I use a pet sitter (so very rarely, lol), but...so worth it. My dogs stay with her, but she takes a very, VERY limited number of dogs, all very well known to her. They stay in her home, much like Bug. She is a vet tech at our clinic, and my dogs have known her all their lives. They LOVE staying with Jenny. Richter, especially, doesn't really like coming home sometimes. His "girlfriend', an Aussie (what IS it with those Aussies????) lives their. He thinks Paulie is just about the best thing on earth. He stayed with Jenny when we took our first vacation when he was less than a year old and he fell in LOVE with Paulie...she was bred by our vet, who shows and breeds lovely Aussies...he kind of has had a thing for them ever since!
It's great to have someone like that to take care of our dogs. She lives really close to me, too. They have a bigger yard than they do at home, Jenny lets them sleep with her, they have playmates...no vaccines required that I wouldn't already give, plus, I have zero worries about care, because she knows everything I do, and can care for them at least as well as I do. And a bonus is that if, worst case, something DOES happen, she can get them to my vet, and she is authorized on our account to do any treatment. She and my vet both know what I would do and it's a good feeling to not worry when we're gone.
