Pet Boarding Versus Pet Sitting
Benefits of Pet Boarding
Opportunities for frequent socialization.
A boarding facility may offer all-day socialization that some dogs may enjoy. Dog day camps can be a low cost way to give your dog some exercise while you're at work. But if your dog is too aggressive or the staff is not well trained in handling high energy dogs, your pet may be removed from camp and kept isolated, so choose your boarding facility wisely.
24 hour round the clock care.
Most boarding facilities are staffed 24 hours a day, with at least one person covering the overnight shift. Pet sitters often visit at intervals during the day, but some offer overnight stays as well.
If your pet requires 24 hour care due to medical concerns, boarding your pet at a local vet's office may be the best choice. If you're looking for a great vet, we recommend Town Center Animal Hospital. Loving Touch has worked with many vets over the years, and Dr. Brooks and staff at Town Center are the best in the business.
Lower cost for single pets.
For families with only one pet, a boarding facility may be less expensive than the cost of a personal pet sitter. But keep in mind you must also drop your dog off and pick them up, which costs you time and gas money.
Loving Touch offers a free Meet & Greet.
We'd love the chance to get to know your pet. Our free Meet & Greet allows you to get to know your pet sitter, and vice versa, before any services begin. Give us a call today at (702) 715-4071 to schedule an appointment or to learn more.
