Average Dog Sitting Rates & How To Find A Reliable Pet Sitter

Most of us pup owners need a reliable dog sitter from time to time. We hate to leave our furry friends in others’ care, but it’s usually inevitable. Whether you need a pet sitter regularly while you’re at work, on vacation, or for occasional needs, it can be tricky to figure out how to fit the cost into your budget for the best pup caregiver you can find. We’ll share with you the average rates you can expect to pay for professional dog-sitting services and less-expensive pet-sitting options. We can also help you choose the best option for your specific needs. For example, if you’re going on vacation, dog sitters are typically more expensive than boarding.

Best Dog Car Barrier: For SUVs, Back Seats, Front Seats, Trucks, & More

Does your dog like to explore the vehicle while driving down the road? Your pup probably starts in the back seat, then meanders to the front seat with you (making sure to whack you in the face with his tail), then wanders to the back and continues this pattern until you reach your destination. Even though it’s nice to have your pet play co-pilot, it isn’t safe for either of you. We know your dog doesn’t mean any harm, and that he’s just so excited to be on the road with you. However, this constant movement can be dangerous for you, your pup, and other drivers on the road because you could get distracted. A car pet barrier could be the solution you’ve been looking for to help keep everyone safe.
