There are several advantages for using a pet sitter. By coming to your home, a sitter allows your pet to stay in his familiar environment. This helps to reduce stress and prevents exposure to illness from other animals. My favorite advantage is the pet receives individual attention from a caring sitter. Sitting visits follow your pet's normal routine as closely as possible.
In addition to the advantages for your pet, there are also several advantages for you. You do not have to worry about transporting your pet to and from a kennel/vet according to their hours. In addition, the sitter coming to your home can also bring in newspapers, mail, packages and adjust lighting and shades in order to give your home a lived-in look and thus deter crime.
The peace of mind pet sitting gives you knowing your pet and home is being cared for by a professional is invaluable.
