Dog Sitter Throw Pillow
At least once in their life, every great dog sitter has used the phrase, “I can’t, I have to dog sit,” and not minded the excuse to get out of something much less entertaining than cuddling a sweet puppy. Now that phrase can be used to acknowledge the work and time your sitter puts into caring for your dog when you are away. This throw pillow is available in 16” x 16” or 18” x 18” sizes and is printed double-sided for maximum impact.

Keeping track of the house keys for pet sitting is a bit more enjoyable when every time you unlock the door, you are reminded you are appreciated. That’s exactly what this engraved stainless steel keychain will do for your dog sitter. The keychain comes with a charm and a tag that is engraved with a dog sitter thank you message in an easy-to-read script. It is also lead and nickel free and will not tarnish, which means it can be used for many pet sitting adventures to come.

Paw Print Keepsake Ornament
A perfect personal gift from your pup to their sitter around the holidays is a paw print keepsake ornament.

Clear directions and letter stamps are included for you to make your ornament and personalize it with your dog’s name and the year. The clay is non-toxic and air-dries, so there is no need to bake or mix special ingredients, and your dog sitter gets a one-of-a-kind thank you!
Dog Sitter Appreciation Notebook
It is pretty common for owners and pet sitters to share notes or information about the dogs we love. Make the task a little more rewarding by using or gifting this notebook that has cover art that demonstrates appreciation for the many tasks a dog sitter takes on in our absence. If you keep a log of your dog’s daily activities, your sitter will smile every time they open the notebook. This also can be given as a direct gift for your dog sitter to determine how to fill each neatly lined page.
Dog Speak Thank You Card
When the sitting is all said and done, it’s our own words that can often have the biggest impact. Taking time to write out a thank-you note to your dog sitter with the things you love about them will touch their heart for years to come. You can add some joyful dog touches to your written word with these thank you cards that show a paw spelling thank you out of dog bones and a thank you sentiment being written by the dog themselves. Your repeat business, along with a great card, is a small gesture that will go a long way in your dog sitter’s heart and mind.
