When we leave town

20131019-075418.jpg
It’s always sad when we travel and we can’t take the Snowieners with us. After searching for different options, a friend suggested to try in-home pet sitting and it has worked incredibly well for us.
The Snowieners go out on walks and we get pictures of their adventures.

They also get socialized and it’s fun to watch them make friends.

When I get these pictures I know they are having a blast and helps with the guilt of being far from them.

Our pet sitter is a keeper!

Do you have a good sitter in your area? How did you find him/her?

Recently our pet blogger friend from Simply Shaye brought to our attention DogVacay. Have you ever tried it?

Our sitter is not advertised in DogVacay yet. We’ll suggest she joins it.

    The snowieners look like they are having so much fun! 😀 We recently took Donna to check out a daycare, and it is only when we see her mixing with other dogs that we realise how much she needs this to gain more confidence in a situation where there are many dogs around. Have a great, guilt-free vacation! Humans definitely need breaks too! 🙂

      Daycare has worked for us too. They are confident around big and small dogs. They also come home very tired.

    They really are having a good time!

    When we had our Greyhound (long time ago) we used to take her to a home that was recommended by the local Greyhound rescue group. Sophie loved it so much that many times it was tough getting her out the sitter’s door to come home with us! lol! She loved her “Uncle Wayne and Aunt Kate” and playing with all the other GHs.

      Aww. It is incredible how you can know if they like spending time with people/ dogs. Thanks for sharing.

      They love their sitter. And I think they have a crush on the chocolate lab! Lol. Have a great weekend!
