Naperville Pet Sitting has been providing quality pet care since 2000.
We are a better alternative to boarding. We come to your home. We care for dogs, cats, birds, fish, rabbits, and other small mammals. All animals in our care must be non-aggressive. We also offer house concierge services and other services. We are not a boarding service nor can we provide overnight care at this time. Please check out our Services page.
Why Hire A Professional Pet Sitter/Dog Walker?
Maybe you need someone to come let your dog out during the day while your at work? Great way for them to relieve themselves and burn off excess energy. Your dog can get social interaction and limit behavioral issues.
Or maybe you need to travel out of town? True you could ask a
friend/neighbor/family member to do this for you but they may not have the experience or reliability that a professional pet sitter has. Boarding is an option but a lot of pets don't do well in that type of environment and can be very stressful for them.
By having a pet sitter come to your home while your away, your pet is more relaxed in their own environment and their routine is kept the same. You can also have the peace of mind that your pet(s) are being well cared for. Also it is a good crime deterrent by having someone come to your home.
Lets not forget about our feline friends. We get lots of calls to care for cats. A lot of cats like companionship and miss their owners when they are away. Even if your cat is on the shy side, you want to make sure they have plenty of food, water, and a clean litter box.
When would boarding be a better option for your pet?
Having a pet sitter come to you home in most cases is a much better option for your pet unless the following circumstances apply:
- Any pet that requires care 24/7 or more medical care then average. We can give pills and insulin injections. Any more then that, its probably best to have your pet boarded at a vet's office.
- Pets that have shown any type of aggression towards people, for whatever reason. Some pets are perfectly fine when their owner is around. Then a stranger enters the home without owner present and they become protective of their home. Seen this not only with dogs but cats as well. If you feel your pet will act in this way, you can first do a trial run with pet sitter before you go on vacation. It may be best to have them boarded.
- Pets that are highly destructive when left alone. Though you may be able to keep them confined to a room in your home or a crate.
If you are unsure whether your pet will do well with a pet sitter or about boarding them, we can give you suggestions at initial meet and greet. Please don't be offended if pet sitter declines to care for your pet. Safety for pet sitter and your pets always comes first.
