Going on vacation or a business trip and leaving the house empty? When you have dogs and cats at home, this can be a problem. There are a lot of options for pet owners when it comes to this. You could book them into a pet boarding house while you’re away. If you’re in the area, the pet spa in Plymouth MI is a good option for this. Many pet owners are apprehensive about leaving their precious pets with strangers, but if you read reviews and testimonials and go to see the facilities for yourself, you can rest assured that your pets will be in good hands while you’re away.

The second option is to hire a house sitter. Depending on how much you pay, you can either get someone to sleep over and stay in your home while you’re gone so your pets aren’t alone for any extended period of time, or you could pay someone to come and check on them a certain number of times in a day. If your pets are independent enough to spend the night alone and to be left alone or hours at a time, this could work. If not you could pay for someone to stay over if  you manage to find a trusted person that you’d feel comfortable having in your home while you’re gone.

If you’re going on vacation, the final option is to take your pets with you! There are plenty pet friendly camping and other vacation destinations. This can be a bit trickier with cats, but dogs will love going with you to the beach or any other outdoorsy vacation destination. If this is an option for you, it’s definitely worth considering.
