19 June, 2013
I know that so many dog owners love to get away on a vacation or a business trip and can’t take their beloved pups with them.  Then, of course, there is the guilt about leaving your dogs at a kennel or boarding facility and you just don’t feel entirely comfortable doing so.  Well, Dog Vacay is the answer to just this situation.


Dog Vacay has a great concept and service (with a fun, adorable and elaborate website).  You can board your dogs in a home with real dog lovers/owners who will place your dog in an actual home. They have thousands of vetted and insured dog lovers across the country ready to watch your dog like a member of their own family. All you need to do is browse some of the doggy hosts in your area, see which one you like, schedule your trip and book online.  Easy enough!

Check out this great video to see how Dog Vacay works:

1.  Find the Perfect Host For Your Dog

You have the ability to search hundreds of pet sitters near you and read the host reviews to find    the best home for your dog.  Find the one you connect with and feel comfortable to take care of your pup.

3. Travel with Peace of Mind

Once you choose your dog’s home, you can leave your pup in a cage free home and get photo updates of his Vacay!  Think summer camp for your pups!   You can also feel at ease knowing you have emergency coverage and support for your pup.
