Ahh the dog days of summer.  While summer often means time to kick back, relax and soak up some rays, for us it means busy season! (Yay!)

At On the Move, we offer customizable vacation pet sitting services in the comfort of your home - you pick the days, times and durations for your visits (between 7am and 10pm) and we are there for your furry family members!  Overnights are also available if you'd prefer for someone to stay for the evening.  If you have an upcoming vacation planned, let us know how we can help!

Did you know...

Caring for a pet is worth a lot more than just close companionship! 
Here's 8 Impressive Health Benefits of Pet Ownership:

 1. Stress relief.  There's a reason some universities and grad schools have programs that bring in pets during finals week. Simply being in the same room as a dog or cat can lower your cortisol levels, and even more so if you're petting them.

2. Improved physical fitness. If you've ever taken care of a friend or family member's dog, then yo u've probably noticed a significan t increase in your activity over the day simply by taking the animal out to use the restroom or taking them on a short walk. Owning a pet not only gets you up and moving more, but it can help you be more productive throughout the day since your energy is already up.

3. Decrease chronic pain. Pets are shown to increase endorphin levels. Endorphins can be powerful pain relievers, which you may have noticed if you've ever experienced a runner's high. In addition, caring for a pet can be a positive distraction from pain.
4. Lower cholesterol. A survey by the Australian National Health Association showed that people, especially men, who own pets have lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels than non-pet owners.

5.  Lower blood pressure.  Along the lines of lower stress and cholesterol, pets also significantly decrease blood pressure, according to a study at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
6. Allergy prevention in children. A study published in Clinical & Experimental Allergy demonstrated that children exposed to pets when they were less than six months old were less likely to develop allergies later in life.
7. Overall mental health. Pets not only give you unconditional love, but they also give you something to love and care for as well. Pets boost self-esteem, along with feelings of autonomy and confidence, making you feel more self-acceptance.
8. Improve relationships. The Journal of Applied Developmental Science found that young adults with pets were better able connect to others and within their communities than those without pets. Pets can also be wonderful for families because they teach children kindness, respect, and responsibility.


Jennifer Y. 
   Jennifer couldn't be happier to be spending her summer caring for your furry friends. After a long semester away from her Pug dog, Bubba, she knew she wanted to find a workplace where she could spend as much time with animals as possible. She loves to treat your pets like they're her own because she finds joy in the innocent, playful nature of cats and dogs. From working at On the Move, she has found value in the small, cheerful moments she spends with your pets-- like being greeted at the door for a walk by a very excited pup. She will be returning to school in the Fall at Boston University to obtain her degree in Psychology and her minor in Deaf Studies, and has hopes to stay involved with On the Move throughout the school year.
