Dog owners: the fresh alternative to kennels
Leaving your dog at a kennel can be distressing, and asking a friend or family to dog-sit can feel too imposing. So what is a vacationing dog owner ‘s alternative?
Memorial day is right around the corner, If you want to find amazing people in your neighborhood to give your dog undivided attention and love, look no further, new site called Dog Vacay, will help you find a local home for your dog while you’re away. Pet owners who take their dogs along on trips may also use the service to find sitters or host homes in cities they visit- a great alternative if your hotel doesn’t accept pets, or if you don’t want to leave your dog in the hotel room all day.
Dog Vacay is helping thousands of dogs find their own vacations while their families travel. Dog Vacay gives people an alternative to caged kennel boarding by matching dogs with awesome home-based dog boarding where Fido will feel warm and comfy. The online community that’s free to use, matches dog owners in need of pet-care services with amazing qualified animal caregivers, all a cost of half the average kennel stay, that will keep all tails wagging.
Pets can “vacation” conveniently in the capable hands of hosts at a nearby home with a big backyard for a husky, or a one-bedroom apartment for a Chihuahua, for example, while their owners are free to enjoy a guilt-free vacation knowing their best friends are being well cared for and not missing their usual comforts of home.
Dog owners will also experience the peace of mind that comes with pre-qualified hosts, daily photo updates, 24/7 support, vet care, the Dog Vacay Concierge who can set up massages and other goodies as well as insurance coverage. A dog’s life isn’t so ruff!
