It sounds like you have some good possibilities already. I would also like to recommend Rover.com, which is a national (U.S.) organization, to find pet sitters in your area. Most will do it in either your home or theirs. I have found several good people in my area who I have checked out and used for pet sitting and daycare. This way Benjamin has been able to get used to them in case I need to make quick arrangements for overnight boarding some time, and he will not need to stay in a strange place. I think Rover does a great job of screening people, and everyone I have met so far has seemed very friendly and responsible. It can be pricey, but I would imagine that people would be willing to make a deal for a long term stay. Good luck!
