Upward Dog Pet Sitting Now Open in Claymont, Delaware
Submitted by: Upward Dog Pet Sitting
(OPENPRESS) July 29, 2012 -- Services provided include dog walking and in-home pet sitting for dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and other small animals. Additional services include pet taxi services and pet waste removal.
"Claymont is a Blueprint Community, and I'm excited to be opening a new business here," said Teresa Rothaar, owner of Upward Dog Pet Sitting. "I look forward to serving the people and pets in my community, and hope to ultimately bring jobs into the area."
While busy professionals have long relied on dog walking services to exercise their pets and provide potty breaks during the day, in-home boarding of dogs, cats and other small animals is growing in popularity as an alternative to using traditional kennel facilities. The experience is more convenient for the owner, minimizes stress to the companion animal, and is usually less expensive as well. In addition to caring for a traveling owner's pet, upon request and at no extra charge, Upward Dog Pet Sitting can also water plants, rotate house lights, open and close blinds, collect newspapers and mail, fill outside bird feeders, and otherwise give clients' homes a "lived-in" look that deters intruders.
Unlike boarding facilities and some other pet sitting services, Upward Dog Pet Sitting does not charge extra on holidays--even major ones, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. Customers are also not charged for administering standard medications, such as pills or vitamins, for late-night or early-morning visits or walks, or for last-minute appointments. "Consumers are very budget-conscious and on the go, especially these days," said Teresa Rothaar. "Upward Dog Pet Sitting caters to the needs of our customers, offering pet sitting services that are reliable, affordable and professional. We treat each and every pet as if they were our own."
Upward Dog Pet Sitting is fully insured and bonded, and Teresa Rothaar is a member of Pet Sitters International and Pet Sitters Associates, LLC.
