Before leaving home for an extended period of time, pet parents make plans for the safety, comfort, and care of their dog. In the stress of making travel plans pet parents must also choose between a kennel and a Pet Hosting. Besides being costly, kennels offer limited activity, close quartered confinement, and exposure to disease, all of which can leave both you and your dog stressed out. When you reserve a pet host in Ballarat VIC through Mad Paws the following benefits will reassure you that Pet Hosting is the right choice for you and your dog.
Safety First - Your dog will be cared for in a loving intimate setting, not confined with many other animals. With Mad Paws the Pet Hosting environment would have the option of a sitter with a few well socialized pets, or just your pet alone with the sitter. This would be set up to meet the individual needs of your dog.
Reasonable Rates – Pet Hosting is an affordable alternative to kennels and allows you financial options with our pet hosts so you can choose the location/provider that meet your needs.
No Cages – The last place you want to leave your dog is behind bars in a kennel, which can compound stress for your dog and create worry for you. With a pet host in a caring home environment your pet will be free and happy.
Regular Routine – In caring for your pet we know maintaining their daily schedule contributes greatly to their happiness. This is why, before our services begin, we encourage you to meet with the pet host so they can understand and implement the normal routine. This stability ensures your dog’s comfort and health.
Home Setting - Pet Hosting provides an environment similar to your own home. This allows your dog to settle in and become comfortable in their surroundings in a short amount of time.
Personal Attention – The quantity and quality of time your pet host gives your dog cannot be matched in a kennel. In Pet Hosting your pet will not be an animal to be checked on periodically, but instead will be interacting, playing and hanging out with a trusted and reliable caregiver/friend and will be a part of their home activity.
