New Pet Sitting Service – Available Now
Knowle Dog Walker now offers a new pet sitting service of overnight stays in the client’s house looking after your beloved pets in their own familiar environment. Aimed primarily at dog owners who may be going away perhaps on holiday or with work, this service is available on a per 24hr basis and ensures that your dog is looked after, walked, plants watered, post taken in and most importantly you will have peace of mind that your home and pets are taken care of whilst you are away.
The details of the service can be found on our Pet Sitting page.
Pet Sitting – Industry Changes
In recent months there have been a number of regulation changes that have come into force which have impacted on dog boarders. New restrictions including ensuring each dog has their own separate room and a huge increase in licence fees means that some businesses are either being forced to close or to reduce capacity. A number of local businesses have already felt the impact of these changes and supply, especially in the short term, will be reduced. The alternative to dog boarding are pet sitting services carried out in the client’s home which do not face the same level of regulations. This is a new service being provided by Knowle Dog Walker that we expect will grow in popularity in the near future given the shortage of supply in local dog boarding.
The Benefits of Pet Sitting Over Kennels & Dog Boarding
For some the benefit of ensuring that your home is looked after and your pet is cared for on a 1-2-1 basis is priceless. All pets like familiarity and the benefit of keeping your dog’s routine the same is an important one. A dog in their own home will usually feel more comfortable than being away in someone else’s home or in the kennels.
Kennels can come in a variety of standards and even though this can prove cost effective I’m sure most will agree that a dog in their own home with their own personal carer is a happier dog than one kept shut away in a kennel for extended periods of time. Some things are worth paying a little extra for.
