Pet Care Seasonal Tips - Summer 2017

As recommended by: the American Veterinary Medical Association

  • Never leave your dog in the car.  
  • ​Make sure that your dog has unlimited access to fresh water.
  • ​Make sure your dog has access to shade when outside.
  • ​Take walks during the cooler hours of the day
  • ​When walking, try to stay off hot surfaces (such as asphalt) because it can burn your dogs feet.
  • ​If you think it's hot outside, its even hotter for your pet. Make sure your pet has a means of cooling off.
  • ​Keep your dog free of external parasites (fleas, ticks) and heartworms (internal parasite) – consult your veterinarian about the best product for your pet
  • ​​Consider clipping or shaving dogs with long coats (talk to your veterinarian first to see if it's appropriate for your pet), and apply sunscreen to your dog's skin if she or he has a thin coat.

Why put your pet in a unfamiliar boarding facility, when an in-home pet sitter can provide care in the comfort of their own home?  Many pets even develop stress related issues while in a pet boarding facility. By working with an in-home pet sitter, this means you can enjoy your travels more by worrying about your pets less. Your pet sitter will keep you updated by sending you a report after every visit. To learn more about our pet sitting services, please visit ourPet Services page.

We also offer dog walking or our popular walk n' train.  Both of these dog walking options will provide excellent physical and mental stimulation for your dog. A dog with adequate exercise and stimulation tends to have fewer behavioral issues and makes for a much better companion.  Your dog walker will update you after each visit by sending a report to your email (or text message if you prefer).  Visit our Dog Walking page for more information on the services our dog walkers provide.
