Pet Sitter: Worry Free Dog Boarding for the Holidays

dog vacay Become a Host

Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?  But it isn’t.  The holidays are coming quickly and with all the traveling many families do there will be a good amount of people trying to figure out what to do with their pets while they are away.  DogVacay to the rescue! Seriously, if you are someone who thinks of their pets as members of their family then you probably take boarding your dog very seriously.  I know it’s hard to leave them home during the holidays while we are away so why not hire a babypetsitter? DogVacay is a young startup, but they put service first, for Guests, Hosts and pups. Not just anyone can become a Host.  They are carefully selected and they are the best in the world; all Hosts must maintain a 5 star review in order to stay in the community and send daily photo “pup”dates, so you know your four-legged family member is getting the best possible care. I love the idea of getting regular updates while I’m away and believe me, I can tell from a photo if my pup isn’t happy.  The DogVacay online community connects dog owners with 20,000 vetted and insured pet sitters across North America!  All reservations include free pet insurance, 24/7 customer support, and of course the daily photo of your best friend enjoying a “Vacay” of his/her own.

  1. I love Dog Vacay and have even considered being a host. It’s so convenient when we go away and I know my pets get taken care of.

  2. Mary Ambrosino says

    What an excellent idea.

  3. It is always hard for me to board my dog during the holiday time. It is the time when I want to visit family that is across the state. Since I live so far away from family I always am trying to find ways to visit my family during the holidays. I am excited for the upcoming holidays that will be happening at the end of the year. I hope by then that I will be able to find a boarding company that is in my area.

  4. I have a dog just like that, that loves to make himself right at home. It would be interesting to see a pet services company try to handle a dog that thinks he’s people. A lot of pet owners treat their dog as part of the family, which is a great thing. However, you picture made me think that the dog may have to make a bit of an adjustment when they are being cared for by a dog boarding company. I can only imagine that brown fellow being super unruly.
