Why Hire a Pet Caregiver?

 

Hiring a pet caregiver can provide amazing benefits for your pet, as well as for you.

 

1. Health – Pets need regular and consistent exercise to live long, healthy, and happy lives. Many pets will acquire specific health problems in their lifetime that could easily be prevented or diminished with proper exercise.

 

2. Socialization and Stimulation – Dog walking and cat visits not only help give your pet exercise she/he needs, but it also stimulates his/her senses. This stimulation often includes meeting other people or animals, which can be an excellent way to encourage proper socialization.  As humans, we often take for granted these brief encounters and stimuli, and we can easily forget that these are frequently the highlights of our pet’s day.

 

3. Behavior – Regular exercise helps to release excess energy in your pet, resulting in calmer behavior at home. With frequent, lengthy walks, your pet will be less inclined to bark, chew, bite, use the bathroom indoors, etc.

 

4. Peace of Mind – Hiring a pet caregiver gives you the peace of mind that your pet is well taken care of, even when you aren’t at home. With a daily dog walker, or pet visit, you don’t have to worry as much if you need to stay late for work, or if your dog doesn’t completely “finish” when you take them out in the morning. The knowledge that your dog will get quality time outdoors during the day also helps relieve the guilt or stress held by knowing your pup is otherwise locked up alone, often for 8 or more hours every day.

 

5. Time – We all live busy lives, and every minute counts. Sometimes, consistent lengthy walks are difficult to fit into our schedules. We often wake up extra early, head home for our lunch hours, and delay making dinner for our families in an effort to make sure our pets get the care they need. With a regular dog walker, cat visits, you pet your still gets all of the exercise and attention they deserve, while you get back a great deal of time.
