Pet sitter or boarding kennel: Who should care for your pet while youre away? – Part 9

As a former pet sitter, I would have to say that they a great way to have your pet taken care of while you are on vacation, instead of taking them to a kennel.

Other than the obvious reason I support people using pet sitters to take care of their pets, that I got paid to watch other peoples pets, there are a few good reasons to skip the kennel and use a pet sitter.

One benefit to having your pet taken care of by a pet sitter instead of taking them to a kennel, is that the pet gets to stay in a place it feels comfortable, your home. Your pet can stay in a safe, comfortable place. At your home, your pet can sleep in its normal bed, as opposed to a cage, such as a cat or dog would be put in. Your pet will be much happier not to be in a cage.

Another benefit is that with the pet sitter, your pet does not have to travel anywhere. Most pets, other than maybe dogs, do not like to travel places in cars. And with dogs, even they can tell when they are going to the vet, or someplace like the vet.

Both the travel and staying in a small place that is not home can be very stressful for a pet. Stress is not good for you, it’s not good for your pet. Prevent stress on your pet, let a pet sitter take care of them the next time you go on vacation instead of taking them to a kennel.
