Make Sure Your Puppy is Well Taken Care of While You’re Away

Connect with a loving pet sitter and set up daily visits today.

If you know you will be away from home because of upcoming travel plans or just long days at the office, it’s time to also make some arrangements for your puppy. For some, dogs will go where they go, but others opt to leave their furry family member in the comfort in their own home. Your pup will surely be happy to stay at home as long as it means they get to sleep in their own bed and their feeding and walking schedule will not be interrupted.

Unless your puppy absolutely loves to travel, the best option is to have a pet sitter come in and take care of your puppy or set up daily drop-in visits. It’s not enough to just leave some food and a bowl of water for your puppy while you’re away. Things can quickly go wrong if your puppy is left alone, and you don’t want to put your young puppy through the stress and anxiety of being left alone or a drastic change in their surroundings. Daily visits are a great way for a trusted individual to come into your home, check up on your furry family member, and make sure everything is under control. Your puppy gets some added TLC which is always a nice bonus. The best part is that you will have peace of mind knowing your puppy is safe and their health and welfare is not compromised because of your schedule.

Many people turn to their social circle to find a pet sitter or friend they can trust to take care of their pet when they are away. When this isn’t an option, and you’re in need of a quality pet sitter, PetSitter.com has you covered. Whoever you decide to hire, be sure you’ve thoroughly researched their work history with other clients. Ask for references and consider doing a background check as well. Pet sitters, especially if its something as frequent as a daily puppy visit, will interact closely with your home and you want to make sure you are bringing in someone that will not only do a great job but is trusted as well.  

Go ahead and get connecting with our animal lovers who are excited to get to work with your adorable puppy while you’re away.

What others are saying
It was so simple to find a pet sitter for our puppy Lola. I felt much better that she was in a loving home rather than boarded in a kennel. Overall, a great experience! Jenna R, Colorado

How Often Should You Schedule Puppy Visits?

Many people think a single visit to the home is adequate. While that may be enough if you are working long hours and will come home at the end of the day, two daily visits are recommended if you are leaving on a longer trip.

If your puppy is on a regular feeding and walking schedule, your pet sitter should visit during those times to maintain the familiar routine. It can be very stressful for a young puppy who is on a schedule to have to deal with one big meal and the fact that the family is also gone. Multiple visits also allow the pet sitter to monitor any unusual changes in behaviour, eating, and the overall energy levels. More than one visit per day also reduces stress levels for your puppy by giving them some interaction, playtime and cuddles.

Lastly, if any complication or medical issue arises, it’s much easier to react rather than waiting for 24 hours in between visits for your pet sitter to take notice. When planning your next vacation or holiday travel, taking the extra time to find a trusted pet sitter to take care of your furry children will make this a much more enjoyable experience for the whole family.
