Going away is exciting but can also be nerve racking with worry about leaving our pet behind. It doesn’t have to be so worrisome. One of the best options is to leave your pet home with a pet sitter. Most pets prefer staying at home if they can’t go. Here are the top 5 reasons to hire a pet sitter.
Top 5 Reasons To Hire A Pet Sitter
1. Comfort of Home
Home is where your pet is most comfortable. They know where to eat, sleep, and relax. Your pet feels safe and secure at home. Everything is familiar. At home your pet does not have to experience a strange environment, other pets, or scents and sounds therefore making your absence less stressful.
Hiring a pet sitter is convenient for you. This is especially true if you have multiple pets. Trying to get all the pets and the necessary supplies loaded up for travel or to take to a kennel is a chore.
3. Less Stress
Staying at home is less stressful for your pets. Pets like the familiarity of their routing and surroundings. Some pets become very anxious when left in a new environment especially if you aren’t there with them. Cats do not usually do well with boarding or kenneling. They prefer their own home.
4. No Imposition on Family & Friends
Although having a friend, neighbor, or family member care for your pet is much cheaper than hiring a pet sitter. Having someone commit to visiting your pet several times while you are away can be a huge imposition. They may also lack the knowledge and experience in knowing what to do if your pet becomes ill or injured.
5. Peace of Mind
The most important reason to hire a pet sitter is peace of mind knowing your pet is in good hands. An experienced, professional pet sitter is reliable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable regarding pet care. Going away shouldn’t be stressful for you or your pet. A pet sitter will show up, when they say they will, and will provide the utmost care and love for your pet. They will also keep in contact with you while you are away to ease your mind.
If you are planning a trip, we recommend hiring a professional pet sitter. Having the right person care for your pet will make going away easier and more relaxing for both you and your pet.
