What’s in-home dog boarding?

Is in-home dog boarding right for your pet?
We believe that pets are better with people and in real homes — not in facilities cooped up alone in cages. DogVacay provides an alternative to kennels. In addition, many of our customers use in-home boarding instead of repeatedly begging family and friends to pet sit.
With more than 40,000 screened sitters and pet-care providers, we provide an experience that pets and pet parents feel good about. We do this through individualized attention, welcoming environments and cage-free stays in real homes. We also offer free Meet-n-Greets, so pet parents, pet sitters and dogs can all get to know each other before booking.
As part of the sharing economy, we help pet sitters earn extra income doing something they love. For pet parents, our service means more choices for quality care and a regular network of people they can count on for care, again and again. Many customers think of DogVacay pet sitters as an extension of their circle of family and friends. After all, our pet sitters are taking care of a member of the family.
A further benefit is that customers can keep their dollars in their own communities, supporting real people in their own neighborhoods. Additional value comes from the peace of mind that we and our sitters provide. Each reservation made through DogVacay’s site and app includes daily photo updates, 24/7 customer support and premium pet insurance.

Michele and Erni are good with our dog and have given her good care three times now. They are loving and send us photo updates about how she is doing. They have a big fenced yard and play ball with our dog. They are very nice people and dog lovers!

This is the first time we left our little Sophie. We rescued Sophie 1 year ago and she had a really tough life prior to coming to us so we are very careful that she only have the most positive experiences and no longer lives in fear. After meeting Thelma I knew this was the place for our little one.The day we left, Sophie wasn't well, which made us even more anxious. Thelma has such a calming manner that we were ok in leaving her. At the airport we received an update picture of Sophie. This calmed us so that our trip was then off to a good start. We received updates every single day on how she was faring. I bragged and showed everyone I could. They couldn't believe how attentive Thelma was. The home environment is like a 5 star hotel so clean and very homey atmosphere. My little one thrived under the attention of Thelma and Gary. When we came to pick up Sophie I saw her out for her walk and she looked so content. No fear no stress just a very happy little one. We definitely feel we have won the lottery by finding Thelma and Gary and definitely will use them in the future.

Charlie was an excellent host to our dog Casco. This was her first vacay and Charlie let us know via pictures and msgs that she was settling in nicely. He sent daily pictures and we could see that she was happy. We also
appreciated his willingness and availability for a meet and greet before the vacay. We have already booked another vacay with him!
