Need a Local Dog Host While You Travel? PDF Print E-mail

It’s not like the traditional kennel where you leave Fido locked in a virtual dog prison. A new company has created an online dog hosting service. It matches up local owners with travelers who want their dogs to stay in more natural home settings with just one or two other dogs.

The new website DogVacay.com is sort of a dog online dating service. It lets pet owners look up hosts in their area who’ll care for dogs in their own homes, providing food, exercise and companionship you’d give if you stayed home. The price goes from $25 to $30 per day. DogVacay plans to add other pets, including cats and birds to the service.
