Some dogs and cats can be traumatized, catch kennel cough or infections if left in a kennel. Mind you, there are some excellent kennels, which provide top-notch care and clean cages but there is nothing better than a service that permits your pet to stay in his own home where he feels secure and comfortable.
Dog walking services have been available in many American cities for the busy urban dweller for many years. It is a comparatively new phenomenon in Canada and a very recent one in the smaller cities and towns. Approximately fifteen years ago, fewer than twenty percent of the people in the smaller locations knew that this service was available. That figure is closer to fifty percent now.
Typically, the walkers take several or individual dogs for walks on the streets or parks in the neighborhood. Some transport them to leash- free dog parks and let them run with other dogs.
For longer absences of the owner, such as holidays, a few pet care businesses provide a live in service. They will provide a mature adult to live in the home with the pets while the owner is away. Not only does your pet stay in an environment with which he is comfortable but also an added bonus is that security is provided for your home.
Another service which some pet care businesses provide is security checks of the house while the owner is away and no animals are involved. On the average, the house is visited every three days. Insurance companies love this, especially in the winter where there is the chance of water pipes freezing.
There are some important questions you should ask before hiring a pet care business:
- Are you bonded and insured?
- Do you have proof of your bond and insurance?
- How long have you been in service?
- Do you have references?
- Do you meet the owners and pet prior to the assignment?
- Is there a contract to be signed?
There are several ways to find pet care businesses: Yellow Pages in the telephone book, YellowPages .ca (look under pet care), bulletin boards in pet supply stores, www.petsit.com and www.acpsn.com

As a Reiki Master, People & Pet Therapist, Spiritual Life Coach, Radio Host, Motivational Speaker and Author, I am here to help you if you are looking for positive change in your life and in your pet’s life.
Because I have endured serious illness, abuse, divorce and near death, I made a decision to soar above it all and have embraced the passion of helping others BE INSPIRED.
Using Reiki, I communicate with you through hands-on healing and distant healing techniques. Coaching sessions are scheduled over the phone to talk through the healing issues. I also use these hands-on techniques for your pets and transmit messages from your pet back to you through animal communication. Lost a pet or loved one? I can channel healing messages to you from them. And I teach you how you can do it too!
