There are numerous benefits to using a professional pet sitter. Each day you are away, Critter Sitters will visit your home to feed, care for, play with and provide customized routines set forth by you for your home and pets, including dog walks and pet sitting.
More than 70% of all households in the U.S. have some kind of pet. According to the American Humane Society, these pets are happiest when they're at home, surrounded by familiar sights, sounds and smells.
ACCORDING TO EXPERTS:
Pets prefer a familiar, stress free environment, regular diet, personal attention, exercise and their normal schedule. Leaving pets under the care of a professional pet sitter in the pets home minimizes exposure to illness and stress. Being home also minimizes lack of sleep in a kennel due to noise, over population or minimal one on one time.
Parents prefer customized routines and schedules based on their pets individual needs, and not imposing on friends or neighbors. Clients also enjoy the convenience of not having to transport their pets or be forced to leave their pets at boarding facilities during non pickup hours.
