Do dogs need daily walks?
Veterinarians recommend at least one 30-minute walk daily for dogs. However, some dogs require longer walks or extended play sessions to fulfil their exercise needs. Walks improve your dog’s overall physical and psychological health.
Do puppies need daily walks?
Beginning a walking routine once your puppy reaches an appropriate age is highly beneficial for their health, training, and socialization.
Are your dog walkers and pet sitters bonded and insured?
Yes. Every member of the Rover’s Recess team is bonded and insured.
Why should I use a local dog-walking company instead of a national app-based or online service?
Laurie Robinson has been a trusted leader in the pet care community of Valparaiso and Chesterson since 2007. Additionally, we ensure all of our employees have gone through a rigorous background check and have been drug tested. Furthermore, when you use a local business, you’re supporting your local economy.
What if my cat won’t come out during your visit?
We love that cats have such unique and quirky personalities. We strive to form a nurturing bond with every animal in our care. However, this takes time. Luckily, we have a knack for encouraging cats to come out and play and enjoy some affection. If your cat chooses to stay hidden during a cat sitting visit, we will verify their location and their safety before we leave.
Will we receive the same dog walk or pet sitter every time?
For the most part, we try to keep the same sitter or walker assigned to your pet to reinforce greater familiarity and to strengthen the long-lasting bond between your pet’s caregiver and your pet. However, this is not always possible. You can rest assured, though, that our small team of highly qualified pet caregivers will provide the best experience for your pet during every visit.
Will my pet sitter or dog walker arrive at the same time every time?
Our team will arrive during a designated window of time.
Will our pet sitter bring in our mail, water our plants, and take our trash out on the designated day?
We always strive to provide the best customer service for pets and their owners. We will gladly perform these services upon request.
Does Rover’s Recess work with special-abled pets?
Absolutely. Special-abled pets hold a special place in our hearts. Whether your pet is deaf, blind, or has a physical impairment, we will provide the utmost loving care to them.
