Professional Dog Care

For many of us, a “welcome home” from a pet is just another sign of why we work hard and lead busy lives. In reality over 57% of American homes have pets. That is more U.S. homes with pets than with youngsters. And if you are one of the average pet owners that can’t always take their pets with them on pleasure or work trips, you’ll be facing the necessity to find quality professional¬†dog care while you are away.

Dog ownwers today are taking better care of their pets than ever before. Just about 45% of animal owners carry around photos of their pets. 1/2 of all animal owners report that they consider their pets to be family members. Pets are a part of the family, and we expect them to be similarly cared for. And caring dog owners love the extra security and attention pets receive from pro care.

Many dog owners work long hours, get stuck at work often, or endure long commutes on an everyday basis. Home based pet care is an alternative option to leaving your pet home alone for extended amounts of time. This is a nice option for puppies being housetrained and new pets just learning the routine.

Did you know 76% of dog owners use some form of pet care while traveling. Many pet care professionals have developed a web site that may answer the most common and crucial questions pet owners could ask – including Are they insured? Have they got references? Do they have employees? Are overnights available? What are their rates? Are there any coupons available? And how long have you been in operation?

So if you are one of the married pet owners who greet their pet first when you return home from work, or are one of the 65% that have sung or danced with your pet, consider contacting your local pet sitter or home-run dog boarding and day care to set up an “initial consultation” (usually free). You will be happy you did the next time you find yourself stuck late at work knowing your puppy isn’t waiting patiently by the door with crossed legs!
