can i leave young puppies with a dog sitter?
Although no one wants to be separated from their pups, sometimes our busy schedules leave us with no choice but to put our trust in dog sitters. But finding the right dog sitter is difficult. If you’re based in London or the surrounding area and you’re looking for doggy daycare for a litter of puppies, we may be able to help you…
During our puppy therapy events, we are often asked where we source our pups from. The answer is that we have a small community of trusted owners in and around London who love letting their puppies be a part of our events. It's a safe and easy way to socialise their puppies and they know that they will be looked after (and cooed over!).
how does dog sitting at paws in work…work?
The wellbeing of pups is our main priority, which is why we have a stringent screening process to ensure that all parties, pups included, are comfortable and safe during our puppy therapy events. To warrant this, before our events we meet with owners regularly and get to know them. It’s also a great opportunity for them to get to know us and how we work and to help put their minds at ease. All our checks are just a few reasons why we are currently the only company in the UK licensed to run puppy therapy events, and why our breeder match is so popular!
Once we are finished with this process and believe the puppies are ready, the fun begins! We’ll show them exactly how everything works and what to expect. Then, during the events, we maintain communication between the owners and provide updates on their pups’ progress. Over the course of the coming weeks, we work across our socialisation checklists to ensure the pups have the best positive experiences, in their new surroundings. It’s a sure fire way to get pups comfortable and experienced ready for later life.
why is Paws in Work puppy socialising good for puppies?
Puppy socialising at Paws in Work brings many benefits to both owners and puppies. As puppies require a lot of time and attention, our puppy therapy events provide an excellent chance for young puppies to socialise with new faces and play in a wide range of settings. Through socialising from a young age, they will grow up to be more confident and sociable dogs.
At every event, our socialisation checklist ensures that puppies are developing properly each day they are with us. This is to make certain that puppies come away from the experience having had a beneficial and enjoyable experience, ready to settle into their forever homes better than expected.
what should I look for in a dog sitter?
If you have recently homed a new puppy/ puppies here are some useful tips and information to help you find your first external dog sitter.
Before you start your search for an external puppy sitter, we would recommend that your puppies have had all the necessary vaccinations. For the wellbeing and safety of the litter, they must settle into their own home before sending them to a new environment.
It is also important that your puppy sitter has the requisite knowledge of how to look after puppies. You want your pups to be in the best hands, so hiring someone who knows what to do in an emergency and how to care for your puppies properly is crucial.
Selecting a dog sitter or doggy daycare that is specifically geared towards puppies is also a great idea. In these environments, your puppies will be under constant supervision and will be continued to be schooled by the dog sitters, and will hugely benefit from the right training.
