Dogs Are Happier In A Familiar Environment
What do you do with your dog when you have to be away from home because of a business trip or vacation? You can put them in a kennel, but that’s a strange place to your dog, where they will spend most of the time in a cage or small room.
Dogs are happier when they can stay in a familiar environment while you are away.
The Pet Butlers’ in-home pet sitting service allows your dog to stay in a place they are familiar with – their own home.
A kennel subjects your dog to unfamiliar surroundings with lots of strange dogs, which can be stressful. Boarding in a kennel also increases your dog’s chances of picking up a contagious illness such as kennel cough.
In-home Pet Sitting Provides Your Dog More Freedom
At a kennel, your dog does not get the freedom to roam that is provided by in-home pet sitting. In a kennel they spend much of their time in a small room or cage. At home, your dog is in familiar surroundings and has the freedom to walk around the house and bark at the squirrels outside.
The Pet Butlers provide the personal, one-on-one attention and love your pet needs which a kennel just cannot do.
In-home Sitting Reduces Your Dog’s Stress
When you must travel, leaving your dog can cause them stress. Leaving them in unfamiliar surroundings like a kennel only increases the stress level.
In-home pet sitting reduces the stress your dog will feel when you must leave for a few days.
The Pet Butlers will come by from 1 to 3 times a day, according to your needs. We let your dog outside, feed them, and play with them. We give your dog plenty of attention and love and send you photo updates so you can see how they are doing.
Another advantage of in-home pet sitting is overnight stays. We can stay with your pet at your home overnight so they get to sleep in their normal surroundings and have someone with them at night.
A kennel may not be staffed at night, so if an emergency arises it will be morning before anyone knows there is a problem. With an overnight stay there is always a person there for emergencies who can contact the emergency veterinarian. You also get the benefit of a house sitter at night with an overnight stay.
Reduce Your Dog’s Stress When You Are Traveling
In-home pet sitting by The Pet Butlers provides the individual care, love, and attention your dog needs. It gives your dog a structured and stable environment to keep them happy and free of stress or separation anxiety while you are away.
