- Why should I hire a professional pet sitter?
If you are like most pet owners, you hate leaving your pet in unfamiliar surroundings when you travel. Pet care experts agree that in home pet care is much easier on your pet. It reduces stress, greatly reduces their exposure to illness and parasites and avoids stomach upset by keeping them on their normal schedule, diet and potty routine. Plus, your pet gets one on one quality time doing whatever they desire! Whether it is walking, playing, light grooming or just lounging around! Also, in home pet care is less stressful on you! There is no transporting your pet anywhere, or imposition on friends, relatives or neighbors who often are too busy and may not make your home and pets top priority. We provide security for your pets and your home and provide you peace of mind while you are away. We are true professionals.
