Frequently Asked Questions
You may be thinking "why would I need a Pet Sitter?" or "I have friends or relatives who can take care of my pets for me at no charge". If you have never used a Professional Pet Sitting Service, you may have questions about how it works. The following FAQ's should answer most of them for you. Please email or call us if you have any questions that are not answered here. Thank you.
Why is in-my-home pet sitting better than a kennel or a boarding facility?
Better" is a subjective description. While most kennels and boarding facilities may work well for your pets, qualified Pet Sitters offer many more positives for you and your pet. Friendly Faces Pet Services not only comes to your pet's home environment and gives them loving and quality care, we also check on your home and can be a deterrent to thieves. By rotating lights, bringing in newspapers, mail and fliers and having a car in your driveway a number of times a day, your home is much safer.
Isn't hiring a pet sitter more complicated than taking my pet to a kennel or boarding facility?
When you take your pet to a kennel or boarding facility, you must take into account the time needed to drive there, the gas used and wear and tear on your vehicle and the hours that the facility is open so that you can pick up your pet before they close for the day. It can also be stressful for both you and your pet when they are dropped off and you leave. Friendly Faces Pet Services comes to your pet's home environment. There is no travel back and forth to another place and no worry about returning home at a certain time. If you will be later than expected, just give us a call as soon as possible and we will continue our service until you return.
