Leaving your beloved pets in a kennel can be a difficult thing to do. Thankfully, you can make the process easier for yourself by using our pet-sitting and animal ambulance services. These are just a few of the reasons your pet is better off with us than in a kennel.
1. We’re Locally Based and Dependable
Pets are an important part of your family, which is why you won’t want to leave your animal with just anyone. We launched our Daniel Island pet sitting service after we realised that we didn’t have anyone we trusted to care for our pets while we were away. It can be difficult to find someone that you can depend on to keep your pets safe while you’re on vacation. If you need a dependable pet sitter, you can count on us. We’re a married couple that lives right here on Daniel Island. We never miss an appointment, and we abstain from drinking and smoking. When you leave your pets with us, you can trust that they’ll be well cared for.
2. Boarding Can Be Difficult For Pets
Separation anxiety is a common issue for rescue pets. When animals are in a kennel, they may not understand that they aren’t being abandoned in a shelter. If you’re traveling, and you can’t bring your pets with you, a professional pet sitter is your best pet. Boarding can be stressful for any pets, even if they’re not a rescue. Think about how you’d feel if you were confined with a bunch of loud animals. Even though it’s common for kennels to offer play time, your pet will only get so much one-on-one attention. With a pet sitter, your pet can be cared for within the home. You’ll make things easier for both your pet and yourself.
3. We Provide Reliable Sitting Services
Asking a friend to care for your pets can feel like a gamble. If your cat chooses to hide, for example, can you trust that your friend will track it down? Some people will make the effort, but others won’t do anything more than make sure your pet’s food and water dishes are full. When you work with a pet sitter, however, you can specify the kind of care you want your pet to receive. You can outline your expectations and come to an agreement about the amount of time the sitter will be spending with your pet. Along with basics, such as feeding and cleaning a cat’s litter box, a sitter can provide your pet with attention and keep a watchful eye out for signs of injury, illness, or stress.
4. New Environments Can Be Difficult For Pets
At a boarding kennel, you can trust your pet’s basic needs will be met. Your pet will be fed, taken for walks, and will receive playtime. However, the kennel will have its own schedule. Many animals thrive on a daily routine. Losing that routine can be stressful for your pet, especially if you have an animal that suffers from anxiety.
5. A Sitter Can Give You Peace of Mind
It can be hard not to worry about your pet when you’re away from home. Your co-worker might have said she’d stop by to feed your pet later that day, but they could always forget. When you work with a pet sitter, you won’t have to stress about whether your pets are receiving the care that they need. You also won’t have to worry about your pets struggling in a kennel. You’ll be able to relax and enjoy yourself, knowing that your pet is well cared for.
6. You’ll Receive Photos of Your Pet
Every time your pet sitter visits your pet, you’ll be sent photos. You’ll receive regular updates during visits. You’ll feel close to your pet even when you’re away from home!
