Dog boarding Hobart online pet sitting services-Versus locally owned pet services

Dog boarding Hobart local services compared to on line services a must read for the pet owner looking for dog boarding in Hobart get informed and make the right choices.For you fur child

More and more today we are seeing on line pet sitting/dog minding & dog boarding businesses popping up.

These services offer pet hosting,pet minding and pet walking services are operated from another state & sometimes another country

So I was wondering if we did a comparison on local businesses versus the online services.     So we put them to the test.A couple of my friends joined as sitters who by the way have no pets and not considering to get some any time soon,as they work long hours and feel they do not have the time very smart.

So when they joined a couple of these online businesses they told these companies.               They were home all day (Lie)                                                                                                             They also said they had properties with yards,they lived in units another (lie)                   They sent in pictures of friends yards and even mine.(lie)                                                            They sent pictures of them with friends pets claiming to be pets they have minded before or there own another (lie)                                                                                                             But these business don’t know that do they you are only an online personna to them,so they take what you say as truth but they don’t really know that do they,how could they?     They claim to screen their sitters how do they do this then if they are from are not even in this state or country for that matter.                                                                                           These friends also decided to test their support service.They called up to ask what to do in a situation & find out more info it took 24hours and up to 36 hours to get a reply.Were is the support in that?If it is an emergency you want support asap.                                                Not only that we have gone on line and trolled these sights sitters &  noticed many people we did not put on our books that we had interviewed before,as we felt that they were not the right fit to care for pets and a little skeptical as well as their yards were not secure enough and we pointed out a couple of places that needed to be fixed up before they would be considered,they got a little angry and argumentative on the point.                                       These people are on their websites as pet carers now don’t get me wrong but I was shocked and really thinking that this is just accidents waiting to happen.

Local pet sitting company

I operate a Pet sitting business locally operated called Kimberly’s Pet Taxi and Pet Services.The services we offer. Home stays dog boarding,pet minding,dog walking and house sitting service as well as a pet taxi.

We do screen our sitters we interview them personally in their homes.                                        We inspect their yards to make sure that they are safe and secure.                                           We have managers & myself available 24/7 to offer advice and back up if needed.                  We personally train our sitters in pets first aid and dog behavior as well as the safest way to walk a dog.                                                                                                                                          We hold an annual pets first aid refresher along with tips and new strategies on making you and you Paw guest feel comfortable faster,as well as OH&S procedures on how to keep you & your paw guest safest.                                                                                                            We also do annual yard and home inspections to make sure every thing is still up to standard.                                                                                                                                                 Our sitters attend dog behavior seminars yearly to keep us up to date on any tips or strategies that may help our sitters and paw guests so every thing is how it should be.                                                             We fully insure the pets in our care.

Things to take into consideration when finding or wanting to be a dog minder.It is not easy and sometimes very hard.Dogs will wee,poop spew and chew up your stuff they will dig up your yard.Dogs behave differently in another environment than their own and will do things they would not do in their own homes.

I am a dog minder & also board dogs myself and I think how can you pick the best dog minders if you really don’t know what it is like to care for some one else’s dog yourself.         To operate a business or have great minders they need to know their subject.                          Your sitters need to know this and be very stable people with no anger issues at all.            A sitter must never hit a dog for doing wrong throw it outside and leave it there all day & night as punishment.We tell our sitters if a dog is too much or does your head in or making you angry to call us asap and we will remove the dog and put with a bomb proof sitter.    We also tell them not to feel shame in this as we would prefer them to do this and it shows you care about the dog and they are being responsible.We will not punish the sitter who does this as sometimes a dog will act differently with different sitters and situations.

Bomb proof  sitters

To find a bomb proof sitter is like finding gold and those sitters need to be praised & rewarded.                                                                                                                                             I give my sitters a nice break in a holiday cottage on Bruny Island yearly for free as well as take them out a couple of times a year for a lovely lunch or meal.                                               As well as given a Christmas gift bag yearly.                                                                                   Lets face it these people are your business and you look after your business & clients don’t you?                                                                                                                                                  The sitters are actually looking after your clients babies and their precious family member you as an owner need to feel safe and secure and have that peace of mind who you are leaving your dogs or pets with.

So there you go a little insight on the numerous on line pet care services to the locally operated business.
