Anna if you want to arrange a playdate with my ollie, let me know. If she stays with a pet sitter, she won't be the only dog. she'll have to man up and get used to her kind .

If you can afford it, there are two websites I can recommend, www.dogvacay.com and www.sittercity.com (under More Services at the bottom) that board your dogs in their home or you can contact pet sitters right out of the yellow pages and check them out. No matter who you find, you have to do references and home checks and compatibility, etc. I occasionally board myself but my guys are 9yo and almost 12yo and wouldn't be very good playmates for a 9 month old puppy!

Unfortunately, good hired care, whether it is in-home boarding or some one taking care of your dog in your home, IS expensive. I try not to think about it, but the dog care for Kodi often exceeds my airfare. Just comes with the package!

Wow! Really puts things in perspective, doesn't it? This is our first time as dog owners and we still are getting used to the fact that a dog is actually a luxury...

Hi, Anna,

I don't like to advertise my services on the Forum, but I am one of the DogVacay.com hosts and live in the East Bay with our two Havanese. Feel free to PM me for more information.

Ah, the cavalry rides in. Sounds like a great option to me.
