New Year’s Eve in Manhattan is quite a spectacle. Crowds of people swarm Time Square to witness the ball drop signifying the start of a new year, and in this case, a new decade. Some people like to go out for NYE, but when you have a pooch, going out with your doggo on a night like NYE can be too much craziness. If you’re looking for some fun things to do from the safety of your home, we’ve got you covered. Here are some fun things you and your pooch can do to ring in the New Year.

4 Ways to Ring in the New Year with your Pooch

Get Dressed Up!

When you’re ringing in the New Year, you want to make sure you’re doing it in style. Plus, one of the best parts of New Year’s is having an excuse to dress up with your pooch, right? The opportunities are endless from dressing up in formal attire to dressing up in onesies. No matter what you decide to do, the important part is that you’re spending it with your pooch, making goofy memories for you guys to look back on fondly.

Invite Yo Frienz Over

New Year’s is more fun with friends. Or at least we think so. Send out cute, doggie themed party invites for your NYE gathering. Have your guests bring human and dog-friendly treats so everyone feels included and you don’t have to resist puppy dog eyes begging you for food all night. Whether you want to plan a theme party to ring in the New Year or you just want to spend it with the humans and pooches you love the most in this world, invite your friends over to your home for a NYE celebration.

Watch the NYE Celebrations Together

Taking your dog out to Time Square for the ball drop would be chaotic and next to impossible. But who’s to say watching the festivities from your home can’t be just as fun? Avoid the crowds and pick up your favorite Chinese take-out or go-to dinner items. Make sure you plan something awesome for you doggo like adding some bone broth to their food or putting a couple bits of meat on top of their dinner so they can have an elevated meal for heading into the New Year. Then cozy up on the couch and watch the ball drop. It’s all the NYE fun without the hassle.

Movie Marathon

Here’s another suggestion for the pawrents and pooches that want to take it easy on NYE. A movie marathon is just about the most comfortable thing you can do to ring in the New Year. Put on those footie pajamas and get your doggo into their cozy sleeping attire and have a movie marathon. Choose all your favorite romantic comedies, animated films or just watch whatever you want while cuddling with your pooch. Grab some dog-friendly snacks and your favorite movie candy and ring in the New Year with your pooch from the safety of your home.

Holiday Pet Safety Tips

holiday pet safety

The holidays are approaching and soon it will be all-out chaos in Manhattan. The city is lit up and holiday cheer is spreading like wildfire. As you prepare to have guests over to your home, it’s important that your pet stays safe this holiday. Here are some of our holiday pet safety tips. Keep these in mind when you’re decorating your home and making your holiday plans.

4 Tips to Keep Your Pet Safe This Holiday

No People Food

We get it. Your pet sits at your feet begging you to give them table scraps from your delicious holiday meal. Those big ole eyes stare up at you, begging for you to make their holiday dreams come true. But the reality is, it’s just not safe for your pet to ingest human food, as harmless as it might seem. If your pet gets the wrong thing in their mouth or accidentally gets a piece of bone in their digestive tract, it could be very dangerous for them. Find another way to spoil your pet, like give them treats so they’re distracted.

Keep Holiday Plants Out of Reach

Depending on what types of animals you have around your home, is going to dictate whether you can even have holiday plants at your home. With dogs or caged animals, it’s a bit easier to keep the holiday plants out of the way because you just have to put them out of reach. But if you have a cat, you really need to be mindful of where your plants end up. Holly, mistletoe and lilies are especially harmful to pets, mainly cats. Tinsel is also dangerous, as cats like to play with it and could potentially eat it, creating a digestive issue for your pet. When it comes to holiday pet safety, be very careful with the plants you bring in your home.

Secure the Tree

Christmas trees are big and they have a lot of objects on them. If you collect ornaments, the things hanging on the tree can have sentimental value. The last thing you want to happen on Christmas is that your pet knocks over your Christmas tree. Secure your tree so that your dog, cat or other pet doesn’t knock the tree over, causing harm to themselves or others. It will save you a lot of heartache and cleanup.

Safe Space

The holidays can be overwhelming for pets. If you’re having company over for a prolonged amount of time, your pet needs a safe place to escape to if they need a break. If you have an extra bedroom or a quiet corner of the apartment, these are ideal places for your pet to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holidays.

