Benefits of Pet Sitting


For your pet:

  • Staying at home in his/her safe, secure environment
  • Being surrounded by familiar sights, smells and sounds
  • Following his/her regular diet and exercise routine
  • Having play time with favorite toys
  • Receiving love and personal attention
  • Maintaining medical treatment, when required
  • Having someone responsible in case of an emergency
  • Eliminating the trauma of travel or an unfamiliar environment
  • Ensuring good health ( no exposure to other animals' illness or parasites )


For you:

  • Knowing that your pet is in caring, loving hands
  • Having the confidence that the pet sitter can deal with other issues - such as grooming, vet visits
  • Eliminating the trauma of having to transport and leave your pet
  • Not having to impose on family, friends or neighbors
  • Feeling your home is more secure ( with someone going in and out and checking it several times a day )
  • Discreet, personalized service


Why Pet Sitting?


Pets are happiest when they are home, surrounded by familiar sights, smells and sounds. For many years, pet owners had few options when they were away from home for an extended period. One choice was boarding your pet at a kennel or veterinarian. Another was relying on family, friends or neighbors for help. But these solutions were often not the best choice for your pet, your home or yourself.


Professional pet sitting offers an excellent alternative. Pet sitters come to your house to care for all your pets and your home.


Reliable, professional pet sitting offers pet owners relief from the anxiety that often results from leaving a pet behind or placing your pet in a strange environment. Owners do not need to transport unhappy pets away from their homes and then worry that they might be exposed to other animals' illnesses. Your pets stay safe and comfortable at home. They maintain their regular routines and follow their regular schedule. Your pet will be pampered by a caring and dependable professional using the feeding, play, games, walks, grooming and care instructions that you specify. Professional pet sitting allows owners to confidently leave their pets at home, knowing that they will receive the love and care they so rightly deserve.
