The Comeback is Always Greater Than the Setback!

We hope all pet parents, families and four legged friends are doing well! We know this year has not been the 2020 we were all hoping for but we are in this together and we will get through this together.  We want to THANK all of our wonderful clients who supported us through the pandemic, to be honest it was bleak at times, but at The Pet Lady we are blessed and thankful for YOU! We continue to offer pet sitting excellence and always strive to be a step above in care and love for your pet.
As the country continues to reopen, we are here to support you and as always your pets.  This can be a confusing and stressful time for pets, just as they may have been confused as to why we were home all the time, as we return to normal schedules confusion and separation anxiety can set in. If you know you will be returning to work, consider starting daily walks a week or two prior to returning.  This can help reduce stress on your pet and get them used to seeing their sitter for walks or visits.  Once you return to work, those daily visits will be a great way for your pet to get exercise to de-stress and deter from destructive behaviors.
September is Responsible Dog Ownership Month.  What does it mean to be a responsible dog owner?  It's more than making sure your dog is fed, groomed and let out to potty.  Your dog needs physical and mental stimulation to keep them happy and stress free.  Check out our 6 tips to be a better human for your dog below.
October is National Pet Wellness Month and we're kicking it off with National 
Walk Your Dog Week
(10/1-10/7).  A walk for your dog is not only good for their well being but also for their mental stimulation. Pet wellness starts with nutrition, we all know the saying 'You Are What You Eat", that applies for pets as well.  When selecting food for your pet it's all about ingredients! Making sure your pet gets enough exercise is not only good for them but also helps to control their weight. Be sure you keep a good grooming routine, not just sending your pet for a bath, but also regular brushing, and having a good dental hygiene routine. Most importantly, spend quality time with your pet!

6 Tips to be a Better Human for Your Dog
1. Stay up to date on vaccines.  Vaccines help keep your dog from contracting diseases that can be life threatening.
2. Dog proof your house.  It is important to make sure you put away or keep out of reach anything that your dog can get into that can be potentially be a hazard to their health.
3. Exercise.  This can be in the form of walks or play.  It is also a great time to connect with your dog!
4. Make sure they are eating healthy! 
5. Maintain your dogs hygiene.
6. Train your dog.  Although dogs are social by nature, they don't always know how to act.  Training can keep you and your dog safe and happy.