Book a Pet Sitter this Holiday Season

The holidays are a crazy time of year, especially for pets. Most of the time, their parents go out of town or leave them for longer than usual. If you’re busy this upcoming holiday, make sure you book your all-inclusive pet sitting services with us today. Your pet deserves to feel safe during the holidays, and having a pet sitter come to your home is much easier than traveling with your pet anyway. Schedule your pet sitting services today.

Essential Winter Dog Gear

The Best Winter Dog Gear for New York City

winter dog gearNew York City gets cold in the winter. Duh. But when it’s cold, if you’re a pawrent to a doggo, you can’t just expect your dog to be able to go outside with nothing protecting them. Cold weather can be dangerous for dogs. When winter rolls around, having proper winter dog gear will ensure that your pet is protected and comfortable when they have to go outside to exercise or go to the bathroom. Here are some of our favorite pieces of winter dog gear to prepare your dog for winter in New York City.

4 Essential Pieces of Winter Dog Gear

Coat

Unless you have a dog that was born for the cold weather like a Siberian Husky or a similar breed. When the cold weather rolls in, most dogs need an extra layer (or two) of protection. A coat or good jacket is a piece of winter dog gear that’s essential in New York City. A jacket or coat should be water-resistant or waterproof if you really want to splurge and have a warm lining like fleece or cotton. If your dog likes to chew things, you may want to avoid zippers or buttons or hooks that could end up in your dog’s stomach.

Older or smaller dogs may need a sweater underneath their jacket for another layer of protection. Make sure the coat you get for your doggo isn’t too snug or your dog will be uncomfortable when they’re out doing their business. And that ain’t right.

Booties/Paw Protectors

Your dog’s paws are some of the most important pieces of their anatomy. Protect their paws and your doggo will have a whole lot more fun this winter. The paws of your dog’s feet are extremely sensitive, not only to cold or hot weather, but to things like the salt and other chemicals that are on the streets of NYC. Salt is used throughout NYC to minimize slipping and falling for humans, but it’s actually really harmful to doggos. If they get it on their paws and lick their paws, it can be extremely toxic for them. Avoid this scenario altogether by simply protecting your dog’s paws with booties or paw protectors and help them get the exercise they need throughout the winter months in NYC.

Snood

This is probably one of the funniest pieces of winter dog gear out there, but for dogs with long floppy ears or that are extremely sensitive to cold weather, a snood can be a lifesaver. This hat and scarf combo is the perfect addition to your dog’s wardrobe to protect against wind and cold weather. Most snoods have drawstrings so you can tighten or loosen them as needed to fit your doggo.

Sweater

Dogs that are older or smaller tend to need a little extra help during winter in NYC. An extra layer of insulation in the form of a sweater can help to get them through the winter months. When you’re choosing a sweater for your dog, the sweater should be tight but not snug so that their neck and legs can move about freely. But don’t leave the sweater on for too long, especially inside. It can cause your dog to overheat or even provoke a rash. The easier the sweater is to put on, the easier you’re able to remove it.

Find a Dog Walker or Pet Sitter in New York City

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean that you can decide to eliminate your dog’s exercise routine. You’re still going to have to take them for walks and make sure they’re able to do their doggie business. But if you’re are unable to brave the NYC cold or you have a busy holiday schedule, let our Bingo dog walkers and pet sitters help you out. We don’t care if it’s cold outside. We know your dog still needs to get their exercise and fresh air.

Protect Your Pet While You’re Away

Ways to Increase the Security of Your Pet

protect your petOwning a pet is one of the most joyous and fulfilling experiences of your life. It comes with cuddles, laughs and a whole lot of love. But it can also come with other emotions like worry. After all, your pet is essentially your child. If you’re constantly thinking about ways you can protect your pet while you’re away, this blog is for you. Here are some things you can do to increase the security of your pet and give yourself some additional peace of mind.

3 Ways to Increase Your Pet’s Security

Get a Pet Camera

Pets can be a handful, especially puppies, kitties and other pets in the early stages of their lives. Getting a pet camera, allows you to monitor your pet and increase your pet’s security. Some of these high-tech devices even allow you to talk to your pet. If you catch them in the act of shredding cushions or other household items, you can chime in. If you want to just say hi, you’re more than welcome to do so. You can also see if your pet is having a health emergency or acting strange and you can even dispense treats. A pet camera is a great way to protect your pet and add extra peace of mind to your life.

Security System or Service

These days, security systems are extremely accessible to the everyday consumer. For just over $100, you can get a digital doorbell and memberships for security services like ADT are also very affordable, as many more Americans are prioritizing home security in the midst of the rise of package thieves.

