FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A LEG UP: MILWAUKEE PET SERVICES TAKES INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO PET SITTING
Local Company’s New Unique Services Provide Pet Owners with an Even Greater Peace of Mind
Milwaukee, WI. (October 3, 2013) — Milwaukee Pet Services, a Milwaukee-area professional pet sitting and dog walking company, has expanded its services and offerings to now include untimed vacation visits and webcam rentals for its clients. These services are unique to Milwaukee Pet Services and are not being offered by any other pet service providers in the Milwaukee area. The company’s new initiatives strengthen its mission of providing peace of mind for pet owners while away from their pets.
Milwaukee Pet Services’ untimed vacation visits involve clients paying a flat rate fee versus being charged based on the length of the visit. The standard visit used by other pet sitting companies in the Milwaukee market is 30 minutes, which doesn’t always account for all of the emotional and physical needs of the pet. Milwaukee Pet Services Pet Sitters use their experience and discretion, along with following the pet owner’s specific care instructions, to ensure the pets’ needs are fully met before departing onto another pet visit.
“The decision to make vacation visits untimed was solely focused on providing the highest quality of care for the pets, which can otherwise be compromised by time constraints,” said Jessica Gutmann, Founder and CEO of Milwaukee Pet Services. “Untimed vacation visits allow us to fully customize each pet sitting visit for the individual pet, ensuring they receive the full amount of one-on-one quality care they need.”
Milwaukee Pet Services also recently added webcam rentals to their services, making them the only provider in the area offering clients the ability to watch their pets and their homes while away. Clients are able to set up the webcam in their homes and view the video from a computer or any iOS or Android device provided they have access to Wireless Internet services.
“Our value proposition is to provide our clients with peace of mind not only when they’re away from their pets, but also when they’re away from their homes,” said Gutmann. “Not only are the webcams a fun way to watch what your pets are doing when you’re not around, they also provide our clients with an added level of comfort and security knowing their home and pets are safe.”
