How does pet sitting with DogVacay work? Check out this video.

Is pet sitting right for your dog or cat?
First off, pet sitting is a great alternative to the kennel. Many dogs (and cats) don’t enjoy a stay in a strange place with a limited ability to move around as they normally would. Even with kind caregivers, a kennel is still a facility. We think pets do better in homes.
Many of you might rely on friends and family to take care of your pets. Sure, a friend might agree to stop by and check on your pet, but human companionship for just a few minutes a day might leave your pet feeling stressed or lonely. Or maybe you drop off your pet with relatives. Technically it might be free, but you end up owing them one. Perhaps you just feel bad about continually asking for the “pet sitting” favor.
Every pet does well in a home. Senior pets in particular feel more comfortable their own environment. Animals with behavioral, territorial or medical issues may also do better in familiar environment. In-home pet sitting also makes sense for households with multiple pets. Why bring the animals to the sitter when the sitter can come to you?
Lastly, a word about cats: Getting a cat in a crate can often be an hours-long endeavor that can stress out felines and humans alike. If you manage to avoid getting scratched, you’re lucky or very skilled. In-home pet sitting lets everyone avoid the drama of transferring the cat to an unfamiliar location. Everybody gets to enjoy home sweet home.
