The Wichita Dog Kennel Alternative
Wichita, the biggest city of the heartland (metro area 630,000), offers big fun for pets and lots of options for dog sitting hosts to spoil their guest pups. The five full-service dog parks range from city-run, no-cost Chapin Dog Park (built in 2009, 10 acres, separate areas AND pools for large and small dogs) favored by dog sitters to the private Chisholm Creek Dog Park ($295 annual fee). Depending on the season, pet sitters can choose from dozens and dozens of city parks to walk a dog, stroll the 10-mile Arkansas River Trail and see herons, geese and the Keeper of the Plains sculptures, or traverse the paths of the oasis-like Great Plains Nature Center. For pet parents that have to travel, DogVacay.com helps you find the best of dog sitting and home dog boarding in Wichita.
In June, the Downtown and Old Town areas host the Wichita River Festival, a sensory delight for pets and dog sitters with parades and block parties, street plays and flea markets. Downtown is also a favorite destination due to its urban-style shops and pet friendly restaurants from morning to late night. Pet sitting and home dog boarding are a growing in Wichita, and necessary - because some of its other big-time attractions such as the county zoo, the first Pizza Hut (on the Wichita State campus), America's second-largest IMAX theater, Town West and Towne East shopping malls... don't allow dogs. Whether you need a pet sitter for the night or the week, you'll find the trusted Wichita home dog boarding and pet sitting hosts on DogVacay.com.
