Thrifty Tips for December 11, 2013
One of the reasons my husband and I have cats is it is far easier to travel when you have cats. A friend can drop by feed them, water them and so on. When you have a dog, it is a lot harder. Finding a friend or family member who can watch your pets while you are away is not always easy and your dog may not be too crazy about kennels, but there is a new way that you can maybe find a solution and that is called DogVacay. With DogVacay you can find a pet owner in your area who will take in your pets and love them like you do while you are away. You can see their home, read reviews from others who have had their pets stay at their home, see the kinds of pets that they have to make sure your pets are compatible, and ask all the questions you would like. Your reservation also includes free photo updates and pet insurance. Also, if you are a dog owner who would like to offer your own services, you can sign up to be a host as well to make some extra income. Cool right? Oh! And if you are say traveling with your pet but seeing some site that doesn't allow pets, you can often find hosts at DogVacay who will take your pet in for the day while you do some special site seeing.
