Why Pet Sitters Are the Best Option


People who plan vacations away from their homes or those who have to go on business trips find the safety and care of their pets a major concern. Though the first choice of most people is boarding kennels, there are some others who consider having a pet sitter take care of their pets while they are away.

When you hire the services of a professional pet sitter, you are ensuring that your pet gets individualized care. The pet sitter will see to it that your pet gets the greatest comfort, and that it is fed, washed, and remain happy by following his regular routine and activities. A pet sitter is a trained and experienced person who has a real love for animals. They will visit your house once or many times a day as per the requirement and provide undivided love and attention to your pets.

By getting a pet sitter to look after your pets, you are making sure that the animals can live in the safety and comfort of the environment they are familiar with. When your pets remain at home, they will not experience any stress. They get to sleep in their regular spots, play with the toys they love the most, eat and drink in their favorite bowls and mugs, or go potty in the regular place.

Most pets are frightened and stressed out by boarding kennels. They are confined to cages though boarding kennels do not call them cages. Your beloved pets will be alone in those cages, going out only for regular toilet breaks. Even these occasions can be harmful for your pets as they are taken to the toilet area in the company of other animals staying at the boarding kennel. They are more prone to aggression and hazardous attacks in such situations. This can only increase the stress and mental pain they experience.

Another benefit of staying at home is that your pets will not get the germs and diseases of other animals. When you send your pets to boarding kennels, you will have to make sure that they get some additional vaccinations which are otherwise not needed. Sometimes these vaccinations may produce allergic reaction which can last for the entire lifetime of the pet.

Another consideration is price. Kennels usually charge you based on the number and size of your pets. If you have more than one pet, the rate can go higher. The charges of a pet sitter are calculated on a per-visit basis and if there is more than one pet, the charge will be pro-rated. You can also determine the number of visits per day according to the requirements of your pet.

Make sure that you hire a pet sitter from a professional and reliable company. This will ensure not only the security of your pets; it will also add to the security of your house and properties. Large companies can offer testimonials and reports of background checks of the pet sitter you are hiring.

With a pet sitter to take care of your darlings, you can travel without any tension or worries.
