Why choose a pet sitter over a kennel?
When your pet stays at home for his care he is left in familiar surroundings, comfortable, kept on the same routine, doesn't experience the anxiety of going to an unfamiliar place, or kept up all night by the noise of a kennel environment. Pet sitters also provide a bit of home security by bringing in your mail and newspaper, taking out the garbage, rotating lights and blinds so potential burglars don't know you're away.
Why not ask a friend or family member instead of a pet sitter?
You are putting a lot of burden on your friend or family to care for your pets that may strain your relationship over time, plus with a professional pet sitter it brings peace of mind that comes from knowing that your pet is being cared for by an experienced professional.
