Leave pets in good hands this Holiday Season, Furbaby Pet Care advises
We were recently asked to share our thoughts in an article on the importance of finding a reliable and reputable business/person to look after your beloved furbaby during the holiday season. The biggest thing we suggest is that as a pet owner, you do your own research before booking Saskatoon and area pet-care providers or pet sitters this holiday season and throughout the year. Read more below from our owner Jocelyn.
Domestic overnight travel is expected to grow 2.3% in Canada this year, according to The Conference Board of Canada. Ahead of the busy travel season, Furbaby Pet Care is reminding pet owners that just like savvy travellers do their research before selecting hotels and tourist attractions, they should take a closer look before selecting someone to watch their pets while they’re away.
Furbaby Pet Care which offers Campus and in-home pet-sitting services in Saskatoon, advises pet owners to do their research to ensure they are hiring professional pet sitters for their pet-care needs.
“When it comes to finding pet care, don’t prioritize convenience over quality,” explained Furbaby Pet Care owner Jocelyn Davey-Hawreluik. “Just because you can quickly find and book the services of a pet lover with a profile on a pet-sitting or dog-walking app doesn’t mean you are choosing a qualified pet-care provider.”
“Pet owners should take a closer look to ensure they are hiring not just a pet lover, but a pet lover who is also a true pet-care professional,”
Davey-Hawreluik is a member of Pet Sitters International (PSI), the world’s leading educational association for professional pet sitters and dog walkers.
“It is important pet owners understand that pet sitting is a professional career and professional pet sitters offer peace of mind that other pet-care options cannot,” said PSI President Patti Moran.
PSI advises pet owners to schedule an initial consultation with a potential pet sitter prior to booking services and offers a free Pet Sitter Interview checklist on its website.
With the growth of the professional pet-sitting industry, pet owners don’t have to rely on untrained or unwilling friends, family members or neighbors—or “pet sitters” who have listed their services online but lack the experience, education and insurance needed should a pet emergency or other situations occur.
“For pet owners’ peace of mind, our business is insured, bonded, licensed to do business in Saskatoon, SK and provides client references,” said Davey-Hawreluik. “In our team is also a Certified Professional Pet Sitter®, and all are trained in pet first aid, CPR and Pet Safety.”
