How many homes do you think will be burglarized in America
this year…try one in every 35 or so!When you consider those numbers, it could send chills up your
spine.When you hire a full-service pet
sitter to take care of your four-legged kids you should also think about the
peace of mind you could derive when someone is checking-up on your castle as

No, not a yo-yo trick, but rather a strategy for your
four-legged best friend.How often your
dog needs to be walked mostly depends on what breed you have and its health
condition and capability.There are many
factors that determine the number of times you should walk your dog every
day.There are some breeds for whom once
a day walks are enough, but some others, especially high-energy ones, require
more walks each day.
Walking is very important because it becomes a physical
daily routine…just like us humans.It
keeps his bones stronger and keeps him from getting bored and chewing things or
exhibiting other destructive behaviors (that might be true of humans as well!).Plus, it is productive that they socialize
with other people and dogs.
You know how important it is to make sure that your dog(s)
has/have plenty of exercise.Now, whom
do you trust?If you live in the
Southern Fox Valley around Aurora, Sugar Grove, etc. you can count on the crew

It is a frightening fact, over 100,000 pets are accidentally poisoned in this country every year. If and when it happens to your four-legged or feathered friend it is imperative that you do not panic and act quickly. It starts with safety first by removing all of the potentially harmful products, plants, and foods from their wandering mouths.
Here are some helpful tips to remember –
1. What did your pet digest and when?
2. How much did they intake?
3. Know the pet’s current weight.
4. What is your pet’s medical history?
These are all important steps to insuring that your pet survives this scary incident.

geriatric critter care.

Wait, wasn’t that an old yo-yo trick?No tricks here, just common sense.Your dog should be walked on an almost daily
basis, and intellectually you know that.The benefits of a canine walk not only benefits their physical
well-being, but also staves off boredom which can lead to bad behavior such as
chewing.So…walk off that excess energy!
How often should a dog be walked?Well, it depends on the breed somewhat.As a general rule it would be nice if your
dog could take a brisk walk twice a day for 15 minutes at a time.You say, hey I have to work all day and come
home to a household that needs looking after.What do I do about my four-legged child’s welfare?

This is true for two-legged creatures and four-legged ones
as well.When your pet is removed from
its natural environment for an extended period it can be traumatic.Is he or she too fearful and socially
unpredictable in a foreign environment and would be better off at home?It is a very important question to ask!
So, why in-home pet sitting?Because the pets are in their own comfortable space and have the
amenities necessary for stress relief.They can’t tell you that verbally, but many of us know how important
familiarity is.Another advantage is the
protection of your home itself.They can
collect newspapers and mail to make your home look occupied.
When you add it all up doesn’t it just make sense to remove
this from your “stress list” before you head out on summer vacation?Call Critter Sitters serving Sugar Grove,
Elburn, and the far Western Suburbs of Chicagoland.Sandy and her team will make your pet feel
right at home because that’s exactly where they are!Give her a call today at (630) 844-9554.

It is easy to say, “I’m a dog lover, or I’m a cat lover, or I really love exotic birds”. Is that really, really in your DNA? Do you think of God’s creatures as miracles who bring joy to the two-legged people in their lives? How committed are you to caring for someone else’s canine, feline, or feathered friend?
Sandy Hafenbrack of Critter Sitters is looking for a few extraordinary people to represent her company in the art of pet care. That entails so many different things such as walking, feeding, playing, etc. But, above all, it means loving that beautiful creature (big or small, young or old) as if it were your own!

One thing about our beloved pets is that they develop habits which stem from YOUR daily routine. They sleep in similar places, eat at somewhat regular times, and (hopefully) sleep when you expect them too. The important thing for a four-legged child is routine. Anything that upsets that upsets the household.
What are your plans for 2018? Will your job take you out of the house more often? Will you be going on vacation(s)? Do you have a sick relative outside of Chicagoland that you wish to visit? Better yet, are you a snowbird who wants to escape winter for a month or so? Every decision you make impacts your pets.
That is where Sandy Hafenbrack and her amazing, loving team of care-givers comes in. Sandy is the owner of Critter Sitters serving Elburn, Sugar Grove, and other areas of Western Suburban Chicago. When we say that she and her staff treat your loved ones with the same care you would we may be underestimating their love for all creatures great and small.

You look for compassion and longevity in the pet sitting business.

Oh no, there are dozens of beloved pets both great and small
that need to be looked in on.Cats
certainly come to mind.Just because
your kitty seems like a loner does not mean he or she wants to be left alone
for days.To a cat, a clean litter box
is like a clean bathroom to us, so why subject her to that?
Beyond that there are exotic birds that live for decades and
should not be left to sit by themselves for days on end.There are hamsters, guinea pigs, bearded
dragons (cute as heck in their own way!), snakes, etc.Any and all mammals and reptiles need looking
after if you are gone for more than a day or two.
Enter Critter Sitters.Sandy and her amazing staff really do care for all creatures great and
small and know how important they are to your family structure.Monty Python had a cute skit back in a day

cat!”.Let your pets enjoy the comforts
of their home while you are gone.Call
