Important To Know
In home pet sitting provides your dog with a more stress free and happier environment. In-home pet sitters can provide the personalized touch most kennels and boarding facilities cannot provide.
Pet Sitting Home Field Advantage
The best benefit of hiring an in-home pet sitter is that it will allow your pets to stay in your home and receive care in a relaxed and comfortable environment. The stress of a stranger caring for the dog can already be high. When the sitter is in the dog’s space the dog will be able to relax quicker due to the familiar environment. A pet sitter is also able to operate on the schedule you and your dog are familiar with. A kennel would have its own set schedule and health risks that come with housing many animals in a single area. Pet sitting in your home is the most comfortable option for your pet.
In Home Pet Sitting Provides Individualized Care
Another benefit of having a pet sitter stay at your home is the individual care they can give to your pet. Had your animal been sent to a kennel they would not receive one on one time with the many staff members of the kennel and either being alone in a cage or in a group with a lot of dogs. With an in-home sitter your pet will receive the one on one time they crave and be able to enjoy the comfort of their own home with a sitter they can grow comfortable with.
Avoiding Hazards With Pet Sitting
The final benefit of an in-home sitter is avoiding any hazards that may occur at a kennel. Kennels are well known for housing many animals at a time. They cannot guarantee that any of the animals they are currently watching are free of any parasites or viruses that your pet would then be exposed to. You won’t have to worry about your pet getting the fleas or worms or catching kennel cough, giardiasis, and distemper when your dog is safe at home.
