Many people love coming home to a pet. Animals bring us joy, love, comfort, and can really make a home feel like a home. Pets are a great responsibility. They require attention, training, feeding, walking, nurturing, and full-time care. When you have a Nanny working in your home, you will need to consider how this will affect her and who will be responsible for the pet in your absence.

Consider these tips:
• Make sure the Nanny does not have any allergies to animals.
• Set expectations of what part of the Nanny’s job will be to take care of the pets.
• Set expectations for the responsibility of the children to take care of the pets.
• Set up proper pet care if the Nanny’s other responsibilities do not include the pets.
