Does Dog Boarding Stress You Out? Let a House Sitter Remove the Worry

19th December 2019

Holiday preparations can sometimes feel like the holiday isn’t worth it. Putting aside all the searching for the right destination, place to stay, and then the demands of travelling if you’re going a long way, there’s also the big question about what to do with your dog. The same questions keep spinning round your mind, ones about kennels being intimidating, not enough love and attention being given, getting her food right while you’re away, and making sure she gets her daily walk.

Should you choose the dog boarding option, it’s likely you’re only going to be adding to your stress. Dogs get pretty sad when their owners go away and being dropped off at an unfamiliar setting such as a boarding kennel doesn’t help.

Want a pet loving, professional house sitter to take care of both your dog and home while you’re away?

There’s a way to save yourself the distress of saying goodbye to your dog at a boarding kennel. And the best part about it is that your house is looked after too! 

How The Housesitting Company can give you peace of mind

The Housesitting Company only lets a Ministry of Justice checked sitter with no past or pending criminal convictions take care of your home and your pet while you’re away.

The sitter would have also supplied at least two written references from previous house sits, landlords, employers or referees. That means your home and your dog (or cat, or donkey or horse, there’s quite a list of pets that can be looked after) will be in the safest of hands.

And that means you’ll get to relax and enjoy your holiday. How wonderful is that?
