Benefits of pet sitting as opposed to dog home boarding or kennels and catteries
Wondering why at home pet sitting is a better option to consider as opposed to putting your pets in kennels or catteries or dog home boarding? Here are some reasons:
Taking your furry friend to somewhere new is likely going to stress your pets since they’re not used to the environment. Pets can get accustomed to being at home and that includes sights, sounds and smells such that leaving an environment they’ve always known can make them anxious. Choosing at-home pet sitting for your pets makes it easy for them to feel safe and secure even when you’re out of town.
No extra travel for you
If you decide to take your furry friends to a dog home boarder, kennel or cattery, it means you have to drop your pets off and pick them up again when you return. The extra travel can cause a lot of stress and loss of valuable time you could have spent doing other things. When you choose pet sitting, you don’t have to worry about taking them to the dog home boarder, kennel or cattery or picking them up again when you’re back in town.
No travel trauma for your pets
Some pets dislike travelling regardless of how comfortable you try to make the trip for them. Hiring a pet sitter to stay with your pets can be less stressful for them than travelling with them.
Pet sitting experience and insurance
Hiring a pet sitter means you’re requesting the services of a professional who has vast experience with pets and is fully insured. What this means is that you can rest knowing that your pets are in the care of someone who is a huge animal lover and would know what to do in the event of an emergency.
Additional services/Security for your home
Apart from caring for your pets, pet sitters can help keep the house clean, water the plants, bring in the mail and newspapers, and put out recycle bins, all giving your home that lived-in look.
When pets are in a group setting like a cattery or a kennels, your pets are at risk of coming home with an illness they contracted from other pets. That could result in pains for your furry friend and a visit to the vet which may cost a lot. On the other hand, your pets are less likely to fall ill when being cared for in their own home and even if they do, you can rest assured that they will receive personalised care from the pet sitter.
Pets in a kennel or cattery don’t always receive personalised care and this might negatively affect your pets but a pet sitter who stays with your pets can care for your pet exactly as per your instructions, leaving you with no doubt that your pets are in safe hands. You will receive daily feedback emails with photographs of how your pets are doing for your peace of mind so you can relax and enjoy your holiday, worry free.
