Back when having a family dog was as all-American as a white picket fence, the common dynamic included a husband who went to work and a mother who stayed home to take care of the house and raise the children. Giving the family dog the care and attention it needed wasn’t nearly as challenging as it is today, when the majority of homes are empty for several hours each day. A family dog is still a great way to teach children how to be responsible pet owners, but if you are struggling to keep your pet happy, you might consider dog sitting services. Here are the benefits involved:
- Happy Dog. Imagine how your dog feels if every time you get home, they face getting reprimanded for a mistake or mess they made. Even a well-behaved dog can run into trouble if they get bored or anxious. If instead they see you are happy to see them, it makes them happier, too!
- Healthy Dog. A dog that doesn’t get regular exercise can not only become overweight, but also develop serious health problems. The regular activity they’d get at a facility offering dog sitting services will lower their risk of arthritis in their senior years and keep them flexible and strong.
- Well-Behaved Dog. Boredom and lack of attention, especially if your dog has separation anxiety or difficulty dealing with thunderstorms, can lead to behavioral problems such as excessive barking and destructive chewing. You can avoid these scenarios with dog sitting services. Your dog will also learn valuable socialization skills, so you can take them out in public with confidence.
