K9 Walkers provides daily home visits to care for pets staying in the comfort of their own homes. This allows pets to stay in familiar surroundings and receive personalised one on one attention.
Pet sitting is an excellent alternative to boarding pets and in many cases is less stressful for the pet and the client. It is also the perfect option for pets that cannot be boarded or for homes with multiple animals. If a pet is not de-sexed or up to date with vaccinations they may not be suitable candidates for boarding. Having a pet stay at home can also minimise exposure to other animals and illness.
We offer 20, 30, 40 & 60 minute pet sitting visits and all visits 30 minutes or longer include a dog walk or playtime.
When pets are at home, the client does not have to organise to drop off and collect pets during a certain time period. The client can leave and return when it suits them.
Home security is increased when a dog is at home and also with our regular visits. K9 Walkers can visit once or more each day and will deliver a service that best meets the requirements of the client and the pets in our care. We can send text message updates to the client as required.
Clients use our pet sitting services when they go away on holidays, if they are going to be late home from work or are going to be out all day.
We will also ensure it appears someone is still living at the client’s home. Under our care, the home will not display the tell tale signs of the owners being away, such as the letterbox filling up with mail and newspapers. The client does not need to come home to dead pot plants or a full, smelly wheelie bin because garbage night was missed whilst they were away.
We can follow client instructions and meet their requirements, not just what they feel comfortable asking the neighbours to do!
