The Fort Wayne Dog Kennel Alternative
Like any fortress, Fort Wayne guards valuables - in this case, treasures for Man's Best Friend. There is a single dog park in this city of 250,000, but dog sitters love Pawster Park Pooch Playground ($25 annual fee), built on a former baseball diamond. It's fun whether you have two or four legs. Another favorite spot for pet sitting hosts is Fox Island, which houses a 270-acre state nature preserve with trails, marshland, seasonal ponds, sand dunes, wetland forest... and a doggie beach! Pet sitters can take their guest dogs on a long walk on the Rivergreenway trail, stretching 24 miles along three river banks and connecting 15 city parks. Dog sitters also know of Johnny Appleseed Park - the final resting place of John Chapman (aka Johnny Appleseed) and a nice place for dogs sitters to rest with their pets during sweaty summers and brisk winters.

From late spring to early fall there's a celebration almost every weekend; Johnny Appleseed Festival, GermanFest, the Three Rivers Festival that attracts 400,000 visitors each July. Pets and pet sitters are always welcome. But at some of Fort Wayne's most spectacular attractions - the Lakeside Sunken Gardens, DeBrand Chocolates tour, Embassy Theater - dogs aren't allowed, but you'll find reliable Fort Wayne home dog boarding and pet sitting hosts DogVacay.com.
