For most pets, their owner going out for a short while doesn’t normally cause a problem, as they know that they will return home soon. However, bring your suitcase into the equation and your dog will begin to worry and panic, as they often associate the sight of the suitcase with a visit to the cattery or dog kennels, and a longer period of separation. In actual fact, they can also suffer from stress with symptoms such as kennel cough, gnawing, loss of appetite and pining.
Allow your pet to stay in familiar surroundings
The best and kindest arrangement you can make for your dogs while you are away from home on business, on holiday, or even for a stay in the hospital, is to allow them to remain at home in their familiar surroundings and following their typical routines and be cared for by an experienced house and dog sitter. If you have an elderly dog, or if your pet doesn’t get on well with other animals, or perhaps you are a multi-pet household, your ideal solution is to use a live-in or a daily pet sitter. You also have the added advantage of knowing that you have additional home security, with someone staying in or visiting your home while you are away.
The live-in pet sitters at Finchley Dog Walker are mature professionals, experienced, trustworthy pet owners, so you can enjoy your break or holiday, knowing that both your property and your pets are in very safe hands.
