First and foremost— Pets have much less, if any stress, when left in their own surroundings. Having a qualified pet sitter visit several times daily, gives them the time they need to exercise, play, and have meals and then return to their favorite spot to curl up and take a nap. Also you spend no time dropping them off and picking them up. You leave your home as though you will be right back……….Thus, they are waiting at the door when you return from your trip happy to see you, yet secure and comfortable..We send you daily correspondence and pictures. It’s a stress free win win for both you and your pet.
