There comes a time in almost every dog owner’s life that you have to leave your dog for some reason or another. You might be traveling for work, taking a much needed vacation, or forced to leave town for a less enjoyable reason – either way, you’ve got to find some type of dog boarding to accommodate your four-legged friend.
While there are plenty of options out there, they aren’t always the best or most enjoyable for your dog.
If you choose a boarding kennel, your precious pup might be locked in a small cage for most of the day, with short walks a few times a day, and very little personal attention.
If you choose to hire an in-home dog sitter, your dog will be comfortable in his own home, but might spend a great deal of time alone between visits from the sitter.
If you choose to rely on a friend, she might let your dog out in the morning before she goes to work, forgetting to check that the gate is closed, and rather than spend the time chasing your dog down the street and being late for work, she’ll hope that your dog comes back home before you do. (Yes, this happened to me… )
So, unless you’ve got a reliable, dog-loving resource in your family and friends or a dog that enjoys spending his days locked in a small cage, the newest trend in dog boarding might be the perfect choice: Dog Vacay!
DogVacay.com is a unique new site that connects people in need of loving dog care with people willing to provide it. Instead of leaving your dog in a cage or in the care of an irresponsible friend, you’re connected with dog-lovers in your town that will take your dog into their home and provide him with the care and love that he gets at home.
Besides loving, in-home care, DogVacay goes to great lengths to ensure the quality of their hosts.
