Domesticated furry family members are more than just pets – they are little pieces of our hearts walking around outside of us and keeping our pets happy is a main priority for many a pet owner.
As such, people love them and naturally desire to keep their pets happy and stress-free as possible. It’s an exchange they gladly make, while considering the joy and companionship their pets bring to their lives, but what happens when people have obligations that do not include their pets? When dogs and cats are left idle, they can experience anxiety and boredom leading to mischievous behavior, and even stress related health issues. Pets are used to looking out for and providing companionship to their owners, and while owners are busy working or taking a much-needed break, they need to make sure that they provide a vacation for their pet as well. This helps to ensure the productivity, happiness and peacefulness of all involved.

Keeping Your Pets Happy with the Right Care!
When people cannot be available for their furbabies, they provide alternate care of course, but how do they determine the best option for their pets’ needs? Pets are used to being productive. Whether they are protecting their environment, providing companionship or just being cute and happy, they need to matter to someone and feel that they have a purpose. Whether an owner chooses the option of kenneling, daycare or petsitting in their absence, they should think about how their choice will relate to their pets’ productivity.
Who doesn’t want a happy pet? Having needs met such as rest, water, play and companionship all contribute to a furbabies’ ability to remain content, as well as the environment. Animals left to themselves for too long can wreak havoc, a familiar environment with visits from a trusted care provider allows for pets to not have to be transported or placed in unfamiliar settings. This helps eliminate stress in their owners’ absence.
Finding The RIGHT Care in Order to Keep Your Pet Happy While You Are Away:
- Determine which service is best for you and your furbaby. There are daycare services, kennels and petsitting services all ranging in fees. Understanding your pet’s personality can help you decide on where your pet will be happiest while you are travelling!
- A scheduled interview to acquaint the owner and pet with the care provider helps you AND your pet build rapport with the caretaker.
- Make an educated choice based on that which is important to you (your pet’s happiness and peace of mind, price, location, etc.).
While it is hard to leave pets behind for extended periods of time, it is important to be able to relax and enjoy much needed time away, without feeling related stress for either pets or people. Owners with a responsible plan in place will be able to ensure their pet is as productive, happy and as peaceful as possible while they are away.
Keep your pets happy!
