How Having a Pet Can Reduce Childrens' Stress

Good afternoon!

Today we are sharing an article from Medical News Today on how having a pet in the home, specifically a dog, can help reduce a child's stress.

Vacation Season: Leave Your Pet Sitter Prepared!

Good morning all,

We know that you wish you could bring your pets with you when you travel, but sometimes it just isn't possible. Hiring a professional pet sitter to stay at your home with your pets can help make the time you're away a little less stressful for your pet and help to ease your mind. To make sure everything goes smoothly while you're gone, there are some things you should do to best prepare your sitter for a relaxing stay with your pets, including making a checklist.

Thanks to an article from here are a few tips to help you get started in preparing for your time away from your furry loved ones.

"First, make a folder with some essential safety information for your dog sitter. That way, if an emergency pops up while you're gone, your pet sitter will have all the information she'll need on hand."

"Next, take the time to fill your pet sitter in about your dog's unique characteristics and routines. You know Fido best, so there's no one better to help prepare your sitter on how to care for him correctly."

"You should also make sure you have enough pet supplies to last your four-legged friend the entire length of your trip (and a little longer in case you get held up)."

"Your last step should be to prepare your home for your departure, take care of any safety hazards and spend some one-on-one time with your pooch to get him ready for a few days without you."
