Holiday Pet Sitting Pueblo CO

With the holidays approaching, many travelers will be doing so with their pets along. responsible pet care means following a few rules to ensure the entire
family gets to enjoy the Thanksgiving and Christmas trips out of town. Safe pet transportation is essential.
One of the most important things a pet owner can do is to restrain pets when traveling in anautomobile.  This not only keeps the pet from distracting the driver, but protects them from injury in the case of a sudden impact. Never let your pet ride in your lap or in the
passenger seat. Air bags can be deadly to a dog orcat. Never allow your dog to ride in the back of an open pickup. A large unrestrained pet, like an unrestrained item, can inflict serious injury to both driver and passengers. A special secure harness designed for
dogs or a secured kennel for either a dog or cat is very safest way for them to ride along.
Plan on frequent stops for feeding and watering and be sure you take a few minutes for dog walking. If you’re traveling with a cat, stop for some human interaction time.Pets get bored and anxious just like kids on a road trip. Just the sound of your voice will be a comfort to them.
Remember, if you are going out of town for any length of time, you can always call a professional pet sitter to care for your pets in your own home while you are gone.

Why Choose In Home Pet Care?

Although there are many fine boarding kennels in southern Colorado, we find that pets tend to thrive much better in their own homes.
Pets who are used to spending most of their time at home may become anxious when they are in an unfamiliar place with unfamiliar people, scents, and sounds. A change in daily routine may cause undue stress to a nervous pet. He may refuse to eat or play while he is boarded.

A boarding kennel may expose your pet to microorganisms that cause health problems.

When you choose In Home Pet Care, a pet sitter can visit your home several times each day and again in the evening. Your pets surroundings and routine stay the same. He feels safe and comfortable and can still enjoy human interaction and exercise.

In addition, your property will not appear dark and empty while you are gone, giving you the added benefit of home security.
