The Benefits of Using a Professional Pet Sitter
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.
