Benefits of using a Professional In-Home Pet Sitter
There are many benefits to using an in-home professional pet sitter, for both pets and pet parents. Whether you are away for the day or for a week-long trip, you should always consider who you are allowing to care for your pets.
Benefits to the pets include:
Staying in their home in their secure environment with familiar sights, smells, and sounds.
Following their daily routines, diets, and exercise.
Having an abundance of love and personal attention.
Having someone responsible in case of an emergency and eliminating any trauma from traveling or unfamiliar environments.
Keeping them healthy from any unwanted illness or parasites exposed by other animals.
Benefits to the pet parent include:
Knowing that your pet is in loving and caring hands and having the confidence that a professional can deal with any unexpected issues.
Eliminating any trauma from transporting your pet and having to leave them.
Not having to impose on family or friends, and knowing your home is secure with someone going in and out through the day.
Here at PetMinders NJ, we have personally seen all these benefits keep pets and owners happy throughout the years. Everyone has unique needs and expectations, but safety and love are always a priority. As more and more people are traveling or returning to work, the need for animal care is growing.
If you don’t currently use a professional pet sitter, this may be the time to start your search for one. Even if you are still working from home or don’t have a trip planned, being prepared and having someone that both you and your pet are comfortable with is important. It is beneficial to give your pet time to adjust to a new caretaker before your routine starts to change.
Pets can suffer from stress and separation anxiety just as people do. Many people that have gotten new pets during the pandemic have been home with them most of the time. As people go back to work or even take vacations, it is becoming more common that these animals are attached to their owners and have a tough time coping with the changes. Having a trusted professional pet sitter that can come check on your fur-baby during the day (as frequently as you request) can alleviate the stress some of these pets suffer and prevent destructive behavior.
