Professional Dog Care
For a lot of us, a “welcome home” from a pet is just another sign of why we work hard and lead busy lives. Did you know over 57% of American households own pets. That is more U.S. houses with pets than with children. And if you’re one of the average owners of pets that can’t always take their pets with them on pleasure or work trips, you will be facing the necessity to find quality pet care while you are away.
Owners today are taking better care of their pets than ever before. Virtually 45% of dog owners carry around pictures of their pets. Half of all dog owners report that they consider their pets to be family members. Pets are part of the family, and we expect them to be equally cared for. And caring pet owners love the additional security and attention pets receive from pro care.
Many dog owners work extended hours, get stuck at the office frequently, or endure long commutes on an everyday basis. Home based pet care is an alternative choice to leaving your pet home alone for extended periods. This is an ideal option for puppies being housetrained and new pets just learning the routine.
Did you know that 76% of animal owners use some form of pet care while traveling. Many pet care businesses have developed a web site that may answer the most asked and crucial questions animal owners can ask – including Are they insured? Have they got references? Have they got staff? Are overnights available? What are their rates? Are there any coupons available? And how long have you been in operation?
So if you’re one of the married dog owners who greet their pet first when you come home from work, or are one that has sung or danced with your pet, try contacting your local pet sitter or home based dog boarding and day care to line up an “initial consultation” (often free). You will be happy you did the next time you find yourself stuck late at work knowing your dog is not waiting patiently by the door with crossed legs!
