5 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Professional Dog Walker or Pet Sitter

Most pet owners desire the best care for their fur babies. Of course they should! Still, many of them hesitate to hire a professional pet care service and end up defaulting to a service like Wag or Rover, or maybe even hiring a neighbor or friend to look after their pets.

We’ve seen too many situations where pet owners end up coming to us after the above decision went wrong, so we decided to create a list of the top 5 reasons why you should hire a professional dog walker or pet sitter.

1. Your pets will receive high-quality care from a professional dog walker.

We believe in providing top-notch service for our clients and their animals. Unlike neighbors or family friends caring for your pets, BarksnPurrs is bonded and insured.

At BarksnPurrs, our pets receive high-quality care that goes beyond the basics. You don’t have to worry about your pets being stuck in cages OR overstimulated from constant activity! While exercise is great, we understand the importance of breaks on your pet’s mental and physical health. That’s what you get with a professional pet care company.

2. Professional dog walkers offer personalized customer service.

We offer a variety of pet care services because we understand that pets are family members. They deserve time and attention, and sometimes pet owners need a little extra help doing that. So, not only can we help with regular exercise or pet sitting, but we can also assist with dropping off at grooming appointments, vet appointments, and run other errands for your pets.

But the service doesn’t stop with actual pet care! We strive for frequent communication and scheduling. As the pet owner, you will be contacted immediately if there are ever any issues. We will work with you 1:1 to create a schedule that will work best for you and your pet.

We share report cards with our clients to give a detailed breakdown of your pet care visit. You’ll know when they were taken for a walk and for how long. We will tell you what they ate, what medications they took, bathroom habits, and confirmation of locking the door when we leave!

3. Pet sitters can offer a more professional experience.

We have medically trained staff on our team that can handle medications (oral and injections). We also know how to handle unplanned or emergency situations. Because of our training, we understand dog behavior and the importance of flexibility when caring for your pet in public or around the neighborhood.

4. You can feel better knowing that your pets are safe when they’re out of your care.

As a pet owner, there will come a time when you have to leave your pet, whether you’re at  work, going out of town, or just busy at home. It can make anyone feels uneasy knowing they’ll have to trust someone else with their pet.

That’s where the importance of a pet sitter comes into play - You’ll know they’ll be in good care! We can provide daily updates on your pets and home while you are away because you deserve to know what they are up to.

We also take our client’s privacy very seriously. We work with pet owners to ensure they feel comfortable leaving their animals in our care. If you want a background check, a 1:1 caretaker, a specific alarm/locked doors system, we will go above and beyond to make those arrangements for you.  

5. It’s more than just a hobby!

There are many people out there that sign up to become dog walkers in order to earn extra income, to be closer to animals, or simply because they’re bored and are looking for a hobby. But, when you hire a professional pet care service, you are hiring a staff that is 100% committed to animal care.

We have dedicated and reliable staff members that love what they do! We started this business because of our love of animals, but we commit to it every day because of our belief in treating animals with the love, care, and professionalism they deserve.
