One of the biggest benefits of dog sitting is that your furry friend stays in the environment they’re most familiar with. This reduces the stress on your pet as they don’t have to adapt to a new environment or routine, with the added bonus of no travel trauma.

The only thing you need to worry about is whether your pet is going to want to leave their beloved Sitter at the end of their fun filled period.
