If you’re a pet owner planning a break, whether it’s a short weekend stay or a long two week holiday, you’ll need to make sure your pet is cared for until you return.
Many dog owners fret and worry about their dogs while they’re away and want a pet care service that will put their mind at rest. Traditional boarding kennels have been used by dog owners for many years but they have their downfalls and in recent years many people have started turning their backs on them. You’ll often find dogs locked up in small cages with uncomfortable sleeping conditions. The opportunities for exercise and play are short and infrequent and other dogs may bully or intimidate bashful dogs during this time. Staff are there to merely do a job and love and affection may be in short supply. All these disadvantages add up to an environment that many dog owners simply say ‘no’ to.
Luckily there are alternatives meaning you don’t have to sacrifice your holiday. Pet sitters are growing in popularity and may well be the right choice for you. The main advantage to choosing pet sitters is they allow your pooch to stay in the comfort of their own home. Instead of having to take them out of their familiar environment, a dog lover will come to your home and care for your dog. Arriving in the evening with lots of cuddles, they’ll feed and play with your dog for as long as you require. Many stay overnight in your home so they’re there when your dog wakes up. Pet sitters generally stay for a minimum of 12 hours, returning again that evening.
If your dog is used to having day time company you can choose pet sitters who also stay throughout the day. Giving your dog the consistency they need to feel completely at home, pet sitters are a wonderful, flexible alternative to boarding kennels.
