Why choose a pet sitter ?
Pets with Anxiety
No matter how loving or wonderful a boarding facility may be-- private or commercial-- some dogs just need to stay in their own home environment. Elderly, sick dogs and dogs with anxiety issues may do better at home with a Pet sitter visiting them several times in a day than in a new, foreign setting. Finding themselves suddenly in an unfamiliar home or facility can be overwhelming for the pet with anxiety disorders.
Most little dogs are thrilled to have the companionship of other little doggies and the love and attention of The Doggie Nanny! However, for a small number of dogs, a change of environment can bring out anxiety, destructive or nervous behaviors that overwhelm the dog and the care provider.
For these dogs staying in an new, unknown home is not the answer. We recommended the families take their dog with them on vacation, have a family member or friend provide care-- or have a professional Pet Sitter visit the house several times a day and care for the dog in their home environment.
Many Pet sitters advertise at local supermarkets or community bulletin boards; many now even have have websites. Your local Veterinarian or Groomer should also be a good resource for for a Pet sitter recommendation.
As many pet lovers know, when you know your little fur baby is happy, your vacation is all the more enjoyable too!
