If you’re hankering to take a vacation, or if your daily routine simply keeps you away from your furry friend for long periods of time, you may want to consider enlisting the services of a dog sitter. Here are some things to consider when looking for the ideal pet sitter.
March 3rd, 2019 kicks off Professional Pet Sitters Week! It’s a perfect time to say thanks to the wonderful people who care for your pooches while you’re away. Here are a few nice gestures that will help show your gratitude.
If you plan to leave your dog at home during the eight hours or so while you’re at work, or if you just plan to be out of the house for a while, your pooch is going to at least need a potty break and maybe a bit more care.
Not all dogs do well in daycare, and they may be asked to leave. It happens. So, what do you do if your dog gets “the boot?”
Both you and your dog should feel comfortable with the kennel before the stay even begins. Before you drop your dog off, check the kennel’s references; go on a tour; and ask about details regarding exercise, feeding, and other care.

Making a safe home for your dog or puppy
Dogs who suffer from separation anxiety are more likely to end up in shelters; felines can also succumb to the unfortunate side effects of being away from their owners.
