Red Rover, Red Rover....Send a dog-sitter right over!
May 1st, 2015 by: Misty Miloto

Along with summer, comes summer vacation! And while we’d all love to take our beloved fido with us, that may not always be possible.If you’ve ever had to board your dog at a kennel, then you know the expense involved (and the sometimes unpleasant experiences that your pup has endured). Enter — a nationwide network of locals in your area, offering inhome dog-boarding, dog-sitting and dog-walking services. Simply log on, search for a dog-sitter, get to know them over a meet and greet, and then book a stay at their house or yours (for about half the price of a kennel). 

While you’re away, your sitter will provide text and photo updates so you can be sure your pup is well cared for and happy. Even better, the company offers 24/7 customer support and vet consultation, sitter background checks, a mobile app and premium pet insurance (emergency vet bills are covered at up to $25,000 per claim after a $250 deductible). And if you’re willing to be a pet sitter, it’s a great way to earn a little bit of extra income.
