Whether you’re going on a trip to Las Vegas or you’re just spending a few days with your sister who’s allergic to dogs, sometimes, you just can’t take Fido with you when you travel. Finding safe and affordable care for your pet can be difficult, so we want to know, would you try a service like Dogvacay.com?
Usually, people either find a pet-sitter (maybe their dog-loving neighbor next door) or seek out the local kennel to keep their pooch safe and cared for while they’re away. Some people are even able to give their dogs a fancy, vacation-style experience instead of just another cage in a row of metal boxes. Unfortunately, these resort-like pet boarding facilities tend to be expensive leaving pet owners on a budget who want their dog to receive top notch treatment with limited options.
The going rate for a typical pet boarding facility is $12 to $26 USD a night, and those high-end fancy ‘doggie hotels’ can range anywhere from $40 to $110 USD a night. Dogvacay.com offers pet owners a third alternative. Instead of taking your dog to a kennel or a pricey pet resort, you can use Dogvacay.com to search for local “hosts” who are willing to take care of your dog in their home while you’re gone. All hosts are pre-screened by the site, and Dogvacay’s search options allow you to browse available hosts in your area and select the one that is the best fit for your dog.
Dogvacay.com’s rates start at $15 per night. Additionally, all reservations include complimentary insurance, 24/7 customer support, a 100% money back guarantee, and daily photos of your pooch and his or her vacation experience. In fact, all boarders are required to send these photos to the dog owners, showing them Fido’s cage-free, pampered and loving experience.
Would you use a service like this? Could your dog spend a few days to a week with another family? Would you be worried about losing your pooch’s love and adoration, or would you welcome the chance to avoid taking them to the kennel? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
