ADVANTAGES of using a professional pet sitter
Pet companions have needs, feelings, thoughts and personality traits that need to be considered when pet parents need to be away from home.
Most pets find a strange environment, such as; kennels and catteries to be an upsetting experience, therefore using a pet sitter in your own home, allows you to leave your pet in their own secure, familiar space.
Your pet is able to follow their normal eating, medicine and exercise routines. This familiarity contributes to the happiness and health of your pet.
Travel trauma for both you and your pet is eliminated.
Exposure to illness is greatly reduced to your pet.
In a kennel, your pet may see multiple employees, and may not see the same employee more than once, hiring a pet sitter allows your pets to become familiar and comfortable with one caregiver.
Your pet will receive loving, individual attention.
Using a pet sitter eliminates your need to worry about the welfare of your pets.
If you dote on your pets, hiring a professional pet sitter is an alternative that gives you the next best thing when you can't be there.
