Pet Sitting is the Best Option for Your Furry Friend

Pet Sitting is the Best Option for Your Furry Friend

One of the hardest things about making plans to go on vacation is leaving your pet behind. It feels like leaving a part of your family at home while you travel, relax, and enjoy yourself. It's heartbreaking because our pets become a part of who we are. They're engrained in our hearts and such a huge part of our lives. Leaving them alone is almost too much to bear. So, what should you do?

Comfort is Key

One of the main drawbacks when it comes to leaving your pet behind is the thought of them spending their days in a pen or a small room, all alone or surrounded by other animals they don't know. It's often a stressful image, especially when you know you'll be having a fun, carefree adventure. That's where pet sitting comes to the rescue. Pet sitting provides a way for your pet to feel safe, loved, and taken care of in your absence. Staying at home, a place they're familiar with and comfortable in makes the days or week that you're gone less stressful for your furry friend.

They'll Have Fun Too

If you were to leave your pet in a kennel, they'd probably spend most of their time alone, wondering where you are. But, if you choose pet sitting, your dog or cat will spend time lounging on the couch, spending time with their new friend, and playing to their heart's content. Whether you choose to have a pet-sitter stop by 3 times a day or stay overnight, your pet won't feel alone or abandoned. Our pet sitters will play with them, pet them, take them on walks, and cuddle with them. After all, we love pets too.

Don't Worry, Be Happy

Pets often suffer from anxiety when their owner leaves for extended periods of time. They miss the constant company, the loving belly rubs, and the walks around the neighborhood. When a pet sitter stays with your pet while you're away they still get to enjoy all of their day-to-day luxuries. They'll miss you, but they won't suffer anxiety and distress because you're gone. It's the best thing you can do for your pet.

One is a Lonely Number

No one likes to be alone, and that's true for pets too. They don't want to spend hours a day in solitude. Pet kennels don't completely ignore their guests, but there's no way they can focus solely on your pet when there are so many others demanding their attention. Your pet will get a few minutes of affection here and there, and then they'll be on their own again. Pets, especially those who are extremely close with their owners, need a lot more than that to stay happy and healthy. They're used to being the center of attention, and they won't understand why they suddenly aren't. A pet-sitter has all the time in the world to spend with your pet. They're there to make sure your pet is healthy, safe, well-fed, and loved.

Pet sitting is the best way to make your vacation, not only bearable but enjoyable for your pet. You won't have to worry that your pet is alone, unattended, or not getting enough exercise. At Dog Haus University, we take care of your pet as if they were our own because we love pets. They're not only our business, they're our world. And we know just how special your pet is to you.
