Making a Pet Sitting Contract

  • What is a Pet Sitting Contract?

    Pet sitters and pet owners use Pet Sitting Contracts for the purpose of documenting the details of work to be performed. With signatures from both the pet owner and the pet sitter, this contract helps define each party's respective expectations and limit conflicts. Unlike the other websites you may come across, there is a lot more to Rocket Lawyer than just templates. In the event of missed payments or another problem, your Premium membership offers the optional benefit of Document Defense® support from an attorney in our network.

  • Should a pet sitter always write Pet Sitting Contracts?

    Even if you are doing the work as a favor, you should always create a Pet Sitting Contract. This list of benefits may help to inform your decision to use one:

    • Payment requirements are well-defined
    • Roles and responsibilities are understood by everyone
    • Neither party is surprised by how long the agreement lasts

    A few consequences of not having this document in place may include incomplete payments, unclear due dates, and incorrect assumptions, among other potential concerns.

  • What details should my contract for pet sitting cover?

    In order to complete your Pet Sitting Contract with Rocket Lawyer, you'll need to prepare the following information:

    • The pet owner's full name and address
    • How much it will cost and when payment is due
    • How long the agreement will last
    • What services will be delivered

    As expected, this Pet Sitting Agreement built on Rocket Lawyer also includes the standard legalese with regard to the independent work relationship between the parties, confidentiality, the method(s) of dispute resolution, and finally, indemnity for losses. As you build your agreement, you also will be able to decide the jurisdiction under which it will be governed. More personalized editing is possible, as necessary.

  • What might I typically need to pay to get a pet sitting contract template prepared by an attorney?

    The fees associated with finding and hiring the average law firm could add up to anywhere between hundreds of dollars to thousands, depending on the level of complexity. When you use Rocket Lawyer, every Pet Sitting Contract that you create can be created especially for you. Simply tap or click the "Make document" button to get started. Once you have produced your contract, you may also find it helpful to have a Rocket Lawyer On Call® attorney review it.

    If you've got any particular doubts or questions before getting started, you can always ask an attorney. You might also like to browse our entire collection of business legal documents.

  • What should I do once I create my Pet Sitting Agreement?

    Alongside your Pet Sitting Contract, there is a series of directions on what you should do next. You also may engage with the contract in any of these ways: editing, printing it out, downloading it as a Word or PDF file, and getting electronic signatures through RocketSign®. Most importantly, as a best practice, you should provide a final copy of your fully signed agreement to the pet owner.

  • Where do I have my Pet Sitting Contracts looked at by a lawyer?

    If you attempt it by yourself, locating a legal professional to give feedback on contracts may be relatively time-consuming. Certain attorneys won't even agree to review a document if they weren't the person who worked on it. If a lawyer does decide to offer advice, they would still demand a fee to do so. A more cost-effective way to double-check your document would be through the On Call attorney network. When you become a Premium member, you can get your contracts reviewed or ask any legal questions. Whether you end up creating more copies of your Pet Sitting Agreement or other documents for pet sitters, we are by your side.
