New year

No sooner have we said goodbye to Christmas 2010,  the new year is upon us and and our office is once again a hive of activity.

December saw one of our pet  sitters suffer a bucked front wheel, in their attempt to reach their destination, largely due to the lack of treated roads in the Hemel Hempstead area, but  I feel sure that the horrendous weather conditions left every pet sitter throughout the country struggling and we are extremely pleased to welcome in the New Year!

Since we started our pet sitting service way back in 1998, we could never have anticipated its popularity and due to rapid expansion we are now able to offer our live in service throughout the South of the country. Would you believe, we even had an enquiry on Christmas Day!

Our recruitment drive for live in pet sitters is now in full swing, so if you would like the pleasure of a pet, without the responsibility, please visit our page for full details.  This type of work is ideally suited to retired professionals, since the work is largely part time, but each application is judged on merit.

We are also putting the final touches to our franchise package and already interest has been immense.  So much so that I have three interviews scheduled and it has yet to be formally launched.  It certainly is exciting times for us and this year is set to be the busiest yet.

Pet Insurance

At Nina’s Nannies for Pets, we have always been keen advocates of pet insurance. Ensuring that your pets medical requirements and veterinary bills are taken care of is of the utmost importance. If your animal becomes ill and requires urgent medical treatment, the last thing you want to be thinking about is the financial implications.

You would not think twice about insuring your vehicle or home and yet there are still many pet owners who fail to insure their pets. You are however, far more likely to claim on your pet insurance compared to the anything else!

There has been huge advances in veterinary treatments over the years and the costs can spiral, running into hundreds if not thousands of pounds!. As well as medical expense, cover will also typically include legal expenses should your pet cause injury to a third party. It can also cover the cost of advertising if your pet is lost and even a reward for their safe return. A more expensive policy can also offer a payout, should you be forced to cancel your holiday if your pet becomes sick.

Although cats and dogs are the easiest pets to find insurance, other animals can be covered – even exotics. However, you may have to search for a specialist provider if your pet is a bearded dragon!

Knowing that you are covered by reliable and affordable insurance offers complete peace of mind and allows your focus to be on their care and recovery.

We have always been dedicated to offering consumers the best possible care for their pets which is why you can now visit our Pet Comparison Directory.
