Dog Boarding or Pet Sitter


When leaving Fido alone for a period of time, make sure that someone experienced and reliable is in charge so you can get on with having fun knowing your dog is in safe hands.

Pet Sitters and Boarding facilities are the most popular options for leaving our pets so we decided to give you a quick guide to both


Pet Sitter

Comes to the house and has the benefit of watching both house and your pets

Great for a multi-pet household as all pets can stay together (especially great if you have a mix of different species)

Keeps the same routine as normal with the same comfort of home (same bed, sofa and garden as they are used to)

Always ask for references  either in person or on sites such as Yelp

Reduces risk of catching diseases like kennel cough from other dogs

Vaccination history not needed

Make sure the person is insured, and your house is insured


Dog Boarding

Cage free boarding means your dog has the comfort of a home environment without cages

Home boarders often have multiple dogs so it is great for sociable dogs

Make sure you choose a Company that is fully Insured and Bonded (if in America)

Compare Prices online and read reviews

Ask local pet shops and dog walkers if they know of anyone that supplies this

If shared boarding facility, your dog will need to be up to date on its vaccinations

This isn’t suitable for dogs with anxiety of being in new places
