It’s happened again. You have the opportunity to enjoy a weekend getaway but you dread picking up the phone and making the call. That call. Sure, your family and friends always say they don’t mind watching your pets when you’re gone but you know it can be an inconvenience. Should you ask for the help or should you just forget going away?
Have you used a pet sitter yet? If not, you no longer have to worry about burdening your family and friends. You can, in fact, say yes anytime you want because you know your professional pet sitter will take care of your pets just like you do.
Here are some of the many benefits of hiring a pet sitter:
You are working with a professional.
You’re not imposing on your professional pet sitter. You don’t have to worry that she just won’t show up. You don’t have to toss and turn at night, wondering if your pets are fed, happy, and safe. A professional pet sitter makes sure your pets receive the care you expect – following your directions and keeping you up to date with how they are doing each day.
You are the boss.
That’s right. Your professional pet sitter will discuss how you want your pets to be treated, what to feed them, and so on. A professional pet sitter will generally schedule an initial meet and greet. During that time, you and your pet(s) will have an opportunity to meet the pet sitter and you will provide the pet sitter with specific instructions on how to care for your pets.
Your pets are the top priority.
Your professional pet sitter loves pets just as much as you do. She will spoil them with the same love and affection to which they are accustomed. She understands that sometimes your pets – and you – need reassurance that everything is going to be okay. That’s why after each day’s visits you will receive a text or an email telling you how your pets are doing. And, in case of an emergency, you will be the first person she contacts.
Your pets will stay where they belong: At home
Most pets prefer staying at home and that’s where they belong. Your pet will be able to sleep in his own bed, play with his own toys, and enjoy the comfort of being home. At the same time, he will receive the mental and physical stimulation, courtesy of your pet sitter, that is necessary to keep him happy and healthy.
