Holidays are the time of year we gather with family in a tradition of merry-making and memories. Often, consumed with busy days of preparations we neglect some of the things dear to us, including our pets. One way to keep this from happening is to hire a sitter. Hiring a pet sitter for your pet not only keeps them safe during the holidays, it prevents them from being placed on the back-burner until you’re freed-up. A pet sitter is a win-win deal. You ensure your pet is safe and in your physical absence of planning, errands, shopping, decorations, hosting and visitations, your pet receives individual and often, pampering and specialized care; consider it your gift to them.
In another article, Keep Your Pet Safe During the Holidays, I had the opportunity to interview Paul Mann, CEO of Fetch! Pet Care on his company, specific dangers to pets around the holidays, and how pet sitters are the perfect solution to eliminate accidents and stress. Hiring a pet sitter not only keeps your pet safe, it keeps them occupied with a loving companion. Although pet sitting isn’t new to the business world, it is a new concept for many people. With that in mind, I had more questions for Mr. Mann about the business of hiring pet sitters . Here’s what I found out:
Fetch! Pet Care sitters are available for customized care according to the needs of each customer. Sitters can provide multiple, daily visits to pets each day, sit during the daytime hours or complete overnight care in the comfort of the pet’s own home. This allows the pet to maintain a normal routine in their own environment. In addition to providing quality pet care, sitters will pick up mail and adjust the lighting within the home to portray a “lived-in” atmosphere for passer-bys. In many situations, Fetch! Pet Care sitters may opt to keep your pet in their home as an alternative to a boarding kennel .
If you’re concerned about the training Fetch! Pet Care sitters receive, no worries, Fetch! Pet Care sitters are selected after a rigorous screening and interview process that includes a criminal background check. Each sitter is reviewed after each assignment by the customer via a third party market research firm. Additionally, Fetch! Pet Care sitters are bonded, insured and come with a satisfaction guarantee. That’s more than you get with most holiday purchases!
In the event your pet has special needs, follows a strict diet, or requires medication, Fetch! Pet Care sitters are trained professionals experienced in administering medicine via pills, injections, subcutaneous shots, as well as fluids and special requirements. Fetch! Pet Care can provide care for pets of any age and all varieties; from pet mice to horses.
Utilizing a professional pet sitter during the holidays ensures your pet gets the proper care and activity they are accustomed to. In addition, hiring a pet sitter will help ease your mind and eliminate added stress for both you and your pet. One of the best aspects of using Fetch! Pet Care is every client is assigned a primary and secondary sitter that provides the customer with a free in-home consultation before services are performed. This allows you and your pet to become familiar with the sitter. In the unlikely event the primary sitter is unavailable the secondary sitter will provide the necessary care.
When pets are left alone for extended periods of time their food or water can be turned over, they can become tangled in their leash or experience fatal injuries as a result of a fire or medical emergency. Don’t risk the dangers of leaving your pet home alone. Secure their health and happiness with a sitter from Fetch! Pet Care; available in areas nationwide.
