There is no doubt that a pet is a huge responsibility. Of course, the love and companionship you receive from your pet, most likely is much more important that what he asks from you. He’s part of your family and when you travel, safe secure accommodations must be made for him. He’ll be missing you as much, or more, than you’ll be missing him and you’ll want to know he’s receiving the best of care while you’re gone. There are many different options for Pet Sitting in Manhattan and it’s up to you to determine what is best for your pup.

Some people, and some dogs, prefer to have a person come to their home to take care of the pets. The advantage of this type care is that the animal stays in their own familiar surroundings. Of course, the dog is usually alone for most of the day and only gets limited interaction with a human a couple times a day when someone comes to feed and walk him. The dog may be confused that you’ve not come home when it gets dark. Some may suffer anxiety and act out destructively, while others may feel comforted by the smells and sounds of home, even though they are alone.

A different Pet Sitting option is taking your dog to a boarding facility. Some facilities are almost like taking your dog to a specialized hotel. Only the best will do. The dogs have separate rooms for sleep and relaxation, they have play time with other dogs, if they enjoy the interaction, they’re fed their own food and have personal one on one time with a human to play and spend time with them each day. If your dog can handle being out of his environment well, this option will keep him occupied and busy each day. Plus, because he is around people, if any medical problems arise, someone is there to recognize it right away.

Of course, there are advantages and disadvantages to each type of Pet Sitting facility in Manhattan. You’ll have to weigh the options and choose what will work best for your pup. You know your dog best and what will work well for him. It’s a good idea, before an extended trip, to try out the option for a night to see how he does. If all goes well, you go relax and enjoy your trip. Visit NY Tails for more details.