The great thing about a security service is that you can hook it into your security control panel and it can let you know about environmental threats like fire, flooding or carbon monoxide. You can alert the company that you have a pet in the home so if the alarm is ever set off, the authorities know that there’s a pet in the residence. It’s just another way you can protect your pet while you’re away.

Pet Insurance

As an added layer of protection for your pet, you may want to consider pet insurance. Pets get sick and have chronic illnesses just like humans. As you know, going to the doctor can cost a pretty penny. Pet insurance doesn’t only protect your pet, by allowing you to choose your own veterinarian and seek medical attention at your choice of facilities, but it gives you the peace of mind you deserve as a pet owner. While certain things aren’t covered, pet insurance is still a great way to protect your pet and your pocketbook.

Entrusting your pet with a pet sitting service isn’t as easy as it sounds. Especially because there are so many options right here in Manhattan. But at Bingo Pet Care, we do things differently. We strive to provide a safe and loving environment for your pet, making them our priority. Schedule a meet and greet today, and find out why we’re the safest pet sitters in Manhattan.

How to Introduce a New Cat to Your Home

introduce a new cat

Help Your Cat Transition to Their Forever Home

introduce a new catKittens and cats can be really sensitive to new environments and unusual surroundings. Much of the time, new cats will hide in the closet or under the bed when they’re first introduced to a new home. After a while, they should adjust to their new home but it can be one of those things that takes a little longer. Here are some easy tips to introduce a new cat to your home and make their transition to their forever home.

4 Tips to Introduce a New Cat to Your Home

Give Your Cat Its Own Space

If you didn’t already know, cats can be territorial in nature. Bringing a new cat home can leave them overwhelmed and even scared of their new environment. One way you can make your cats transition more comfortable is to provide your cat with a space of their own right away. Space is hard to come by here in New York City, but if you can dedicate a corner or an area to their cat toys, litter box, food and water, their acclimation will be that much easier.

Microchip Them or Use GPS Tracker

When cats feel scared, they like to run away to places that they feel comfortable and safe in. If you rescued a cat, the chances are they are going to be very skittish when you bring them home. Cats have been known to scurry their way out the front door or open window, so when you introduce a new cat to your home make sure you’re very mindful of that. As an added layer of protection, you can microchip them or put a GPS tracking collar on them. That way if they do escape, you have some way to find them.

Cats Love High Places

Introducing a new cat to your home can potentially lead to destroyed furniture. As someone who has had cats before, this probably isn’t coming as a surprise to you. This tip will not only make your cat happy, it could potentially save your furniture too. Cats like to survey things from up high. Getting a cat tree gives your cat somewhere high to escape to, but it also gives them something to scratch instead of your furniture. Two birds. One stone.

Familiarity is Key

This couldn’t ring more true in regards to your cat’s diet. It’s common for cats to not eat when they’re introduced to a new home. Be patient, it’s all part of the process. At first, you should keep them on the same diet that they had at their foster home or shelter. Things that are familiar encourage acclimation.

Bring a Bunny into Your Life

Benefits of Becoming a Bunny Parent

bunnyMaking the decision to bring a bunny into your life, or any other pet for that matter, is a big one. There are many things to consider like space, especially in New York City, and maintenance. After you convince yourself you’re ready to take the plunge into parenthood, you can start thinking about all the love that little ball of fluff is going to bring to your life. We can’t list all the benefits of becoming a bunny parent, but we can definitely name a few.

5 Benefits of Being a Bunny Parent

Less Space Required

Space in New York City is hard to come by. And when you’re considering adding a fur baby to your family, that needs to be one of the first things you think about. The great thing about owning a bunny is that bunnies don’t take up as much space as other pets. Bunnies are cute and cuddly and they don’t even require you to walk them. They just need some space that has been bunny-proofed to run around in for an hour or two a day. A small cage or playpen with water, hay and a litter-box is all it takes to create the perfect environment for adding a hoppy family member.

Quiet

As much as we love dogs, sometimes dogs can get a bit rambunctious. They tend to wake up to noises in the middle of the night and have been known to bark at house guests and even random strangers. Bunnies are the exact opposite. If you’re looking for a relatively low maintenance but high reward pet, a bunny could be a great option for you. What they lack in bark they make up for in cuddles.

