Is pet sitting the best option for your pet?
If work or travel will keep you away from your pets, you’ve likely considered various pet-care options, from asking for help from a family member or friend to securing the services of a professional pet sitter.
More and more pet owners are using the services of professional pet sitters to take advantage of the benefits in-home pet care provides:
• Pets are happier and experience less stress at home. • Diet and exercise routines are uninterrupted. • Travel trauma for both owner and pet is eliminated. • Pet’s exposure to illness is minimized. • Untrained or unwilling friends/family/neighbors need not be called. • You’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your pet is being cared for by a professional.
Why should you only use a professional pet sitter?
Professional pet sitters are just what the description implies – professional. While having friends, family, or neighbors care for your pets may seem like a logical choice, professional pet sitters do this for a living and have the experience necessary to care for your animals. A professional pet sitter:

Knows how to spot and avoid potentially dangerous situations, and can react quickly and effectively when necessary.
Is trained and experienced in administering medications.
Knows how to tell if your pet needs veterinary attention.
Has backup in case of emergencies, car troubles or illness.
Can be relied on to fulfill all of your care requests on time, each and every time.
