Professional Pet Sitters and Walkers vs. Rover and Wag Apps
Updated: Aug 31
Pet care apps like Wag and Rover are everywhere on social media. When selecting a pet sitter, it can seem like a convenient option. Though the convenience of booking a walk through an app is easy enough, dog walking and pet sitting should not be something on demand.
Pet walking and sitting should be based on a nurtured, professional relationship with a trustworthy and qualified person. Having a stranger show up to your house to take care of your pet without having met you before can be an unsettling prospect. As a client, opening yourself up to an unqualified walker could bring about many issues, especially if you have a rescue pet or a pet with special needs. Anyone can sign up to care for pets on an app, and they do not need any pet experience to do so.
Selecting a pet sitting service with a roster of qualified, independent pet sitters and walkers who meet you and your pets with a thorough interview in advance is imperative. This ensures that you will have an experienced and familiar person working with your beloved pet.
