Benefits of Pet Sitting
More than 60% of households in Austin have some kind of pet. Pets are not just dogs and cats anymore! Now, most homes have hamsters, birds, fish, and other exotic pets. A recent study by The American Humane Society found that your pets are happiest when they are at home, surrounded by familiar sights, sounds and smells.
Pet Sitting is the Healthiest Choice
Industry Studies have found that the familiar environment, diet and exercise routine, along with the personalized attention provided by a professional pet sitter makes for the happiest pets. Home dog boarding also eliminates the trauma of being transported and greatly reduces exposure to kennel borne illnesses from other animals. Additionally, the included house sitting services provide a great crime-deterrent.
Pet Sitters are Professionals
In-home pet sitting is a relief to most owners who no longer have to impose on family, friends or have the inconvenience of transporting their pet to and from a kennel. By hiring a professional pet care provider you can have the added peace of mind that all Pet Gals pass a criminal background check, are fully insured, bonded, are Pet First Aid & CPR certified and continually expand their pet care education through The Pet Gal University.
