Vacationing should be a relaxing time with the entire family and to have a great time, the event should be worry free at all cost. However, if you are a pet owner then it can be extremely difficult for you not to fret about your pets when you away on your holidays. There has been a shift in the usual way of doing things, and pet owners are now turning away from traditional boarding for their pets, and nowadays they prefer in-home pet sitting over boarding to help their pets feel more comfortable and be stress-free at their vacation.
So, why are pet owners moving away from traditional boarding and what does in-home pet sitting entail? The reason is simple, your pet will stay in their comfort zone and get to live in a familiar environment, so they won’t panic like they would in boarding. They would take their time getting used to the environment and that can be a negative thing for your pet.
While in-home pet setting offers a pet sitter that can visit your home in your absence 2 to 3 times a day to feed, potty, exercise and play with your pet to keep them in good condition and happy. If you want to, you can always have the pet sitter stay at your place the entire time you are gone.
This is a great arrangement for a pet owner, as some pet sitters also offer additional services like taking the garbage out, watering the plants, and take care of the house during a long absence. This service also gives your pet the advantage to develop a bond with the pet sitter, so things can run smoothly both for your pet and the pet sitter.
This is also a great advantage of an in-house pet sitter which allows your pet to be comfortable around the pet sitter and that is the number one objective, to allow your pet to feel more comfortable during your absence.
Compared to boarding facilities, your pet can take plenty of time getting used to the environment with all the loud noises that dogs make especially when your dog is not used to it. It can be a chaotic scenario for your dog and you don’t want them to go through it especially when you are having a good time.
