Your pets are part of your family, and as such they deserve the best. Many times moving them to the loud, unfriendly environment of a traditional boarding kennel can cause more harm than good especially if they are elderly or have health issues. Pets often come back with diarrhea, thinner from not eating, or just plain full of anxiety. And wait until you have to go out of town again… Good luck finding them to get them in the car next time even if they are only going to the groomer!
Pets (and people) are most comfortable and thrive in the environment they’ve come to know as their own, with their own familiar smells, sights, visitors, and routines. No one knows this better than a pet parent who has to chase their furry friend around the house in an effort to get ready to catch a plane, train, or bus. And what boarding kennel takes snakes, hamsters, ferrets, Chinchillas, fish, pigs, horses, or birds?
The alternative... Professional In-Home Pet Care and Dog Walking services. No longer will you have to spend 10 minutes rounding up your pet to corral them in a crate, another 30 to drive them to the vet, and another 30 minutes to get back to the house to grab your packed bags to head to your destination.
Great news! Choices Pet Sitters has provided professionally insured and bonded in-home pet care and farm sitting for households and mini-farms in Pickens and upper North Cherokee Counties in Georgia since 2005. For years our specialty in dealing with challenging dogs, shy cats, and mini-farms has made us a staple service for pet owners in the area that want a higher level of care for their pets. With professional memberships in Pet Sitters International, Professional United Pet Sitters, and The Humane Society of the United States we strive to be more than just your average pet care provider with continuing education and training. Our attention to detail is strong because we believe that each animal has a unique personality and needs that go beyond just providing basic food and water.
Our pet sitters follow your pet's daily routines, taking care of their dietary, health, and companionship needs, while keeping your pet in the comfortable environment that he or she is accustomed to being in each day. Services are customized to your pets needs as much as possible including mid-day walks for a new puppy, elderly dog, or rambunctious teen-aged dog that just needs a little attention and potty break. Rates are based on the number and types of pets you have as well as your location from Hwy 515 in Jasper.
Set up your “Meet and Greet” with Choices Pet Sitters to get to know us and so we can get you know you and your pet care needs. After that, let us be there for your pets while you are on vacation, going to a trade show, welcoming a new arrival in the hospital, or whenever the occasion has you away from home. We’ll come to you to care for your pets, saving you time, decreasing your stress level, and often times saving you money especially if you have more than one pet.
Reservations for pet sitting, farm sitting or house sitting services are suggested, but not always required once you have set up your account. At that point we know what services you require and what special needs your pets have so we are just a phone call away. Call 678-253-PETS (7387) today and have your pet / house sitting or dog walking plans in place for your next time away from home.
We are members of Pet Sitters International, Professional United Pet Sitters Association, and The Humane Society of the United States. Locally we are also members of The Pickens County Sheriff's Office Business Watch Program and several Community Watch Programs.
