YES, Your Pet Needs a Pet Sitter in Bel Air, MD!
Updated: Feb 17
Your pet needs daily attention to be
happy, healthy and safe!
Whether it’s just another normal day at the office or having to put in longer hours, attending your children’s extra-curricular activities or even traveling for work or the holidays, it’s important to proactively ensure your pet’s well-being every day.
While most dog owners realize their canines need more attention during the day for those all-important potty breaks, our felines need daily care too! It’s important to remember that our pets are creatures of habit and keeping to their normal routines enhances their overall well-being, happiness and even safety.
Whether you need your dog walked, your dog boarded, pet sitting, senior pet care or other small critter care, Your Pet AuPair of Bel Air, Maryland is ready to pamper your pet!
Peace of Mind from a Professional
Professional pet care has become a fast-growing industry of experienced pet experts. No longer do pet owners have to rely upon the kindness of friends, family or even the next-door neighbor kid trying to make a few extra bucks!
Even better, today’s pet professionals possess a wealth of information and hands-on experience in caring for the pets entrusted in their charge; including:
Pet First Aid; and
The ability to administer medications.
In addition, professional pet care companies like Your Pet AuPair, are licensed, bonded, background-checked and insured for your peace of mind and the best care and safety for your beloved pet and home.
Ensuring Your Pet’s Well-being and Safety
While many pets may seem content to wait until we come back home, there are many reasons to use a regular professional for your pet’s care. For example:
What if your heat or air conditioning breaks down? Your pet’s well-being could be put at risk.
Are you recovering from surgery or an illness? Keep your pet happy and content by keeping them on their regular routine and schedule!
Pets can become sick while you’re gone. They can swallow or choke on items like Q-tips, dental floss, rubber bands, electrical wires and more. Professional pet sitters like Your Pet AuPair can make sure your home and pet are safe and protected during the hours you can’t be there.
If your pet needs medical attention, the pet sitter can make sure they get the professional treatment they need as soon as possible.
Young puppies cannot “hold it” for long periods.
A consistent routine helps potty train a puppy faster.
Like puppies, many senior dogs need to go out more often.
Seniors often require regular and consistent medications.
Cats are nosy and curious creatures and can create havoc or get themselves
into trouble especially if they are bored. They can become trapped and cut off from food, water and even the litter box making for unpleasant surprises when the owner comes home. (Dogs aren’t exempt either!)
Certain Dog Breeds
Did you know that certain K9 breeds do not do well alone for long periods of time? It’s true and includes breeds like:
When Hiring a Pet Sitter: Avoid these Top 2 Mistakes!
Cheaper is not always better.
Remember, you are entrusting your home and your beloved pet to someone else! Don’t be fooled by cheap prices and fancy apps. “You get what you pay for” is still true today!
Do you really want to take a chance with your pet’s quality of care?
Also, cheaper often means little-to-no real-life experience. Pet sitters are your eyes and ears when you can’t be there. There is NO substitute for experience and true professionals know what to look for and more importantly, how to handle it.
Don’t wait until the last minute.
Just like you would never leave your child in the care of someone you don’t know well, always plan and schedule ahead to get the pet sitter you want and know to care for your pet. Always make sure they are well-experienced, licensed and insured for your protection as well (we are!) And always make sure you and your pet are both happy and comfortable with the pet sitter you choose.
So, the next time you need to leave Fido or Felix alone for a day, a week or even more, make sure you’re ready with a professional pet care expert!
