Why “in home” pet sitting makes sense
Let’s face it, we love our pets like our kids – hence why we refer to our clients as furkids. And I’m sure that leaving your kid for any period of time can be stressful for you.
But what about them?
With Ace Pet Care, you will be using a trusted and experience house sitter service. We are bonded and insured in the state of Texas. We also have nearly ten years of professional experience operating in the Austin area for dog sitting, cat sitting and housesitting services.
And this makes sense for your needs.
Pet boarding, dog kennels and dog day care is not for every pet. In fact, if this is your first vacation, a new environment might cause fairly severe stress and anxiety. Depending on your furkid, kenneling and dog boarding might not be a possibility either.
Why is that the case?
Animals, just like humans, can experience various levels of stress, anxiety and excitement, just like happiness, contentment and calm. And, much like humans, not every large event, like a move, death in the family, new schedule or even vacation, will be 100% stress-free.
Choose Ace Pet Care for in-home pet sitting
There are many reasons why Ace Pet Care should be your choice for your Austin house sitting and pet sitting services. However, we are going to narrow them down to these three…
1 – Your furkid’s stress goes to zero in most circumstances
Nobody likes change. This includes your pets.
The simple fact of the matter when it comes to in home pet sitting is that your pet can stay in their home environment. The separation between you and them is going to be tough enough…why make it tougher?
Because in house pet sitting is chosen, your furkid is cared for much the same way you would. Many times, we have habits and schedules that our furkids are used to. At Ace Pet Care, we continue these during our visits.
- Pee and yard breaks
- Specific meal times
- Specific play and activity times
- Socializing times and locations
- Treats (type and times)
The issue with boarding and kennels is that the above, what makes your furkid the MOST happy, is on their time and not your pet’s time. This can add stress and anxiety to a situation for your pets that is already filled with both.
2 – Your pet sitter is doing more than just “pet things”
Depending on the service ordered, selecting Ace Pet Care as your inhouse pet sitter means you get a little extra. Remember, you are away on vacation. Extended trips could mean issues with not knowing about your home, its security and your home’s safety.
However, with an in home sitter, your home is as safe as your pet.
Ace Pet Care is insured through Business Insurers of the Carolinas. We are also bonded through Travelers Casualty and Surety Company of America.
To feel truly safe, we can also, upon request:
- Collect mail and newspapers
- Turn off and on the lights
- Open and close drapes and shades
- Turn the television and radio on and off
- Actively move outside to show activity
Basically, an in home pet sitter is also your in house burglary deterrent in many ways. Although the cost of in home pet sitting and house sitting can be more than pet boarding, the true value of this peace of mind for yourself for your home security is real and without a price tag.
3 – Kennel cough is real
We’re sorry. We don’t want to scare you at all.
But the seriousness of this condition is real, and so is your pet’s reaction to it. Symptoms can include:
- Honking cough (sounds of a goose)
Furkids with symptoms and this diagnosis need to be separated from other animals. If your furkid is diagnosed with kennel cough, he or she will be prescribed with antibiotics. Treatment is also aided with a humidifier to ease these symptoms, or a steam filled bathroom from a shower.
The nature of a kennel, close quarters and with numerous clients, allows for the quick airborne transmission of the virus.
In contrast, an in home pet sitter not only limits transmission of the virus, but also prevents your furkid from direct contact with animals. And, because a healthy furkid is happy and comfortable, in home pet sitting is a superior option.