Distinct Personalities

Many people are under the impression that bunnies don’t have much of a personality, but really the exact opposite is true. Bunnies have distinct personalities, just like humans. That’s why it’s really important to spend some time with the bunny you’re thinking about adding to your family before doing so. Some bunnies are playful and others are more shy and reserved. Pick a bunny that’s going to suit your personality type.

Bunnies Love to Bond

Bunnies just like other pets love to bond with their owners. As a bunny owner, interacting with your bunny on a daily basis is going to cause you guys to become close. Bunnies have the capacity to recognize their parent’s voice, come on command and will even follow you from room to room and jump on your lap if you let them. They are loving creatures that are much cuddlier than you think. Forming a bond with a little ball of fluff is one of the best parts of bringing a bunny into your life.

Easily Trained

Bunnies are easily trained. They can be taught to use a litter-box and through positive reinforcement training, they can be taught to learn certain behaviors by rewarding them for completing the task. Many of the same methods used to train dogs can be used on bunnies. If that’s not another reason to bring a bunny into your life, we don’t know what is.

Does Owning a Pet Enrich Your Life?

Reasons Why Owning a Pet Enriches Your Life

owning a petMaking the decision to own a pet is one that will add joy to your life. It will give you a reason to wake up in the morning. Mostly because they’ll probably need food, water or to be walked. But also because you’ll want to get up and spend time with your best furry, scaled or feathered friend. Owning a pet is quite the responsibility, but it’s one that is totally worth it. If you think you want to be a pawrent but you’re still hesitant, here are some reasons why owning a pet will enrich your life. And maybe this blog will persuade you to take the plunge.

3 Reasons Why Owning a Pet Enriches Your Life

Teaches You Responsibility

When you decide to get a pet, you’re putting another being’s life in your hands. That animal becomes dependent on you for everything from providing a place to live to feeding it to making sure it gets exercise. You have to make more responsible choices. For instance, if you like to go out of town every weekend, you’re either going to have to take your pet with you, or find reliable pet sitters in Manhattan to take care of it for you. (Easier said than done, unless you use Bingo Pet Care.) A dog can’t be left alone for days on end. Neither can a cat, reptile, bird or pocket pet. You have to make choices that account for the well-being of your pet. Owning a pet is a huge responsibility, but it’s also one of the best responsibilities you’ll ever have.

Prepares You for Kids

Similar to teaching you responsibility, pets are a great way to prepare for children. Some couples get a pet first to see if they’re able to raise an animal together before they try for a human family member. Pets teach you so much about parenthood. Your dog, cat, fish or bird depends on you for everything. Feeding, grooming, exercise, shelter, warmth, comfortability, socialization, love, you name it, your pet will probably depend on you for it at one point or another. Children depend on their parents for everything as well. Your pet will follow you to the bathroom, jump on your lap, eat your food unexpectedly, just like a child will. It’s the perfect preparation for parenthood. But owning a pet is a little bit easier, just saying.

Pets are Just Plain Awesome

Owning a pet is one of the easiest ways to enrich your life. Pets are amazing. They have so much personality. Take cats for instance. You never know what you’re going to get. Some days they’re snuggly other days they want to stay in their favorite spot and only come down for food. Dogs will just constantly love on you. They will follow you around and they will constantly want to interact with you because they’re so loyal and loving. Even pocket pets have personality and like to play with toys and interact with their owners. Pets spark joy in the lives of their owners. Owning a pet may be a responsibility, but it’s awesome. The bond you form with your pet is one that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

The Best Pet Sitters in Manhattan

Finding a reliable and professional pet sitter in Manhattan is one of the first things you need to do if you own a pet. You aren’t always going to be able to provide care for your pet. Life gets in the way, whether it’s that unexpected business trip or a week-long vacation to the Bermuda, you’re going to want someone reliable and trustworthy taking care of your pet. That’s where we come in. At Bingo, we make your pet our priority. We provide a co-parenting experience so your pet can keep their daily routine and you can take care of whatever it is you need to take care of. Schedule your pet sitting services today.

 

 

 

Best Cat Toys

Cat Toys for your Fav-fur-ite Feline

cat toysCats are a bit of an anomaly in the pet world. One second they need you the next second they don’t even want to be in your vicinity. But cat lovers understand cats and what they need to live happy lives. One of the things that we believe is essential for a cat to live a long, happy life is toys. Lots and lots of toys. The great thing about cats is that even the most basic of things can turn into cat toys like string and boxes. There are tons of different cat toys out there but these are some of our professional cat sitter’s personal favorites.

