Dog Walking and Pet Sitting in Princeton, Plainsboro, and Monroe
3 reasons your local professional pet sitter is your best pet care option
As many of you are aware, there is a tech revolution that is currently taking place. This is the emergence of apps for your smartphone, that often simplifies things for all of us in our day-to-day life. While apps are awesome, they often detract from local businesses in your community. Along those lines, there are many options out there for pet care, but none offer the most attention to detail or unparalleled customer service quite like your local pet care company (See: Simply Yours Concierge). Of course, there are on-demand dog walking and pet sitting apps such as Wag and Rover, but they aren't quite as personal as a professional pet care company like ours. Here are 3 reasons your local professional pet sitter is your best pet care option...
1. You're able to avoid the middleman
When you employ your local professional pet sitting business, you're able to directly contact the pet sitting business owner and book your services through him (which would be Kyle at Simply Yours Concierge in this instance). It's a very convenient option to have, because you can simply text or email the business owner to inquire about availability for dog walking or pet sitting services. You can also handle payment directly through the business rather than through a third-party site, enabling you to have more flexibility in payment options depending on the business's policies.
2. Your pet care provider will have insurance that is customized to his or her specific business needs
While some online pet sitting apps provide insurance for pet sitting visits booked through their app, it's more feasible to use a local professional pet sitting company that maintains its own pet sitting insurance. It also allows you to ensure that the pet sitter has insurance specific to not only their needs but your needs as well. It's important to note that on some of those online apps, the insurance coverage they have often requires that a large deductible is to be paid by the pet owner should any issues occur. When using your local professional pet sitter, you should absolutely ask for proof of their insurance, along with a confirmation that their insurance has a policy that is customized for pet sitting and dog walking. This will ensure that your pet and your home are covered should any accidents occur during the course of the pet sitting.
3. You put more money into your local economy
While online apps and other pet sitter websites offer convenient payment options, most sites and apps keep portions of the payment. This only allows the pet sitter to be able to keep around 80% of what the client pays with 20% going to the website. Working directly with a local professional pet sitting company allows you to completely contribute towards your local economy. Your entire payment for pet sitting and dog walking services will go directly to a local business owner, who in turn is likely a supporter of other local businesses.
