When it comes to finding a company to provide a service, responsible shoppers always do their research. Pet care services are no different. Dog training, dog walking, and pet sitting are all services that are best left to the professionals. Many people wonder “how hard could it be?” That’s one way to look at it – but a more responsible way to look at it is – will this person be able to handle when the unexpected occurs? Dog owners are aware of the phenomena known as “separation anxiety”.
Often, pet owners through this through tales from friends, family, and neighbors who have watched their furry friends while they were out of town. This feeling in dogs often relates to things they wouldn’t normally do, or haven’t done in years. Things, like chewing random objects, not eating when presented with food, and not using the bathroom on walks, are all symptoms of separation anxiety. It goes without saying that chewing random objects is a choking hazard. Additionally, not eating or using the bathroom is simply unhealthy for dogs.
At Giving A Dog A Bone, we’re experts regarding all things dogs – including how to deal with separation anxiety. Learn more about this, and other benefits that hiring a professional pet service provider can bring in this post from the Giving A Dog A Bone Blog.
Pet professionals that are considering separation anxiety in pets before a sitting job always ask something along the lines of “What is something you and your pet do together?” Whether this is simply your pet lazing around on the couch while you watch TV, or playing fetch after a walk, it’s important for them to know. These familiar activities bring dogs a sense of comfort when their owners aren’t around.
