Happy Paws Pet Nanny offers quality, in-home daily pet walking and vacation pet sitting services. During our in-home consultations, we often hear the question, “Why should I hire a pet-sitter or dog walker?” There are many reasons:
Leaving your home and your beloved pets behind can result in stress for you. A professional pet sitter offers an extra layer of security you won’t find anywhere else. A professional pet sitter ensures your home looks lived in and both it and your pets are secure until you return home. Imagine, the furnace going out in the winter while you’re on vacation. A professional pet sitter notices immediately, contacts you so you are aware and can handle the situation for your pet’s safety and you get to return home to warmth, rather than walking into that situation after your long vacation.
After every visit, you receive a journal entry from your professional pet sitter, telling you how the visit went, and how your pet is doing, not to mention the daily exercise is as good for pets as it is for us! I can’t tell you how many times we have received notes from thankful clients about a journal entry that informed them of a furry friend not feeling well, but most often about a great day outside or a happy picture posted to the site that they saw during their work day.
If your pet could choose between staying at home or going to a kennel, which do you think they’d choose? Probably home, right? When you work with a professional pet sitter, your beloved pet is able to remain at home where they feel safe and happy and get the one-on-one attention they get when you are at home. This is truly where the most important part of the furry client shines through. The dedicated professionals that give your pet socialization, exercise, and just that loving attention that you would give if you were home.
Those are just a few reasons I can think of for hiring a dog walker/pet sitter. I know there are more, but the next time you need to be away for day or a week, consult with a professional pet sitter like Happy Paws Pet Nanny and see what your pet may be missing.
