For many of us, our pets are like family. So, in the event that we have to leave them behind while travelling, it’s important to make sure they are well taken care of. In this segment of The Marc and Mandy Show, Mandy chats with Gary Braden from And Away You Go! Pet & Home Sitting Services about the services of pet sitting.
Mandy: When you have to be away from home, you want to make sure that your fur baby is being well taken care of. I have Gary from And Away You Go! Pet & Home Sitting Services. Marc and I have a little fur baby ourselves, and she’s older, she’s a Pomeranian, and I definitely worry when we travel. What are some of the benefits of hiring a professional?
Gary Braden: Well, most pets feel more comfortable when they’re at home in their own environment, and that helps owners relax knowing that someone is coming to their home to look after their little fur babies.
Mandy: Do you find that it helps alleviate some of that separation anxiety?
Gary Braden: Yes, depending on how much the pet is normally left alone.
Mandy: Who can benefit from using pet sitting services?
Gary Braden: Anyone who travels for work or vacation can use our services. We are also used by people who work shift work, emergency service personnel, and people with mobility issues. We’re a licensed business. Everyone who works with me has pet first aid training.
Mandy: Now, I’ve got to ask, just because I’m such a dog lover myself, what’s your favorite part about what you do?
Gary Braden: Well, I love to see the joy on the faces of of the pets when I come in to see them. Seeing their pure joy is great for my mood, but what I love the most is watching a dog that I walk who has anxiety lose some of that anxiety and be more confident in themselves through our communication and contact.
