Why Should You Hire A Pet Sitter?

Below is why we believe you should hire a pet sitter for your fur babies.

Less Stress for Your Pet

Your dog or cat will be stressed enough when you go away. He or she doesn’t need the added stress of having to live in a boarding kennel or cattery.

Imagine how the poor thing feels trying to cope with being left on its own in a strange place.

And, to make matters worse he or she will be surrounded by other dogs and cats who are feeling the same way.

A pet sitter comes to your home and feeds, walks, and probably spoils your pet, while it is having a stress-free time in its own home.

As many pets can suffer illness from stress and anxiety, having a pet sitter come and look after it will also help keep your pet healthier and more relaxed.


When you use a pet sitter who is experienced and licensed you to know you are getting the best, most reliable service.

You can relax knowing that your pet sitter is going to come to your home at the same time each day, and fulfill the requirements you have stipulated.

They can, not only walk your dog, feed and clean up any mess, but they can also give medication, water the plants and put your mail away safely.

Pet sitters are professional business people. They take their job seriously.

Sure, you can ask the teen down the road to do the same job for you.

But do you feel confident that he or she is going to be reliable enough to make sure your beloved pet is well looked after?

Peace of Mind for You

Nothing spoils a holiday than worrying if your pets are being cared for properly.

Can you imagine the anxiety holidaymakers feel not knowing if their pet is being fed or has enough water?

A pet sitter can take special care of your dog or cat. They can leave extra water out if the weather warms up or make sure your pet has extra blankets if it’s cold.

Choosing a pet sitter is now easier than ever, too.

  1. I really like what you said about how hiring a pet sitter can give you the peace of mind that your pet has a companion and is being fed appropriately. My son is taking a two-week-long photography assignment overseas, and unfortunately, his Labrador wouldn’t be able to come. I will be sure to advise him to start looking for a pet sitter that can make sure that his Lab is safe, secure, supervised, and well-fed during his absence.

    1. Hiya Kit,

      Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!! Your so right, letting his lab stay in his usual & comfortable environment will be so beneficial to him! Does he need a hand finding a house sitter?

      Britt 🙂
