Dog owners always have the best intentions for their dog. They are great in giving plenty of affection, and most owners practise discipline. However, due to the very busy lives we all lead, owners often don’t have the time or capacity to exercise their dog, or perhaps your age or current medical condition doesn’t allow you to walk your dog. Whatever the reason, that’s where Paws On The Move steps in and takes the stress and worry out of your situation.
Without exercise, your dog can experience boredom; this can lead to excessive barking and destructive behaviour such as digging or shredding furniture and furnishings. Dogs become calmer and more balanced by releasing mental and physical energy while walking, with the added benefit of keeping fit. There is an increase in the number of obese dogs and walking is the one of the best ways to combat this problem.
Are you planning a holiday? Not sure who will take care of your pets? Our pet sitting service is for all types of animals, not just dogs and cats. Most pets become very stressed when taken out of their home environment and left with strangers in a kennel or cattery, not to mention the risk of catching a nasty illness while there.
We alleviate the situation by letting your pets stay at home and Paws On The Move will visit them once or twice a day and smother them with cuddles, provide them with some playtime and companionship, and of course feed them.
As part of our service, your sitter will also retrieve your mail, water your plants, take care of the bins and run a security check.
There may be a situation where you need some assistance transporting your pet to a vet appointment, grooming appointment, the airport, doggy day care or even a visit to grandma’s house. We can help you out in transporting your pet safely in a dog/cat crate, which is secured to the car. If you prefer your dog to travel in one of the interior seats, your dog will buckled in with a harness and appropriate seat belt designed for dogs.
The fee charged depends on the time taken to deliver your pet from the pick-up point to its destination; if a delivery home is also required, this can also be arranged. See our prices page for more information.
