Dog Walker Slips and Falls in the Woods, Loses Dog and Blacks Out
She was admittedly not prepared for a walk in the woods that day. She brought no treats, no water, none of her normal supplies. It took a search and rescue team to locate her after 3 days of being missing. She fell down on a log, saying that she had not wore the right footwear, and knocked herself out, then lost a dog named Bubba. Around the time she could not find her phone or the dog Bubba, she decided to sit it out in the forest come nightfall on Eagle Mountain, hoping her husband would set out and search for her.
On the 2nd day she was able to locate Bubba but was disoriented, and attempted to find her way back. Her attempts to get back to her car were met with a continued state of being lost and feeling deep despair. The dogs were cold and looking to her for leadership, and she had no answers.
Eventually she spotted a SAR helicopter circling above but was not able to get their attention. In her video where she describes the experience, she even calls the SAR helicopter crew “dumbass” because they could not see her. All this from a person putting the lives of others and the dogs she was caring for at risk, spending the taxpayer’s dollar, and then expecting people to feel sorry for her.

New Jersey Dog Owner Sues Pet Sitter After Dog Loses Eye in Vicious Attack from Other Dog Under Her Care
In a standard and easily preventable tragedy, one dog attacked another when the Maltese/Shih Tzu mix attempted to eat some of the attacking dog’s food. The dog was seriously injured after losing an eye. The dog owner was regretful, saying she wish she had never taken that vacation, but I don’t think that’s fair.

This is also why it’s so important for a dog sitter to have insurance and also to have some type of training on their resume when opening a dog sitting or dog walking business. This means either you spend an entire weekend researching YouTube videos and Google searching how to be a dog sitter, or you can simply follow the already prepared guide at this site http://theperfectdogreview.com/ which gives you all the necessary basic information on pet sitting, but also actually helps dog sitters and dog walkers build a sustainable and growing business based on premium customer service and customer loyalty, not taking on too many dogs of different sizes irresponsibly and letting them maul each other until one dog gets seriously hurt.