4 of the Best Cat Toys

Laser Pointer

One of the most entertaining toys in general, for both humans and cats, is a laser pointer. You, as the pawrent, get to play with your cat for a prolonged period of time, sending them all over the room or wall chasing the laser pointer. This may seem like it’s boring. Trust us, it’s not. Especially for your cat. Your cat will love the interaction and the stimulation while engaging their hunting senses. This is one of the cheapest, yet best cat toys around. The only hang up is it requires you to administer the fun.

Catit Design Senses Massager Center

Have you ever noticed your cat rubbing up on things like table legs, chairs, sofas and even the floor? That’s because they like the different textures and how they feel against their fur and skin. As humans, we can relate because we love massages too! So what better toy to get your cat than a kitty massager? The Catit Design Senses Massager Center has a gum stimulator, an Acupressure mat for stimulating the paws and a ripple massager that allows them to scratch whatever itch they may have. Cats have an increased sense of touch and this cat toy allows them to get stimulation on a variety of levels.

Wall-Mounted Play Set

If there’s one thing we know about cat’s it’s that they love to climb things. They’ll climb just about anything they can get a grip on. So when it comes to cat toys, getting them a wall-mounted play set will give them the ability to pounce all over your living space. Situate the different pieces wherever you see fit and watch your cats go crazy with glee.

Boxes

Remember how we said the most basic of things can turn into a cat toy? Well, it’s true. In fact, you’ve probably already gotten several cat toys in the mail if you’ve ever ordered anything off of Amazon or received a package from Aunt Gertrude. Cats are bizarre creatures. And most cats like boxes or things they can fit snugly inside of. Some cats just like to claw at the boxes, but regardless, boxes are an inexpensive way to keep your cat entertained.

Safe and Reliable Cat Sitters in Manhattan

Cats are much more skeptical of people than dogs are. That’s why when you’re looking for someone to take care of your precious feline, you need to find a cat sitter in Manhattan that not only has experience, but loves cats. At Bingo Pet Care all of our pet sitters love animals. We work hard to make your pet our priority. Let us help take care of your nonhuman family member and schedule your pet sitting needs here.

 

General Pet Safety Tips

General Tips for your Pet’s Safety

pet safetyBeing a pet parent is a full-time job. There’s always something that needs to be done from feedings and walks to veterinarian visits and cuddle time. And then there’s always that constant thing called worry that most pet parents go through when they’re not with their pet. Sometimes you realize that there are things you could be doing to enhance your pet’s safety. Here are some things to keep in mind in regards to pet safety.

8 Pet Safety Tips

Dog Specific Safety Tips

Walk at Optimal Times

We’re getting into the hottest time of year in NYC, summer. The temperatures are rising, the humidity is relentless and your dog is going to need you to be mindful of both of those things. Temperatures greatly affect your dog. Consider taking your dog on walks earlier or much later in the day. If you use a dog walker in NYC like Bingo, try and move your dog walks to earlier in the day or evening, especially if you have a small dog.

Paw Protection

When the sun beats down on the NYC asphalt all day, the temperature of the ground rises. At some points during summer, the asphalt and sidewalks can exceed 100 degrees. Your dog’s feet need to be protected. Put paw protectors on your dogs feet when you walk them and make sure your dog walker knows where they are. The same thing goes for the winter months. When it’s super cold and there’s ice and or snow on the ground, your dog’s paws need to have protection. This pet safety tip is really critical, so don’t forget to protect your doggos paws this summer and year-round.

Safe Leash

Not all leashes are created equal. When you’re walking your dog, you don’t want to leave anything up to chance. Dogs are squirmy little creatures. They find ways to weasel out of their collars, off their leashes and even out of their own homes. That’s why when you walk your dog, having a secure leash is important. Secure leashes look like this. Unsecure leashes look like this. Get a secure leash ASAP, and increase your dog’s safety while walking exponentially.

Crate Safely

If it’s hot and you crate your animal, make sure that you move the crate out of the sun and into a shady area. Conversely, if it’s cold, insulate your dog’s crate more. A general rule of thumb when it comes to dog and pet safety, is when you’re hot or cold, your dog probably is too. Another thing you need to do if you’re crating your dog, is to make sure the crate is securely closed. The last thing you want is for your furry friend to get out and destroy all the pillows or eat something they shouldn’t while you’re away.

