Do you know how to find the best care for your pet while on vacation? There’s a lot to do to prepare for your time away from home whether it’s for a business trip or a relaxing vacation. There are reservations to make, packing that needs to be done, and plans that need to be finalized before you leave. You also need to decide who will take care of your pet while you’re gone on vacation.
How to Find the Best Care for Your Pet While on Vacation
You want the very best for your pet so that they are happy, healthy and well cared for while you’re away so this isn’t a decision to make lightly. Many people feel they need to have their pet kenneled while they’re on vacation, but this can be very stressful for your pet and is not an option that I recommend.
A kennel can be a frightening place for your pet. They are in a strange place with smells that they aren’t familiar with. There are many other pets in the same area who are just as frightened as they are, and your pet can tell. You are not there. And, they aren’t in their own home surrounded by their favorite toys and all the comforting smells they’re used to.
Benefits of using a pet sitter
Instead of putting your pet in a kennel while you’re away, it makes much more sense to use a pet sitter. You can use someone from your neighborhood who can give your pet the love and attention they’re used to getting when you’re at home. Your pet will come to know your pet sitter more and more each time you’re away. This will let them form a bond and that just cannot happen at a kennel. Pet sitters are also a much more affordable option than a kennel. And, you’ll save money on transporting your pet back and forth to the kennel each time you travel.
PetsitterSpot is the ultimate place to find neighbors willing to care for your pets! At PetSitterSpot connecting pet sitters and pet owners is what they do. And, that’s all they do. Unlike other petsitting sites, PetsitterSpot does not act as a middleman. They don’t operate calendars, do bookings, handle payments, or charge commission. All of that can raise the cost for pet owners. And, it cuts into earnings for pet sitters. Pet owners and pet sitters can together agree on a price and handle payment however they choose. Essentially, PetSitterSpot is not a pet sitting business, it is a pet sitting network.
The service is free for both owners and pet sitters and accommodates all types of pets from dogs to lizards.
