House-sitters can help to keep pets feeling safe at home by maintaining their routines

ROUTINE: Makes a pet feel safe.

ROUTINE: Makes a pet feel safe.

MANY of us will have had pets who love a routine. Breakfast and a fresh drink, the morning walk, following you around the house during the day, sleeping when the sun is hot, and an evening meal all around the same time each day.

Their routine makes them feel safe. It is predictable, their bodies are physically in tune with it. Changing that routine may be fine, but some pets suffer with such fundamental changes.

Having a house-sitter to care for your pets at home helps you minimise any additional stress they might experience in your absence. They settle down knowing that they’ll be fed in the same place at the same time.