General Pet Safety Tips

Temperature Control

As we mentioned before, if you’re hot or cold, your pet is probably in the same boat. For cats, birds and pocket pets or reptiles that are left at home for long periods of time it’s important to be mindful of the temperature of your home. During those days where it’s really hot, close the blinds and have some fans blowing so your home gets air circulation throughout the day. This pet safety tip can also be applied to cool weather, in that you should insulate your pet’s favorite spots and make sure your home isn’t freezing while you’re out.

Microchip and GPS Tracker

Having a pet means that you need to be ready for the unexpected. One way you can plan for the unexpected is getting your animal microchipped and or installing a GPS tracker somewhere on their collar or body. Most dogs are microchipped and cats can have that done as well, but it’s only useful if someone turns your animal into a veterinarian or shelter. A GPS tracker can easily be placed on a collar for dogs and cats and will actually communicate your pet’s actual location. This could be handy if you have a dog that is known for getting out or a cat that likes to think they belong outdoors.

Reliable Pet Sitter

When it comes to pet safety, having reliable and safe pet sitters in NYC is crucial. Leaving your pet with someone can be scary. And you would assume that all NYC pet sitters know what they’re doing. But the reality is, they don’t. Work with a reliable and safe pet sitting company in NYC like Bingo Pet Care and skip the anxiety over your pet while you’re away.

Hydration

In the summer months, hydration for your pets is critical as far as pet safety is concerned. Leave a bigger water bowl for your dog, cat or reptile and add another water spigot for your bird or pocket pet. Having too much water available for your pet is much better than leaving not enough water and having them overheat while you’re not home. Hydration might be the most important part of pet safety during the summer months.

Safest Pet Sitters in New York City

When it comes to your pet’s safety, there’s no shame in taking extra precautions. Hiring safe and reliable pet sitters in New York City is one of the easiest ways to ensure that your pet remains safe while you’re away. At Bingo, we make your pet our priority and give them a co-parenting experience while you’re gone. Gone are the days of worrying about your pet, because when you put them in our hands, you’re putting them in the hands of the most reliable pet sitters in NYC. Join our Bingo family today.

Why Being a Pet Sitter is Pawesome

being a pet sitter

Reasons Why Being a Pet Sitter is Awesome

being a pet sitterPets are awesome. They light up rooms with their cuteness and give us humans a best friend for life. So if you had the opportunity to hang out with pets all the time and get paid for it, wouldn’t that feel like a pretty awesome thing? There are people all over Manhattan that need reliable pet sitters for their animals when they’re out of town or need an emergency fill ins. If you’re the type of person who likes to work hard but also likes to hang out with cute fur and feathered friends, consider being a pet sitter. It’s one of the most fulfilling jobs you’ll ever have.

3 Reasons Being a Pet Sitter is the Best Job

Hang Out with Cute Animals Frequently

Let’s start out with the most obvious perk of being a pet sitter which is that you get to hang out with cute animals pretty much all the time. A pet sitter doesn’t just take care of one kind of pet. Being a pet sitter is about taking care of different types of pets from dogs and cats to birds and hamsters. What other job do you know of where you get to snuggle cute animals or walk through NYC on a daily basis? A pet sitter gets to hang out with cute animals every day that they go to work, and if that isn’t an awesome reason to be a pet sitter, we don’t know what is.

Provide Peace of Mind

Pet sitters are often times very caring and compassionate people. Pet sitters care about the pets they take care of and they people that they are providing peace of mind for. If you’re a pawrent, finding someone to fill in for you when you have to go out of town can be stressful. Do you ask a friend? Do you hire a service? And what happens if they don’t show up? There are all kinds of questions that surround finding care for your pet. Being a pet sitter means that you get to provide pawrents with relief, especially if you’re a part of the Bingo team. Our pet sitters are the most reliable pet sitters in all of Manhattan, and they love to give pawrents all over NYC peace of mind while they’re away from their fur or feathered child.

Pets Need You

As a pet sitter, pets need you. They aren’t able to provide care for themselves when their pawrents are away. They aren’t self-sufficient for days on end and they need someone to provide them with essentials like food, water, exercise and socialization. One of the most fulfilling parts of the job is knowing that the pets are fully reliant on you, and that is a big burden to carry. But it’s also one that our Bingo pet sitters are well aware of. Pets need reliable pet sitters just as much as their pawrents do.

Join Our Team of Reliable Manhattan Pet Sitters
