Do you have a picky pet?
You're not alone. Many pets show preferences for different types of people and different situations. It is not uncommon to have a dog that doesn't seem to like other people - or at least doesn't warm up quickly.
At FurBabies Home Pet Care, we have certainly met a few dogs that didn't seem to take to us right away. But we assure you that in the vast majority of situations, your dog will not only warm up to us - they'll be excited for the visit.
One word of caution. There are some dogs that have not been socialized that do occasionally show signs of aggression towards strangers and non-family members. In those cases we do ask that you try training your dog in advance, teaching them not to be aggressive towards other humans.
We are MORE than happy to give you some resources on how to socialize your dog. We do not put our pet sitters at risk, so aggressive dogs may require a bit of training before we can start watching them.
With that in mind, dogs that bark, or run away, or show mild aggression out of fear - these are often dogs that just need a bit of care to get used to our presence. We use several tricks to make sure that your dog is ready for our service. These include:
In addition, dogs - including picky dogs - are usually fine once they're on a leash and outdoors with someone they know. So once we've met them and given them a chance to get to know us, they should be more than comfortable with our presence after a short amount of time until they become excited to see us every day.
Even if you have a picky dog, our pet sitters are ready to help. Give us a call today for more.
