Next time you plan a trip or must travel and need to leave your pets at home, consider the services of a professional pet sitter. A professional pet sitter comes to your home to care for your pet allowing your pet to remain in familiar surroundings. This helps to reduce any stress your pet may feel as a result of your absence. The pet sitter will feed and exercise your pet as well as administer any medications.
Professional pet sitters do much more than care for your pets in your absence. The sitter will bring in your mail and newspaper, water plants, open and close blinds, and turn lights on and off. This gives the impression that someone is home thereby increasing the security of your home in your absence. The sitter may be able to stop a potential disaster in your home by noticing a leaky pipe or a broken window. Most professional pet sitters carry bonding and insurance, which protect the client and the sitter.
Hiring a professional pet sitter when your travel allows your pet to remain at home, provides added security measures in your absence, and provides you a little peace of mind knowing that someone is checking on your home as well. Bon Voyage!
