Why Pet Sitting?
In-home pet care is an alternative to boarding, or imposing
on the neighbors, family or friends. Your pets can remain in
the comfort of their own home and maintain their own routine.
You no longer have to worry about transporting your pets to
and from the kennel, and you don’t have to worry about them
picking up fleas while they’re there!
Quality in-home pet care goes far beyond filling a bowl up
with food. Pet sitters engage your pet with exercise &
playtime, clean up “messes,” and may administer medications.
Some sitters offer overnight stays in your home, daily dog
walking for those people who work long hours and pet taxi if
your pet needs to go to the vet or groomer. The most common
animals entrusted to pet sitters are dogs, cats and fish, but
some sitters are also adept in caring for birds, rodents,
reptiles, horses or livestock.
In addition to giving your pets loving care, professional
pet sitters will also bring in your mail and newspaper. Some
offer services such as filling outdoor bird feeders,
alternating lights, and watering plants, usually at no
additional charge. Their goal is to provide genuine,
dependable services from someone you can trust. After all, you
are leaving behind two things that are very important to you –
your pet and your home!
