Preparing for Travel

There are so many things to consider when preparing for vacation. Not the least of which is who is going to take care of your pets.  In a time where people will steal your holiday and other packages right off your porch, it is more important than ever to think about a better way to protect pets and home when away.  At Personal Pet and Home Care our team are certified professionals.  Exceptionally careful and exceptionally loving.  Our vehicles are never marked so neighbors and passerbys do not know you are gone unless you tell them.  

After hiring a professional pet sitter, there is a laundry list of items to check off before departing.  Things like stopping routine deliveries, locking windows and doors, exchanging currency if  travelling abroad and more.  We have a handy dandy travel check list below.  Download and print it. Keep a copy on your computer for future vacations and business trips.
