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.
