Dog Sitting

What is dog sitting?

You’re planning on going away for a few days or a few weeks and are getting concerned about who will take care of your dog. Have you ever considered dog sitting? That could be just the right solution.

Dog sitting: the best solution to keep your dog happy

Dog sitting, either in-home or with a host family, is the perfect solution for dogs that don’t like the company of other pets. It’s also perfect for those that are shy, have special needs or disabilities or for those that hate being alone. Dog sitting allows your dog to stay in its home or in a homely environment where you know it’ll be loved and well taken care of.

Dog sitting in your home

This is by far the most comfortable solution for all dogs. It takes away all the stress involved with changing places and allows your dog to live in the same way during your absence.

Dog sitting with a host family

A good alternative to kennels, dog sitting with a host family offers your dog a homely environment while you’re away. Holidog makes it easy for you to connect with pet sitters near you and find the perfect host family for your dog.
