I am a professional pet sitter and it is a great idea if you can find someone affordable in your area. Your dog will stay in his own environment, not exposed to any diseases from kennels, the pet sitter will also be able to give your home the lived in look, take in your mail, water your plants ect. I love what I do and am very fortunate that I get to work with animals every day! You can check www.petsit.com for certified, insured pet sitters in your area! I wish I could help if we lived closer! Good Luck!

I'm skeptical about what can be found on the internet (present company excluded), but I'll check out Care.com (thanks Mickeyflower). Also, I'll look into professional pet sitters. Wish me luck, because I'm kind of rural, and therefore might have a tough time finding someone.

And in general, thanks everyone for responding and talking about their pet care situations. It's awfully difficult to think about leaving a pet in the care of someone else. Just knowing that others do it and that it's a good experience for the parents and the pets puts my mind a little at ease.

PS: I'm teen-girl giddy that Kevin was the first to respond.

You say you're in Vancouver - have you heard of Rondivills Kennels? I take my dog there, he's boarded and also is there daily for doggie daycare.

I highly recommend them!
