Bored animals can easily get anxious, resulting in rebellious behavior such as furniture gnawing and forming a punk-rock cover band. Quash canine caterwauling with today's Groupon: for $29, you get $65 worth of pet-care services from Whiskers and Leo Pet Care, an in-home professional pet-care company servicing Staten Island, Hoboken, and Jersey City.
Whiskers and Leo gives pet owners peace of mind with personalized and private services oriented around watching, walking, entertaining, and otherwise caring for their animal comrades. Most services are done in the client's home to keep four-legged companions comfortable and help them maintain their normal schedule of tail chasing and dander-allergy research. General-purpose 30-minute visits ($22 each visit, $5 each additional dog, $3 each additional cat) can be personalized to each pet's needs, including litter-box cleaning, petting, and playing.
Keep waste from piling up in the yard through the waste-cleanup service, which will scoop up and dispose of extraneous fertilizer (prices quoted over the phone). Unlike outdated pet-aerobics videos, the company’s private dog-walking service ($20 per 30-minute outing) gives pooches a fresh, outdoor workout, and during business trips and vacations, in-home overnight pet-sitting services ($75 per night, at client's home) prevent furry housemates from organizing lavish theme parties that leave Milk-Bone crumbs embedded in carpet fibers.
Each of Whiskers and Leo's pet-care professionals is background checked, highly trained, and fluent in all critter dialects. Before services are rendered, clients may conduct a free consultation at the sitter's home, in which they can meet the sitter and the sitter can meet the pet and learn about its specific needs.
- Whiskers and Leo's pet sitters do more than just stop in just to let the pet out or feed them. They also keep them on a regular routine. – Susan Lunny Keag, Industry Magazine
