If you are a pet owner, whenever you have to go out of town on a business meeting, a vacation or a wedding, your biggest concern will always be where to leave your cat or dog in your absence. The task becomes even more difficult when you have never left your pet alone with anyone else or on their own ever. There is always a concern regarding such pets, whether they are too fearful to be left alone or if left with someone trustworthy, it is still a risk because they could be socially unpredictable in a foreign environment. If you are planning to leave them at home, then surely you would need a pet sitter to take care of their needs and your other option is boarding which can also be unpredictable because you don’t know how they will do and behave with other animals and what about at night when no one is around?
You will have all these questions and can be your biggest concern to your travel plans. Traditionally, pet boarding has been the go-to solution for pet owners who leave their pets behind, but boarding is frowned upon because of their cold concrete, steel or plastic cages outlook.
However, that has completely changed now, and pet hotels now offer all the amenities that are common, and your dog can relax in his/her doggie cot and watch TV. Your cat can retire to her suite whenever she wants and enjoys her catnip bubble playtime. You don’t have even to take your pets to the boarding facility because the boarding facility now offers a shuttle service that makes boarding arrangements even easier.
Although, pricing for these boarding services are extremely expensive and very heavily on the kind of service you opt for your pet. The more personal attention provided to your pet means higher the fees. However, these add-ons can also run up the fees. So, boarding can be expensive, and the other alternative pet owners have pet sitters.
The amazing advantage and great benefit of hiring a pet sitter are that the pets can stay in their comfortable environment and that can be a stress relief for them. A live-in pet sitter can be of great benefit, and the most important one is that your pet will have a companion with them always.
A live-in pet sitter can add to the bill, but it can never be as expensive as a boarding facility.
