Your pet will remain in familiar surroundings. Because of this, the stress level of the animal will be low.
Your pet will receive personalized attention on a daily basis. Your pet sitter will try to keep the pet's routines as normal as possible.
Your pet's chances of getting fleas are very low. You will not have to put him/her on a flea repellent program.
Using a pet sitter instead of a kennel means no excess vaccinations are needed, such as shots for feline leukemia and feline infectious peritonitis for cats, bordetella, leptospirosis and parvovirus for dogs.
Your home will be occupied while you are away. Since your mail and newspapers will be picked up daily, it will appear as though your home is being lived in.
You won't have to worry about your plants dying while you are away, as they will be watered as often as is necessary to keep them thriving.
You won't have to worry about dropping your pet off or picking him up. When you get home, you'll be greeted at the door by a very happy animal!
