The Benefits of Using a Professional Pet Sitter
There are numerous benefits of using a professional pet care-giver; once you have experienced them, you will become an avid user. Each day when you are away, the professional will visit your home to feed, care for and play with your pet. The professional will have a responsibility for both your pet and your home, so you should give the selection of your pet sitter serious consideration. When you hire a professional pet sitter, make sure you take the time for an interview and have all your questions ready. The services offered and fees charged can vary widely. You should find out whether the pet sitter is bonded, has commercial liability insurance coverage, and is willing to provide references. Ask for documented proof of these and take the time to check references. Also, it will be important to see how the professional interacts with your pet. And note what information the care-giver requires from you before taking on an assignment.
Advantages for the Pet
The pet remains in his or her safe, secure environment, where all the sights, smells, and sounds are familiar. The pet follows his or her customary diet and exercise routine and medical treatments. The pet is not exposed to illnesses or parasites from other animals. The pet is not traumatized by travel in a car or unfamiliar environment. The pet receives love and personal attention while the owner is away.
Benefits for the Pet Owner
The pet owner is not inconvenienced or upset by having to transport the pet. The pet owner does not have to impose on a friend, family member or neighbor (who sometimes forgets). The pet owner's home is made more secure by crime deterrent measures provided by most professional pet care-givers. The owner is secure in the knowledge that while he or she is away the pet is in capable and caring hands. The pet owner can utilize other special services provided by most professional pet-sitters.
