Using Voice to Help Your Pet Sitter

If you live with a pet, you know the drill. When you have someone watch over your beloved, you leave a list of the “what’s” and the “where’s.” But what if you could also easily create a skill so that your pet sitter could ask questions of a voice assistant in your absence. Now that’s easy to accomplish with Amazon’s “Pet Sitter Blueprint.”

After you create a name for your skill, you can fill in your pet’s daily habits & needs – including answers to common questions (egs. contact info for your vet, neighbors or pet store). Other things you might address include:

– Daily schedules
– Allergies & medications
– Where to find things
– How to do things
– Emergency contact information
