Finding a Good Pet Sitter

As summer and vacation times are fast approaching, finding a good pet sitter for our furbabies becomes extremely important.  If you cannot take your pets with you, this can be a daunting task.

If you live close enough and have family members you can trust, they can always be a good option.  Similarly, if you have a good friend who can come over and house-sit, you are all set.  For those of us who cannot do that, pet sitting is another option.

You can also contact kennels if you are okay leaving your pet at one of them.  There are also pet hotels, which can be very posh and very expensive.  Call around and go and visit the kennels in person and see if it is a place you wouldn’t mind leaving your pet.  Also, check online reviews, the BBB, and any place else before deciding where to have your pet stay when you go on your vacation.

If leaving your pet at home is the most reasonable option, here is an article that might help you find a good sitter.  A great thing is that there is a National Association of Professional Pet Sitters.  You can check out credentials and such on your potential sitter.

Hopefully that helps and everyone, including our furbabies have a wonderful summer!
