Why hello! You're here! That means you must be interested in hiring a pet sitter, right? Maybe you're a bit nervous at
the thought of a stranger coming into your home and caring for your beloved pets. Or maybe you're a seasoned veteran and know
how great pet sitters can be. Either way I have compiled a list to either inform or remind you what an asset a pet sitter
can be to you and your pets:
Your pet remains in his or her safe, secure, environment where everything is
familiar. This is very important to most animals. Staying at a boarding facility can be quite traumatic.
Your pet follows his or her customary schedule. I will try and accomodate your pet's feeding, walk, and potty schedule.
Your pet is not exposed to other animals or illnesses. Let's face it, even if a boarding facility looks clean, there
is no way it can guarantee against your pet contracting an illness or infection.
Your pet is saved from the trauma of being taken away from home. Cats are especially freaked out when taken out of their
home environment. All pets are most happy when allowed to stay home. You may say, "yes but with only a couple visits per day
my pet will be lonely, and a boarding facility is a better option." The truth is, at a boarding facility your pet will be
kept in a small space for at least 23 hours per day. Most places will only let your dog out for potty twice, charging extra
for "extra outs." There is not a lot of one-on-one attention.
Your pet will receive love and attention while you are away. A good pet sitter ( such as... oh... ME :)) will spend quality
time with you pets giving them love and attention, playing with them, and taking them for walks.
Your house and plants are taken care of. Your mail won't overflow and your newspapers and fliers won't pile up because
I will be there to bring them inside. I can also alternate lights, put out the garbage, and make the home looked lived-in
to deter potential criminals.
No more bothering and imposing on a friend or neighbor to take care of your pets. Not to mention, there's a good chance
they don't have proper pet care experience. Since they're not getting paid they may forget to show up and not care how good
of a job they do. They could also start to resent you if you repeatedly request their help.
You have the peace of mind knowing your house and pets are secure and
cared for. What is better than hiring a person who takes care of pets and houses for a living? Chances are they know
what they're doing or they wouldn't be in business! I have numerous references and have been in business almost 5 years. If
I wasn't successful I would have quit a long time ago. Check out my service area and if you live in my area, give me a call
and we can discuss your pet care needs.
