What is Pet Sitting?

Wikipedia tells us a pet sitter “is a contracted service provider who takes care of a pet or other animal at its own home.” I would have to agree with that definition as it is fairly general but to the point. However after providing pet sitting service for hundreds if not thousands of clients through 2DawgNite.com, I can honestly say pet sitting is so much more. For me, pet sitting is not only about caring and providing for your loved ones, it’s also about building a unique and special relationship with each and every animal I am blessed enough to meet. I absolutely adore it when I visit a client’s house and their dog comes running up to me super excited as I enter the house, tail wagging and all. I can honestly say I really do love animals and building a strong relationship with them is an amazing feeling that I wouldn’t trade for the world.

Will Pet Sitting Work for You?

The professional pet sitting industry has grown substantially over the past few years and continues to grow rapidly. Many pet owners have taken the time and expressed to me the reasons why they feel there is an advantage to using professional pet sitters. Some of them include but are not limited to…

  • Reduced Stress on Pets because they never have to leave and are cared for in their own homes, which is already a familiar environment. Some pets get very nervous when they are in new and uncomfortable surroundings.
  • Pets are able to stay on their usual routines and are not required to adapt to a completely new schedule or environment.
  • Exposure to parasites or illness from other animals is greatly reduced as your pets never have to leave the comfort of their homes.
  • Vaccinations are far less restrictive than those provided by a regular kennel and have been known to reduce stress in animals as it is a quick fix rather than a long drawn out process.
  • Elderly or disabled clients often hire pet sitters to exercise and care for their pets if they are unable to do so. With absolutely no worries about transporting their animals as pet sitters travel to you
  • Everyone needs some personal relax time to break away from the daily grind. Friends, family and neighbors will not feel inconvenienced as they might be required to break-up their own schedule to look after your little one.
