DogVacay Review!

You all know how much I adore my pugs right?  As much as I do love having my girls, they can sometimes be a bit of a tie down when we want to consider a family vacation or even a few days out of town.

It's not always possible for a family member to watch them and it's hard to find someone to trust to watch our little furry babies while we're away.

Enter DogVacay!!!

You're probably wondering what exactly it is and why you should consider using it?  Let me tell you a little about it.

DogVacay is an online community that connects dog owners with their 20,000 vetted and insured pet sitters across North America, ready to care for your dog like a member of their family.

All reservations include free pet insurance, 24/7 customer support, and daily photo updated of your pooch enjoying a "Vacay" of his own. You can finally travel with peace of mind — at prices half the price of the local kennel!

How it works: 

  • Simply type in your zip code and find a PAWesome sitter in your neighborhood.
  • Schedule a meet ‘n greet to meet your Host, then book your pup’s Vacay and pay online.
  • You can now travel knowing your pup is having the time of his life in a loving home with one on one attention!
  • Receive photo “pup”dates showing how much fun your pup is having, and rest assured knowing each Vacay is covered with our free pet insurance and 24/7 customer care.

DogVacay has already been featured in the Wall Street Journal, the NY Times, Forbes and The Today Show.

I really love the fact that all the reservations include free pet insurance and a daily photo updated.  It's not easy leaving our babies behind and the few times I've had to do it, I was worried sick not knowing how they were and if they were being treated well.

Now, I haven't personally been able to try DogVacay for myself, but we are thinking of planning a family vacation and I love knowing that I have this option for my girls.

But that's not all, now that I've told you how the DogVacay works with regards to your pets while you're away, I will tell you how it works if you want to become a host yourself and enjoy the company of some sweet doggies in your own home.

With holidays just around the corner, I know that a lot of us pet parents are starting to think about the best possible place for our babies to stay while we're away.  Why not give DogVacay a look, it might be that the perfect sitter is just around the corner :)

Okay this is really cool. The kennel is so outrageous here and like you said it's hard to find someone to dog sit for a week. I've already started stressing over what we are going to do with my Foxie when we leave for Florida, next summer!

I'm going to have to give this some serious thought.
