Every pet owner can relate to having worries about their time apart from their pets. Some might even feel tied down at times, However, in-home pet boarding and dog boarding services can be the one that changes the game when it comes to both pet owners and pet lovers who would like to take care of pets.
As a pet owner, there are times when you will need an extra hand in taking good care of your pets, especially when you have to go away to places where you cannot take your pets. Your pets are understandably the most beloved beings on earth for you so it can be quite hard when circumstances force you to leave them in the care of others for a short period of time.
While it might be hard to leave them with others even for a short period of time, no matter where you leave them, the least you can do is not leave them in public kennels or traditional dog boarding places where they are kept in conditions that are often not humane and fair for your dogs to go through. In dog boarding places like those, hygiene and safety cannot be completely guaranteed worry-free for you, barring a few exceptions. So the best thing that you can do for your dog is to leave them in a place where comfort, safety, and personalized attention are guaranteed. What better solution than dog boarding at home where your pet can experience safety and care way more significantly and tangibly than the traditional dog boarding options?

Benefits of In-Home Dog Boarding
- Food and water – In-home pet boarding can make sure that your pet gets their food and water at the proper time. Pet sitters that work within the concept of in-home pet boarding will also make sure that they are constantly vigilant about any other extra care your dog might require and feed them the food that you usually do (if specified). With dog boarding in home, you can also inform them about the pee breaks and their general schedule so their day goes smoothly even when you are not able to be there physically for them.
- Personalized and constant care – When you opt for dog boarding in-home the pet sitter of your choice will make sure that they take care of your dog with utmost care and concern. In addition to that, you can tell them your dog’s little quirks and fancies so they know what to do. While in kennels the sitters will have the responsibility of too many dogs in one space, in-home pet boarding will eradicate that part of the problem and you get the luxury of specifying all your requirements, getting regular updates, and being stress-free about your dog’s condition in general. For your dog, home boarding might also serve well in terms of how free and welcoming the surroundings are, in addition to it being more comforting as they will be staying in actual homes where individuals are dedicated to giving them all the personalized care and concern they deserve to have a happy vacation-like experience, while also ensuring that your pet’s routine is not interrupted to the most extent that they can help
- Regular exercise – For your dog, home boarding can benefit you in deeper and more ways than the obvious ones. Even when you are away from your dog, you cannot afford to let them go on without any exercise routine as they are creatures that thrive on exercise and play. You might have noticed how vital this part is with how excited your dog gets when it is time for their daily walk or exercise time. Since exercising is an extremely vital part of their health and routine, hiring a personalized dog boarding service is immensely beneficial as they can make sure that your dog goes on walks, and/or completes their daily and weekly exercise goals based on their needs without interruption to their routine.
- No dangerous situations – When it comes to dog boarding at home, your dog is assured to have a Pawspace-certified and trusted pet sitter by their side at all times. You will not have to worry too much about your dog getting up to naughty business and being out of control and injuring themselves as the primary job of the person taking care of your dog will be to make sure your pet does not experience any kind of discomfort to any degree. With this form of kennel care for dogs, you have the complete liberty to specifically direct the pet sitter assigned to your pet in terms of what kind of situations might excite your dog and what might make them get aggressive and careless. This way, during their dog boarding stint, they can avoid those particular situations and keep your dog safe at all times.
- No cages – Cages and highly enclosed spaces cannot be a healthy environment for your pet. While it is strongly recommended to never cage your pets at home, it is, unfortunately, a common practice in traditional kennels and dog boarding places. With Pawspace, you are guaranteed a cage-free environment for your pets except for the times (or the dogs) that it is absolutely required after being mentioned and approved by you specifically, in-home pet boarding and this form of kennel care for dogs will ensure that your dog is not caged unnecessarily. They will be free to roam around and play to their heart’s content, ensuring their happiness and health while you are away.
