The Babysitter Secretly Brought a Dog to Look After Their 6-Month-Old Son and They Are Furious

A father recently hired a babysitter to look after his 6-month-old baby but found out that she had brought a big dog over to the house. He refused to pay her in full, but was he wrong? Here’s what he had to say.

A couple in their early 30s were planning a date night, so they hired a babysitter that they had used before. The babysitter in question was a 20-year-old college student. She lived in the same neighborhood and was recommended to them by some friends who had previously used her as a babysitter.

As the babysitter came to the house, “we told her our son’s schedule, then headed out,” the dad said. The plan was to go out for dinner and then meet with friends for drinks.

“We have two cameras in our house that we can access remotely to check in on our son,” the dad said. One camera was positioned over his bed, and the other was positioned over his play area in the living room. They told the babysitter about both cameras, so it wasn’t like they were spying on her.

Later on in the evening, the dad’s wife got a ‘motion detection’ notification from the play area, so she looked at her phone to check in. “She sees a dog sniffing our son. We are both like WTF? We don’t own any dogs and have no plans to ever own any dogs,” the dad said.

They Went Straight Home

They were quite alarmed, so they tried calling the babysitter, but there was no answer. They then did the only thing they could do under the circumstances: rush home.

“We go inside, and the babysitter is holding our son, and there is a golden retriever just hanging out. Everyone is calm and fine,” the dad said, although the babysitter seemed shocked that the parents came home so early.

The father naturally asked the babysitter why there was a dog in the house, and she replied that it was her golden retriever, and she decided to bring it along. The dad said, “the babysitter assured us the dog is baby-friendly and is sweet and safe. [But] I don’t want my son around dogs at such a young age even if they are sweet and safe”.

The Dad Was Angry

The dad got increasingly agitated about the situation, especially as “this was not something she was transparent about, and if we knew the dog was going to be there, I would have never okayed it,” he said. So, in the end, the dad told the babysitter to take the dog and leave.

He also informed her they wouldn’t be using her in the future. They paid her half the rate they agreed on, “mostly since we used her less than half the time we were going to be out,” he said. The babysitter, however, asked for the full amount. “I told her no, you put my kid in danger, and you should leave,” the father explained.

The babysitter obviously didn’t seem to think she had done anything wrong, but the dad thought it was inappropriate for her to bring a dog without asking.

One user wrote, “NTA, if she thought it was no big deal, then why didn’t you see the dog arrive when she did before you left?”

Another said, “The fact that you didn’t see the dog when she arrived tells me she knew this was wrong and kept him out of sight. Intentional or not, you don’t take pets along without clearing it with the parents.”
