If you are a pet owner, you know that a strong bond develops between you and the pet. You feel bad about staying away from your pet for a long time. However, you can’t take your pet everywhere, for example, on vacation.
The good news is that pet ownership is on the rise, and owners can expect fair care and treatment for their pets. Here are some pet care options available when you plan to go on a holiday.
Pet sitters know how to take care of the pet when you are away. The good thing about hiring a pet sitter is that your dog will be in a familiar environment. So, it will be comfortable for him. You should hire someone you can trust. You can take recommendations from your friends or family.
You can also find trusted companies that provide good pet sitters. These companies always do a background check of these pet sitters before hiring them. The pet sitter will take your dog for daily walks, feed them regularly, and even play with your pet.
Kennels or Catteries
You can choose a kennel or cattery for your pet. Here your pet will stay with the other pets and have a good time. But if your pet has a behavioural issue, then this is not the right option for you. Before choosing a kennel, consider your pet’s individual needs.
Make sure that the kennel policies and laws for admission are strict, especially related to vaccination. The pets that are admitted here must be vaccinated so that no disease is spread. It is necessary to visit the kennel personally to see if the facility is hygienic and has everything that your pet needs.
Some people love pets so much that they don’t mind looking after other’s pets along with their own. If you know someone who does so, you can send your pet to that person’s house for the days you won’t be home.
This is sometimes a better option than pet sitting because you won’t have to worry about the security of your house. You can lock your room and go on vacation with a peaceful mind.
Take The Pet Along
Now many airlines and other transportation allow pets. You will also find pet-friendly hotels. So, taking the pet with you can be a good option too. Many holiday destinations now have pet-friendly options. You can choose your destination according to what will be suitable for your pet.
Family, Friends, or Neighbours

These options have their pros and cons. You need to analyse the various options before choosing suitable accommodation for your pet.
