I provide pet sitting services for the North Shore, including but not limited
to: Peabody, Middleton, Lynn, Danvers, Salem, Marblehead, Nahant, Swampscott,
Beverly, and Beverly Farms, Hamilton, Topsfield, and Wenham. I provide pet sitting
services for clients while on vacation or away on business, and/or on a daily
basis for the mid day walk while you're at work.
I've been a pet owner myself pretty much my entire life, and I love animals. I've been a professional pet sitter for over 5 years. Please check out my home page and references.
When you're at work, your pet is home alone. Ten or so hours is a long time to be alone and hold your bladder. I enjoy walking dogs and make a point of playing with your pet, not just walking. The result is a happier animal, as my customers often notice.
When you go on vacation, or out of town on business, pet sitting also has many advantages over the alternatives. For one thing your pet is already stressed by your absence. Being moved out of the house into a small cage surrounded by other apparently "abandoned" animals is very stressing. Animals often show signs of depression or anxiety after being kenneled. By comparison, home pet sitting leaves the animal in it's own home. They know they didn't "do something wrong" and that you're away and will come back. Pet owners who have kenneled in the past are often struck by how much happier the pet is when taken care of in the home. This applies not just to dogs but cats and other pets as well.
A further reason for using a professional pet sitter when you're away, is that animals that are in close contact with others, especially in a kennel situation, often pick up diseases and parasites.
You should choose a professional you and your pet feel comfortable with. I've been a professional pet sitter for over 5 years and have many references. My best references are the happy pets I take care of.
