The Bloomington Dog Kennel Alternative

If you're from Indiana, you're a "Hoosier." If you're from Bloomington, you're probably attending Indiana University; the 80,000 residents include 40,000 undergrads and 7,000 employees at IU. And if you're a dog, you're in a good place. IU's campus has been named one of the five most beautiful in America, tops in the Big Ten and ideal for pets and pet sitters with a leash to promenade. (Pets aren't allowed in dorms.) Never mind the humid, rainy climate; you're sure to find pet sitters and their furry friends downtown, home to Saturday morning Farmers Markets and a multitude of pet friendly businesses. A standout for college-age dog sitters among the patio ice cream and sandwich shops is the Upland Brewing Company (motto: "We're dog friendly as long as your dog is friendly"). And if you're headed out of town, you'll find Bloomington's best dog sitting and home dog boarding hosts on DogVacay.com.

Pet sitters give Bloomington an "A" for its variety of dog parks and runs. There's lots of space, lots to do at the established Karst Dog Park (annual user fee: $50); the Ferguson Dog Park is new and sparkling clean; Griffy Lake Park near a wildlife preserve is being rebuilt; and Bryan Park, where pet sitters have to keep their guest dogs on leash. For the adventurous dogs, your dog sitter can check out the grounds of the popular Oliver Winery... but no pets in the tasting rooms. Regardless of what your Bloomington home dog boarding or pet sitting host does with your dog, you can guarantee that she'll be having a vacay to remember.
