Tips to Finding Local Doggie Day-Care & Boarding.
Our dogs are part of the family yet sometimes when we go on vacation we need to leave them at home. As a property manager at DMK Property Management here in lower Fairfield County, Ct I get asked on a regular basis if I offer such a service. Dealing with tenants, maintenance issues along with rentals and sales keep my days full. But I have found a few good websites that can help pet owner find doggie daycare services be it at their home, another home or boarding house/kennel. It is amazing the services some of these places have such as swim time, private yard, and kennel quarter to private suites with TV’s….. Sometime I wonder who is getting the better vacation.
DogVacay is a website that list local dog sitters who can come to your house or actually take them into their own home. I would recommend visiting sight and getting referrals beforehand… do your due diligence.

For lower Fairfield County I found the cost to run from $45 to $75 per day per animal.
Another great internet tool is Google Maps. In the search option type in your location plus key words such as:-
- Dog boarding
- Dog kennels
- Dog Daycare near Connecticut (worked the best for me)

If you like to take your pooch with you, my two favorite sites are:-
VRBO.com, Vacation Rentals By Owner. Once you type in your location on the next page click on More filters and then choose under Suitability the option Pet Friendly.
If you prefer staying at hotels or B&B’s then BringFido.com is a great site to use. The easy to use interactive map will show you the locations of accommodations which makes planning a trip easy.
Enjoy and have fun and enjoy your vacation.....................
