South Bend, Indiana is best known as the home for the famed University of Notre Dame... whose Fighting Irish mascot was originally an Irish terrier. In many ways Notre Dame is the center for the city of 100,000, and dog sitters revel in walking the spectacular grounds with Man's Best Friend (although pets are not allowed in the stadium, dorms or other campus buildings). South Bend does not have a dedicated off-leash dog park - the closest is the four-acre Margaret Prickett Marina Park in nearby Mishawaka - but for pet sitters who can work around or walk through the annual 82 inches of snowfall, there are 50 parks and a handful of other favorite destinations. Dog sitters and their guest pups love to walk along the scenic St. Joseph River walkways, notably the East Race Waterway or Eastbank Trail. With so many great pet friendly options and activities for dog sitters, it's no surprise that residents of South Bend prefer DogVacay.com's home dog boarding and pet sitting services instead of the kennel.
The downtown area is a thriving place to be on Fridays, some of which are designated DOGtown day (pet friendly) when pet sitters can eat with their entourage. Fat Tuesday - Mardi Gras - is another day celebrated downtown with plenty of eye candy for dog sitters and dogs alike. If you're traveling for a week or just the night, find a trusted and insured South Bend dog sitting and home dog boarding hosts on DogVacay.com.
