From planned vacations in peak season to impromptu weekend getaways, one challenge always arises for pet owners – what to do with the family dog? While many pets do great in traditional out-of-home pet care settings, others do not – including older pets, puppies, dogs who’ve not been spayed or neutered, those who haven’t been socialized with many other dogs, and dogs who simply feel more comfortable in a home setting. Now pet owners can travel guilt-free with DogVacay, an online site that connects pet owners with loving “Hosts,” who care for dogs in their homes over short daytime stints or weeklong visits.
Don’t have a dog? You can still get involved! DogVacay currently has openings for dog sitters, who get paid to cuddle with canine cuties! Many top sitters on DogVacay (known as “Hosts”) are Moms who find that pet sitting is a low-stress and creative way to do what you love from home while earning extra money. DogVacay Hosts from all over have told us hosting pups has helped them spend more time with their families, more than cover holiday costs, pay for school, and save up for weddings or travel. Not to mention, what a great way to expose kids to the experience of taking care of a dog, without the lifelong commitment!
So how does hosting through DogVacay work exactly?
DogVacay makes it easy to apply to become a Host. Simply create a free profile, set your own rates, and decide which dogs to take and when to take them. DogVacay’s Host Happiness team then works with you to guide you through the Host vetting process. The team also helps you with everything from changing profile pictures to handling emergency situations. Moreover, DogVacay Hosts rest easy knowing every Vacay is covered by free pet insurance and 24/7 customer care.
Here are a few more reasons to consider joining DogVacay as a Host.
