Shorewood Pet Sitter
Many of you who are looking for a pet sitter in Shorewood or a cat sitter in Shorewood have gone to Google and typed in these keywords and found paid ads at the top of your page.
I bet the first thing that popped up was Rover.com? And, I bet it also caught your eye enough to click on the link, do a little investigation, and think to yourself-this is a viable solution for a dog walker in Shorewood or a pet sitter in Shorewood?
Not so fast, please. While you can do anything in the world these days on an app or online, finding a reputable pet sitter or dog walker may not be one of them.
Why? Because you are not ordering a pizza here. You are carefully choosing an individual or a company who you are handing over the keys to your home, or even more, dropping your beloved pet off at their home. What do you know about them versus a couple of reviews and a cute photo of, I bet, them loving a cute cat, kitten, puppy or dog?
Things to look for when hiring a professional pet sitting service in Shorewood. I call it the 3 R’s!
Let’s start with reputation. How long has this person been caring for animals, been in business, what is their training as a professional dog walker or pet sitter? Who actually wrote the reviews-friends, family or co-workers so they could get their business started? Do they have insurance, bonding, pet first aid skills and can all these things be documented? Are you able to see their criminal background check, DMV record, drug test results?
Then, reliability. Will they show up when they say they are going to? What is their backup plan if they were to get into a car accident, have a family emergency? Who is their back up plan, and what do you know about the back-up person and their skill level and level of integrity? People, you are leaving your beloved pets at their homes or giving them the keys to yours. Who knows what will be going on there and how many other dogs or cats will be in the house-and what about their temperaments?
Responsiveness. If you don’t hear from them, you have to go through the Rover website. And if they have an issue, there is a 24-hour hotline, but what if they lose the key? How will a call center in who-knows-where, CA help you? At Wisconsin Pet Care we call back immediately, always have a manager on duty and will answer your questions and concerns as quickly as possible. When you are worried about your pets, minutes feel like hours and hours feel like days. I know, I’ve been there.

Dog Walking in Shorewood and Milwaukee
Pet obesity for dogs is a growing problem. As professional dog walkers and pet sitters we see it all the time. Sadly, being overweight takes years off of your dogs’ life and life out of your dogs’ years. There is a simple solution getting the extra pounds off your dog:
- Dog Food portions. The guideline on the bag doesn’t necessarily reflect what you should be giving your dog-it suggest what you should be giving your dog. If you dog is active and walks 5 miles a day, or is your jogging companion, then the suggestion on the bag is a good one.
- Go for a dog walk. Dogs need the mental stimulation of a dog walk-its not just about exercise-it also incorporates dog training, canine nose work and seeing the outside world. A backyard is great for a potty break but a dog needs to be part of the world as well to be socially adjusted.
- Limit dog treats. If you are feeding your dog endless treats (especially items such as Pupperoni – a WPC NO NO!) and having your dog join you at the table, then you are overfeeding. My veterinarian told me that two potato chips was the equivalent of a hamburger for a dog. Imagine feeding endless snacks…it adds pounds to your pup. Instead, give your dog green beans, carrots and apple slices. They are good and good for your puppy.
Wisconsin Pet Care is available for daily dog walking while you are at your office, as well as pet sitting in your home when you are on a vacation from Shorewood or Milwaukee. We come and give your dog a nice long walk, love and companionship. Dog owners in Southeastern Wisconsin sing our praises and refer to us, and you will too, just as soon as you see our “secret sauce.”
