Why hire a pet sitter?

When you have to be away from home, for travel or an emergency, and you do not want to leave your pet in a boarding kennel, who takes care of your pet? If, like many pet owners, you ask a friend or neighbor to drop in and pour some food and water in your pet's bowls, is this really sufficient care and attention for your pet? There's a good chance that your friends and neighbors, lacking proper pet-care experience and, having forgotten to show up, will say "Never mind, I will give him double tomorrow." They may also resent frequent requests to look after your pet while you're gone. So what is the solution?

5You want to leave your pet(s) in safe hands where your pet will get:

  • The environment he/she knows best
  • The same diet and routine
  • Relief from traveling to and staying in an unfamiliar place with other animals (such as a boarding kennel)
  • Love, care and attention while you're away

And you will have:

  • Happier friends and neighbors, who are not burdened with the responsibility of your pet(s)
  • The peace of mind that comes from knowing that your pet(s) is being cared for by a professional
  • Someone to bring in your newspaper and mail etc., thereby creating a lived-in look deterring potential burglars
  • Someone who will come to your home so you don't have to drive your pet to a boarding kennel
  • Value added services provided by KritR SitR Professional Pet Care (light grooming, plant watering, and for added security, door/window checks)
