How pet sitting service fits you & your pet's needs

Home is always the best place for pets

From pet’s perspective, home represents safety and relaxation. There are familiar scents, decorations, and memories which provide them with a sense of security. Compared to traditional pet boarding in which the pet is physically being transported to an unknown place, pet sitting service eliminates the stress & health risk of your pets. Pet Sitting service is further found to be favoured if your pet’s personality is timid or less adaptive.

Pets are more relaxed to stay at home and cared by pet sitter.

FAQs about pet sitting service

Why should you choose pet sitting service for your furry kids?

Our pet sitting service fits 99 % of household pets’ needs. Researches indicated that pet sitting service can greatly reduce animal’s psychological stress when comparing with boarding because they do not need to be transported to another unfamiliar place and therefore eliminating the feeling of being abandoned or overwhelmed. Furthermore, living at own home can highly reduce the risk of your pet being infected by other unknown animals, it’s especially true for senior pets and pets with vulnerable immune system. Additionally, pets with timid or less accommodating personality is advised to take advantage of home care service. However, we advise that for those pets who are suffering from serious illness e.g. heart attack, which requires constant monitor should opt for vet boarding service.

Questions For Dog Training

What method will you use to train my dog?

Different dogs require different training strategies. First, dog trainer will figure out the root cause of the problem. Then, trainer will introduce appropriate training methods, tools and activities which suit your dogs to engage. In the process, dog psychology will be explained to facilitate the communication between the owner and the dog.

Would my dog feel upset for training?

All methods used in our lessons are derived from scientific research and proven to be safe and harmless to dogs. We adopt positive reinforcement method which physical punishment is forbidden. We aim to shape a balanced and satisfied dog by fulfilling their true needs. We can’t guarantee the dog is extremely happy in the learning process as learning is about stepping out of the comfort zone. But one thing is sure, the dog is absolutely unhappy when he or she is having the behavioural problem. In the long run, dog training is beneficial to you and your dog’s relationship.

How can you guarantee my dog's behaviour will be improved and long lasting?

To what degree the problem can be improved and sustained depending on many factors, such as the dog’s learning ability, the frequency of practicing the assigned exercises and the owner’s willingness to change. Dog trainer will display all necessary skills that should be used to rehabilitate the dog in different circumstances and teach you how to do it. Through ongoing practice, we believed that the problem can be alleviated gradually.

How many lessons are required to reach the training target?

Dog trainer will evaluate your dog’s situation to decide how many lessons are required. The number of lessons can be adjusted according to the actual progress. Our basic plan is 3 lessons in which the first lesson will scrutinise the reason of the problem, explain the methods to be used, demonstrate and teach you how to use the correct tools & methods. The second lesson will be focusing on tackling the problem and consolidating the owner’s skill. The third lesson will be strengthening the leadership position of the owner and further following up of the problem. Typically, the lesson will be carried out on a weekly basis. For every week, owner can do the given exercise & activity with your dog according to the dog trainer’s instruction and send a video for the dog trainer to follow up the situation. Of course, every case is unique, for those serious case which owner needs support tremendously, the class will be held more frequently.

What should I prepare for the dog training lesson?

Basically, the dog trainer will bring all the necessary tools to the lessons. Since every dog is unique, we advise client to prepare attractive food and toy that your dog is responsive to. Once the dog is displaying ideal behaviour, reward will be given. If you do not know what your dog’s favourite reward is, please buy a few kinds of toys and treats and do the trial and error test. Soon, you will get the answer. Reward can be any form. It can also be a verbal praise or even a massage from your hand. Therefore, attractive toys and foods are just the basic. You can prepare anything that your dog likes but most importantly, it is safe and harmless.

When and where are the class held?

The class will be held at the mutually agreed time slot. The training class takes place at where the dog lives and where the problems occur. We believe this is the most effective and direct way to solve the problem.

I am busy and can't attend the lesson, can I pass the dog to the dog trainer for training?

Many times, we had heard owners complaining of their dogs only listen to my wife or my husband, but not me. It is because a dog is reacting to a human’s attitude, energy and behaviour, not because of who you are. In other words, it is very crucial for the owner to attend the class and learn how to treat their dog correctly. If you do not join the class, you will not gain the skill to send the right message to your dog. As a result, the dog will not behave unless the trainer is here. Perhaps you are now wondering it’s like training the owner more than the dog. Yes, you are right. Your dog will be fine if you are a well-trained dog owner.

Does everyone in the family need to attend the class?

We do not require all family members to join all the lessons but we do encourage every family member to participate in the class to strive for the optimal result. Since the golden rule in dog training is consistency, we hope all family members are on the same page and treat the dog in the same way. Otherwise, it will end up with confusing the dog and he or she will only listen to some family members but not all.
