Every dog deserves a little pampering from time to time or maybe you just work long hours and leave your dog home alone all day, and you feel a bit guilty about it. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up your career to avoid that guilt. There are plenty of options out there for dog owners who don’t have time to walk their pets regularly. Whatever your situation is, here are two pet services you can use to reward your pup:
Pet sitting is an increasingly popular option for pet owners who want their cats, dogs or whatever you pet may be, to be well cared for while you are busy at work or on a holiday. If you’re a pet owner, the thought of leaving your best friend behind when you travel can be heartbreaking. But with a little extra planning, you can bring home happy memories for both you and your pet. Pets are happier at home. Pets hate going to the vet and they also don’t like being caged up at boarding facilities. There is also less risk of illness, when animals are put into unfamiliar environments such as kennels or shelters, they are exposed to other animals and possible diseases or parasites that can affect their health. While all reputable boarding facilities take precautions against this type of thing happening, it makes sense to minimize the risks by keeping your pet at home. Furthermore, pets hate being in unfamiliar environments, that’s what makes a pet sitter so essential, allowing your pup to stay in their own comfortable environment where they can eat and sleep according to their usual routine. Brisbane Pet Sitting offer pet sitting services & pet visits, perfect for dogs & cats or if you just have an animal that only requires a quick 15 minute visit every day or couple of days, this can be a cost effective solution for you. So you don’t need to worry about your pet getting stressed, lonely or bored. Many sitters will also do other things like feed and walk your dog, which can help reduce the risk of your dog getting depressed or anxious of the owner being away.
Dog walking services are another option for pet owners who are too busy to walk their dogs or alternatively, just want their dog to get out of the house during the day! Dogs are social animals and love to be with a pack, and someone they can trust. That’s why Brisbane Dog Walkers provides group and private dog walks with a regular walker. Allowing your dog to become accustomed to their walker & treat them as part of their pack. Private dog walks are available for dogs who may have slight behaviour issues, are getting a bit old, or just deserve a bit of extra attention. Group walks are perfect for friendly dogs with lots of energy, allowing the pack size to grow even more! In addition to a regular walker Brisbane Dog Walkers groups dogs for walks by size, personality and a max group of 4 dogs, meaning all dogs get the attention they deserve! Hiring a dog walker is one of the best things you can do to help prevent boredom, separation anxiety from getting worse, or even depression in your dog. These services usually provide 1-hour walks any time during the day. And if you’re really strapped for time, Brisbane Dog Walkers even offer pet sitting with dog walks included, meaning they stay with your pup so they won’t be left alone overnight!
