Pet ownership in the United States is continually on the rise. Currently, 63 percent of all American households have pets. The US pet population includes 73 million dogs, 90 million cats and 16 million birds plus fish, hamsters and other animals. These pets are happiest when they're home, surrounded by familiar sights, smells and sounds. For many years, pet owners have faced a dilemma when they had to be away from home. Only limited care options were available. One choice was boarding at a kennel or vet, another was turning to family, friends, neighbors or a professional boarder. These solutions were seldom ideal. The new alternative - pet sitting - has changed all that. Today, pet sitters, professional pet caregivers, look after animals at home, while their owner is away. Pet sitting has taken the anxiety out of leaving a pet behind, which is why it is one of the nation's fastest growing industries. Pet sitting offers the best of all worlds - for pets and their owners. Trauma is minimized. Owners need not go through the ordeal of transporting unhappy pets and worrying that they might be exposed to other animals' illnesses. Animals get to stay in their familiar environment, maintain their diet and exercise routine and are attended to by caring professionals Professional pet sitting allows owners to confidently leave their pets home, knowing that they'll receive the love and care they so rightly deserve.
