Why would we hire a pet sitter instead of boarding our pets or putting them into pet hotels?
Hiring a pet sitter helps to keep your pets comfortable in their own home, keeps them on their eating, exercise and sleeping routine, and keeps them from being exposed to other peoples pets that you don’t know the history of. it also gives them one on one attention that they normally get as well. also the cost is pretty comparable!
Where do you find a reliable pet sitter?
The best sources are your vet, your dog trainer, but there is also an amazing site out there called dog vacay. it is very similar to a childrens babysitter site or app. it shows you available pet sitters in your area, reviews for them, references, and allows you to meet with them with your pet before ever hiring them for an “interview.” that way you can see how your pet interacts with the potential sitter. www.dogvacay.com
