Did You Know We Can Help With Pet Care Too?

There’s a reason that 90% of Australian households have owned a pet at some time. Pets are known to make us smile, and reduce stress and anxiety. They may great companions to ease loneliness, and great playmates for children. And, who can deny the loyalty and love our pets show us, especially at dinner time!

Owning a pet is a huge responsibility. These little fluffballs rely on us for everything. We ensure their health, wellbeing, and safety – and we love doing it.

Simply Helping’s Pet Care

One thing in life is certain – change. Perhaps you need to stay in hospital or take a short vacation. Maybe you are recovering from illness or injury. Or, perhaps your mobility is waning. No matter your circumstances, Simply Helping can help you look after your beloved pet.

Our pet sitting and dog walking services may be accessed as part of your Home Care Package, or NDIS plan. You can also choose our pet care services as a lifestyle choice.

Dog Walking

Some people assume that having a big backyard provides ample space for their dog to run around, giving their pet enough exercise. Like humans, dogs like to leave the house too. If left confined to the home for too long, your dog may become bored. Boredom can lead to destructive behaviour. Your dog enjoys exploring the neighbourhood. There are plenty of new smells to tantalise his or her nostrils, and the prospect of bumping into another dog is very exciting. The amount of exercise your dog needs to stay healthy depends on its age, health, and breed. Some dogs need 30 minutes a day, while others benefit from 2 hours of walking per day. There are many Simply Helping care workers who are avid dog lovers. If you’re unable to exercise your dog, talk to us about our dog walking service.

Pet Sitting

As much as we’d all like to, we just can’t take our pet everywhere with us. That’s where Simply Helping can help. We provide pet sitting services in the comfort of your own home. In home pet sitting has its advantages. Pets are very comfortable in their home environment. So, when situations change, and they have a different carer for a while, pets are likely to adapt much faster to a new carer in their usual surroundings, compared with adapting to a new carer and a new environment. Simply Helping’s pet sitters will ensure there is plenty of food and water available for your pet. They clean your pet’s living space, and interact with your pet, providing stimulation. Your pet will be safe and happy until you return.
