Have You Got What It Takes?

Part of our service to the WA community is helping families come together! Pet ownership is super exciting, there’s nothing more special than finding that little (or big) furball that completes your family. You’ll come to know their quirky habits and you’ll no doubt take dozens of photos of them in the same position. Just like a new parent! But first, there’s a few things we’d love for you to consider.


Do you have other pets?

Cats, dogs, or perhaps chickens or rabbits? How is a new pet going to fit in with your current family? Do you have an older dog perhaps with arthritis? How would having an energetic puppy affect their health?


Do you have children?

How old are they? And how responsive are they to your directions? Are you perhaps planning on having children in the next few years? If you are, try to expose your pets to children and work out a plan about how you’re going to keep incorporating the pets in your family once your new bundle arrives.


Planning on a trip but have pets?

There are lots of kennels and catteries around Perth, and there’s also a huge network of in-house home sitters who are also experienced animal carers. Plan ahead of the really busy Christmas/New Year and Easter period as these weeks book out months in advance. Most kennels and catteries will require up to date vaccinations too.
