Pet Boarding vs In Home Pet Sitting

 "Should I leave my pet at a boarding facility or should I have someone come to my home and take care of my pet?" The answer to this question totally depends on you and your pet's life style. I know that I am biased since I offer in-home pet sitting for my clients, it is a no brainer for me.


But, lets look at both options and then you can really decide on which choice suits you and your pet's needs the best. 


Pet Boarding: 

  • Attention from the staff at the facility 

  • Peace of mind that your pet(s) are being supervised

  • Some kind of socialization with other pets (possibly)

  • Short walks for dogs (usually 10 minutes at a time)

  • More cost effective for 1 pet

In-Home Pet Sitting:

  • Personalized 1-on-1 attention for your pet(s)

  • Peace of mind that your pet is at home in his/her familiar environment

  • Longer walks for dogs (usually 30 min-1 hour) if requested

  • Daily updates from your pet sitter with photos

  • Your pet sitter can come anywhere from 1-3 times a day if needed

  • Customizable services

  • More cost effective for 2 or more pets

These are a short list of benefits for both options. I know that our dog Addison, would not do well in a boarding situation because she is quite timid around other dogs but, really blossoms around other humans. We have a dog walker that comes to walk her at my family's home whenever I am busy with my own dog walking and pet sitting clients. I appreciate the fact that I get to come home and see her happy face right away!
