Some dogs will not allow a stranger into its home and can suffer depression or separation anxiety when its owner isn't around for a long period of time. If your pet, especially dogs (and a youngster!), loves human and animal interaction, then pet boarding is clearly the better choice as some dogs thrive on companionship and stimulation. Many of JomPaw’s boarders have pets of their own and offer a cage-free environment so your dog or cat will easily feel at home.
When is Pet Sitting Better?
A pet sitter is someone who will go to your house, interact, feed, walk and look after your pet. The biggest benefit here is that your pet stays exactly where it is while having a pet sitter keep an eye on him or her.
Because your pet will be staying in the comfort of your home, this will suit older dogs who isn't as mobile, and cats who are usually happy doing its own thing by itself. Your pet will be able to stick to its own routine in familiar surroundings with little interruption as possible. Those with multiple pets will also find it more convenient to have a pet sitter rather than transporting your pets to a boarder. After all, they have a companion pal and wouldn't get as stressed while you are away.
Whatever decision you have made, it's important that your pet is in safe hands. Ask many questions (insurance, experience, etc.) and check out its reviews. Book a service with our boarders and sitters who have been vetted and trained to provide the best care to your furry pet for a peace of mind while you are away this holiday season!
