Pet Sitting and Dog Walking in Peoria, AZ-Arizona Part: 1

 In this section I will be discussing important factors that all pet sitters and dog walkersin Peoria, AZ should be well aware of and capable of handling. Though this blog post is about pet sitting and dog walking professionals, this content is also what people seeking their help should know and understand when considering a certain pet sitting or dog walking professional. This information could help you decide which questions to ask your pet sitting or dog walking professional.

Providing pet sitting and dog walking in Peoria, Arizona is unique, in itself. This goes for both pet owners and professional pet caregiver’s. However, for the purpose of this article, I’ll stick to the topic with professionals at the forefront. There are several factors that need to be taken into account when providing pet care in Peoria, Arizona. First to discuss, are the high and low temperatures.

  Given that temperatures can rise to around 120 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer, it is crucial for pet sitters and dog walkers to understand the dangers that come with that. During the summer, most pets should remain in a climate controlled environment with enough drinking-water to keep them comfortable. When your pets are confined in a home, apartment, or car, it is imperative that the mechanism controlling the climate (ex. Air conditioner) is in proper working order. However, if the air conditioner fails at some point during high outside temperatures, it is important to have a plan to keep your client’s pets safe and healthy!

High temperatures can also impact your dog-walking schedule. During the summer, in Peoria, AZ, walking your dog can only be done in early mornings as well as late nights. This is unless your dog uses booties. Though, even with booties, dogs won’t be able to last that long under the Peoria, Arizona summer sun. In contrast Peoria, Arizona’s winters can be quite cold and drop below freezing temperatures. This is important to understand because some animals won’t do well and possibly won’t survive when exposed to these temperatures for long periods of time. Both, the hot and cold temperatures, make it extremely important to make sure to not allow pets to wander off or become lost.

Pet sitters and dog walkers in Peoria, AZ should understand these important aspects about temperature and how it can affect their client’s pets. If they don’t, potential clients should be looking elsewhere for a pet care provider.

The next blog post will discuss the wildlife around town and how it can affect a pet professional’s appointments. Until then, meet your pet’s needs, so that they can meet yours and stay tuned!

      Hi Dominique,
      I am also a retired nurse and I live in Sun City. I just adopted a female chihuahua 2 weeks ago. We have a couple of events coming up in the near future and most likely cannot bring our dog with us. I would like to know a bit more about your plans for pet sitting. We will not be gone for more than 3 nights at a time.
