A lot of people think that hiring a pet sitter while you’re at work or out of town is an unnecessary expense. I mean, going out of town can be expensive as it is and after all of those long hours at work you don’t want to see your hard earned money go to waste, right?  It’s no wonder a lot of people turn to their friends or neighbors when they need someone to check up on the pets.  While it can be easy on your wallet, it is not always easy on your pet.  Here are just a few reasons why professional pet sitters are always the best bet.

Your Pets Come First –Often when you have a friend or neighbor commit to check on your pets they don’t make it a priority.  If they oversleep and are late for work, then your pet may be waiting all day for them to come after hours.  With a pet sitter, you don’t have to worry about that because taking care of your pet is our job.  Our main goal is to make sure your pets are safe and sound.  Not to mention, if they have an emergency like their car breaks down or they get sick, it will more than likely means your pets are going without a visit.  A professional pet sitter will never be late or not show up.  Even in case of an emergency we have back up sitters in place to make sure your pet is cared for.

We have knowledge – Our pets sitters are also equipped to handle all sorts of problems that could arise.  If the unthinkable happens and your pet falls ill, we have the experience needed to make sure that they are taken care of properly.  Neighbors and friends do not always know the signs and symptoms that need to be checked out right away.  When you pet becomes sick, their condition can worsen far more quickly than you think.  Your neighbor or friend may want to “wait it out” until you get home, but sometimes they need to see the vet as soon as possible.  We also make sure to take time to engage in play with your pets and take them out for walks when needed.  We will make sure to spend plenty of time with your pet giving them much needed interaction while you’re away.

We can get your mail too! – You may think that we’re there just to feed and walk your dog, but that’s not all we do.  We can get your mail, water your plants, turn lights on and off to deter criminals, and basically make sure everything is fine while you’re gone.  Our pet sitters will come and clean up any messes your pets make, while gathering the mail and watering plants that need it.

It’s easy to think that your neighbor can just come by to check up on the fur-babies the same as a pet sitter, but in reality that’s just not the best option. Even with the best intentions, friends and neighbors usually can’t provide the level of devotion and professionalism that a pet sitter can. So, why cut corners on your loved ones?  Saving a few bucks won’t save you the worry of whether or not your neighbor or friend made it over to your house.   Make sure to give your pets the best and yourself some peace of mind at the same time by hiring a professional pet sitter.
