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.

Great experience with Breeanna and Greg caring for our our little pup SciFi over a 9 day stay. Breeanna was very quick with all communication and very easy to reach. Most of all though, you can tell that they love dogs and took extra special good care of our little guy. He came home happy and relaxed. It means so much to us that our pup was so lovingly cared for. Thank you so much Breeanna and Greg for such a positive experience for us AND for SciFi :)

Nichole was wonderful! This is a last minute reservation and she was very accommodating and responsive during the entire process. I felt very comfortable leaving Miley with Nichole. Miley seemed to have a great time while we were away. Nichole will definitely be a "go to" for future reservations.

I was so happy to have found Rebecca! We have two dogs and we're going away and didn't want our doggies to be locked up in kennels all day! Not one time in the four days we were gone were the dogs ever in kennels. They got to run around and play all day. She even let them sleep in her room. It gave me such a piece of mind knowing my fur babies were having a great time. She sent me pictures daily and kept me updated with how they were doing. She has a nice fenced in yard and was so loving with my dogs. I will definitely be going back to her again!!
