Puppy Care Services

photo-puppyYBFF knows that bringing home a new puppy is exciting but it can also be exhausting and stressful. Not to worry, we have a service to help new puppy owners with important tasks involved in raising the newest member of your family. We will customize a feeding, exercise and training schedule just for your pup.

  • Keep a routine feeding (most puppies eat 3-4 times a day until 6 months)
  • Consistent potty breaks to support proper house-training
  • Introduction to loose leash walking during daily exercise
  • Help learn basic commands and manners through positive reinforcement (sit, heel, down, etc.)
  • Help keep puppy exercised and busy to burn off excess energy
  • A piece of mind for the pet mom/dad while away at work

 

Elder Care Services

We at YBFF love, love, love our senior pet friends. They hold a very special place in all of our hearts.

photo-old-dogsAs your pet ages, their comfort level becomes more of a concern while you are away than ever before. Aging pets have unique needs that require special care and attention. Many senior pets begin to feel the discomfort of hearing loss, arthritis, vision loss, joint pain and sometimes show signs of senility. Let’s face it, we all want to spoil them more than ever now and they deserve it.

Where is your senior pet most comfortable? The answer is in their own home. While senior pets sleep more during the day and night, they do have routines and familiarity of the surroundings in which they have come to rely on each day.

YBFF will make sure your senior pet is receiving the most compassionate and loving care possible. Because of blindness or hearing difficulties, the senior pet may be confused. We speak to them at all times before touching them and the entire time we are with them so we don’t startle them.

We prepare any type food required and administer any type medications and injections.

Patience, Care and Love

We handle all senior pets as if they may have arthritis or other joint problems moving very slowly and carefully when working with them in order to make them more comfortable and prevent injuries.

Accidents can happen. Older cats and dogs may occasionally soil floors and carpets if their nature calls and they are unable to reach the outside or litter box in time. We are very patient with your seniors and help them know we understand.

The most important thing is to continue lavishing an abundance of love on your aging pets. They do wonderfully knowing we are there for them, giving them a sense of security especially when they may feel anxious about their owner not being there.
