To say the least, I am my dog Maggie’s biggest fan.
So when my colleague told me about a great service that allows you to board your pet(s) in private homes, I was all ears. As it very much piqued my curiosity, I decided to put together a list of services around our condo projects for our furry little friends. Here is what I found on a variety of topics, including boarding houses, daycare, grooming, walking, veterinary care, food, clothing (!), toys, etc.
First, here is the famous site that inspired this post: dogvacay.com.
DogVacay helps you find a home to keep your dog while you’re out of town. You simply enter the city in which you want to leave your animal. You then have access to a selection of different profiles. For each profile, the price per night, as well as practical information and reviews from people who have already used the service for their animals, are displayed.
The site also states that all people offering services on the site are carefully vetted. The service started in the US but is now available around the world.
Here is a list I’ve prepared for you:
