I always like to inform Pet Parents the importance of finding a Professional Pet Sitter to take care of your dog while you are away.
I recently read two articles where Pet Parents either utilized a teenager to care for their pet or Rover where people advertise just as a hobby and no insurance for both. Neither of these caretakers” had true experience in caring for animals. Loving Animals , while is great, is not a qualification for caring for animals. This story I have here comes from viralnova.com. Read to find out what happened to this Pet Parents beloved pet.
Before going away on a holiday at Christmas, this family decided to board their 3 year-old Shar Pei Akayla. Akayla’s dad used Rover.com to find a family to watch her. The website claims to be a mediator that will put you in contact with safe homes to care for your dog while you are away. “No more lonely cages, just happy homes full of love!”
The couple found a dog sitter with positive reviews. She was advertising herself as looking to start a professional dog-boarding business. On December 24th, Akayla was dropped off at the woman’s home.
Putting the well-being of a loved one in the hands of another person is always frightening, but to know that something went terribly wrong for Akayla would have been terrifying for this family. Thank goodness she survived the vicious mauling and was able to recover.
If you ever use a dog sitter, do your research. Websites like Rover.com may have reviews, but you’re giving away precious cargo. Be careful! Please share this article with others so they can be cautioned.
