Dog Boarding vs. Pet Sitting - Charlotte, NCIn most households, the pet is more than just a member of the family. The joy and companionship the family pet provides is a unique bond rarely found in other relationships. Although we would like to take our pets everywhere we go, it is often impractical. In these times, we look for a viable solution to leave our family pet at home when taking a holiday or vacation.

Hiring a Sitter – A pet sitter can give you peace of mind while providing quality care and companionship for your pet during the times you are away from home. Without the need to remove your pet from the home, pet sitters can temporarily take over in providing the necessities for your animal. Their work allows your pet to maintain their daily routines without disrupting the place where they potty, eat, sleep or take their neighborhood walk.

Better Than Boarding – By leaving your pet at home in their natural environment, you reduce the risk of them becoming exposed to the germs and diseases from other animals residing at a boarding facility. Kennels are often known to be a harboring place for “kennel cough” – a highly contagious respiratory disease that can be found in cats and dogs, caused by bacterium Bordetella Bronchiseptica. Even leaving your pet with a family friend or household with other animals can wreak havoc and increase the stress levels of your pet.

Love and Attention – While it is true your pet may experience a sense of loneliness because the family is not at home, a sitter can often provide your pet lots of love and attention in your absence. When boarding an animal, they are often cage to during the day and only let out to relieve him or herself. Alternatively, your pet sitter will take your pet outside for long walks in the neighborhood, to maintain their routine.

Better Than Friends – A pet sitter eliminates the need to ask your friends and family to take care of your family pet while you are gone. Pet sitters are bonded, and insured in case anything goes wrong, and are highly trained to respond to any type of emergency in your home, with your pet. Being paid to take care of your pet will ensure you that they are getting devotional attention along with their treats, walks, food and water, every day.

Leaving your pet at home with the pet sitter cost significantly less boarding them, and relieves you of the hassle of filling out paperwork, leaving copies of vaccinations and imprisoning your pet in a cage until you return.

At Queen City Pet Sitting, we make it our business to provide quality care for pets and peace of mind for their people. To learn more about how a pet sitter can make your life—and your pet’s—better, contact us today at (704) 608-6733.
