Using a Pet Sitter or Boarding Kennel When You Travel


We love traveling with our dogs — but sometimes we know it’s just not possible. Some travel situations mean your dog would be left out of much of the fun. Or perhaps you’ll have to fly to the destination and, like us, you have a large dog that you’d never fly since he’s too large to travel at your feet. Or perhaps you’re visiting a destination that either doesn’t permit dogs or has too many requirements to make it worthwhile for your short trip.

When your dog can’t accompany you on a trip, your options include pet sitters (in your home or theirs) and pet kennels (which have evolved to the point of luxury hotels, in many cases). It’s important to start the search early, though; both the best pet sitters and best pet hotels book up early!
