Questions about Pet Sitters

Don’t know what to do with your dog on your vacation? Pet sitting services are becoming more popular as an alternative to boarding pets in a kennel. Below are some frequently asked questions regarding pet sitting that you may find helpful when searching for a pet sitting service.

  • How is pet sitting different from using a kennel?
    Kenneling requires your pet to be boarded at a strange place, often for long periods of time if you are going to be away on vacation. Pet sitting, on the other hand, allows for the pet to stay in your home and the caretaker to come to your house. You don’t have to be on vacation to use a pet sitting service either, since many provide day care services, such as feeding and walks for dogs who are home alone for much of the day.

  • Is pet sitting better than using a kennel?
    Studies have shown that when pets, such as dogs and cats, are kept in their same environment and routine when the owner is away they are less stressed and more healthy. Furthermore, with senior pets or those with medical conditions, pet sitting often provides great one-on-one care. Some pet sitters will even provide additional services like overnight care, pet taxi and exotic animal care. However, keep in mind that since the caretaker will be coming into your home, the caretaker should be someone trustworthy.

  • Where can I find a good pet sitter?
    As mentioned above, since pet sitting involves the caretaker coming into your home, the caretaker should be someone you can trust. There are several pet sitting associations whose members are required to provide high quality pet care. Also, research any prospective service before allowing them to enter your home.
