When you’re contemplating what to do with Fido and Fluffy while you’re at work or out of town, it can be tempting to ask a friend or family member to care for your pet, or hire the neighborhood teen to look in on and play with your furry friend. But, there are drawbacks to that method, and for some pet owners, it can be stressful. It doesn’t have to be though, if you hire Raleigh Pawz as your professional pet sitter or dog walker. We are committed to ensuring that your pet is healthy and happy when you can’t be there.

We believe that Raleigh Pawz’ pet sitting and dog walking services can help you keep your peace of mind and take the guilt away of leaving Fido or Fluffy at home. Here are five benefits to hiring a professional pet sitter or dog walker.

Five Advantages to Hiring a Professional Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Company

  1.       Professionals are reliable.

When you hire a professional pet sitter or dog walker, you should know and feel confident that your sitter will show up during the time frame agreed upon, every time they are supposed to. You may not get the same stability if you choose not to use a professional. You’ll have peace of mind and confidence that the Raleigh Pawz team won’t cancel on you at the last minute! Our team is ready and available.    

  1.       A professional pet sitter and dog walker is insured.

Insurance is meant to protect the client (that’s you!) from issues that might arise when your pet is with a pet sitter or dog walker. As a general liability policy, it often covers bills that arise from unexpected pet medical emergencies that come up when your pet is in the care of the sitter, like if your dog gets hurt during a walk, for example.

  1.       A professional is bonded.

Bonding is another type of coverage that is meant to protect you if you hire a dog walker and find that something has gone missing after a visit. This bond typically pays out if someone is convicted of stealing in a court of law.

  1.       A dog walking service has Pet First Aid and CPR certified staff members.

When you leave your pet in the care of someone else, there’s often a worry that something might happen. Employing the services of a professional pet sitting and dog walking service means that you don’t have to worry, because they have staff members who are certified in Pet First Aid and CPR. These employees have learned to spot signs of medical emergencies and know what they should do before they get to the veterinarian’s office.

  1.       A professional service lets you schedule whenever services are needed.

Whether you know ahead of time that you’re going to be out of town and need someone to spend some time with your pet or there’s a last minute trip that has come up, you can request service from Raleigh Pawz anytime. We are open year-round, including all major holidays.

At Raleigh Pawz, making sure your pets are healthy and happy is our business. Whether you’re looking for someone to get your pup out for a midday walk, or you need a pet sitter for a last minute trip, we have your pet’s back. Schedule your services on our  scheduling page.
