** March 3-10, 2019: Professional Pet Sitters Week **

There are many reasons to hire a professional pet sitter. The most obvious reason is keeping your loved pet in the comfort and safety of their own home (along with being around familiar objects that surround them everyday). Your pet(s) also get to eat from their own bowl, sleep in their own bed and the most important reason is they are not exposed to various illnesses or sickness of other pets that may come from a group situation at a kennel. Professional Pet Sitters can make multiple visits several times a day to provide food, water, exercise, interaction and loving attention that your pet is accustomed to. Many also offer overnight pet sitting in your home.

Hiring a professional means you don’t have to impose on family or friends and allows you to relax, knowing the pet sitter can take care of all your pet’s needs. Professional Pet Sitters are insured, bonded, and can provide references. We will not only take care of your pets, you can travel knowing that your home will also be cared for. The services of a Professional Pet Sitter are truly indispensable for pet parents who want exceptional care for their pets.
