it in our business.

When you become a new client, you click on the “New Client Registration” paw print on our home page. By doing so, you are providing us with contact information and pet and home care instructions. This information is critically important to ensure your home and pets are well cared for by us. When things change in the future, you may easily go into the software and update the information.

Next, you may schedule appointments. When you schedule, we get an email notification and we approve the appointment. Three things happen when we approve the appointment.

  1. We manually add your appointment to your sitter’s google calendar and notify the sitter.
  2. The appointment automatically gets added to the Power Pet Sitter list of appointments. If we make a scheduling error, it is on the list and we are able to correct things and get your appointment added to the schedule.
  3. Power Pet Sitter sends you a confirmation/invoice email notifying you that we received your appointment and you are on the schedule. The invoice total allows you to verify the total, so you may leave a check for your sitter. If you do not get an email, please contact the office.

After we complete your visit, we check off the appointment as completed. If something gets missed (this is extremely rare), we can complete the appointment at that time.

Please always used Power Pet Sitter to update instructions and make appointments. This way, nothing slips through the cracks. You may still email or call in appointments, but it adds a step as we will then add your appointment ourselves. The more steps, the more chance of errors occurring.

Please contact the office if you have any questions or need assistance.

Thank you!
