Most importantly, a professional pet sitter has had certified training, and stays up-to-date on latest developments in emergency healthcare procedures, such as first aid and CPR.
Professional pet sitters are bonded and insured for your peace of mind. I also have had a professional background check performed.
A professional pet sitter is not a friend or neighbor you are hoping will fulfill their promise to do you a favor.
BENEFITS OF HAVING AN OVERNIGHT PET SITTER:
Your pet stays in the comfort of his home, where he is surrounded by familiar sights, sounds and smells.
Medications and other supplies stay safely home with your pet – no worrying about remembering to pack them all, only to have them forgotten or lost at a boarding facility – no worrying about someone at the boarding facility forgetting to administer medications, or not knowing how to administer medications.
Your pet is not exposed to the illnesses common at kennels, and will not be left alone at night.
Your pet’s routine is not interrupted, and your detailed instructions are followed regarding all aspects of your pet’s care.
Your home will have that “lived-in” look and won’t be a target for burglars. My overnight stays are not only 12-hour stays. Instead, during the course of the assignment, I “live” at the client’s house as I would my own.
