Rover Professionals Care For Your Pets Like Their Own

Planning our vacation includes find the best place to stay, picking out a few sights to see, and mapping our route. Along with making arrangements for someone to keep an eye on the house, we also want a professional who is caring to watch over our pets, one choice is Rover.

Rover lets you board your dog in a loving home while we're away. With the help of their Concierge, they quickly find the best host in your neighborhood, which makes Rover perfect for last minute bookings. If your dog requires special care such as medications, they can also match your dog with the perfect host.

Rover suggest 5 items to pack when you home-board your dog:

1. Make A List Of Instructions: Take the time to write a short list of any special instructions you may have for your pet host regarding feeding times, portions for food, the phone number of your local vet, and where you can be reached in case of emergencies. And as always make sure Fido's collar fits him properly and that all tags are up-to-date with your cell phone number and address.

2. Pack Your Dog's Usual Foo d: Our dogs, and cats for that matter, get can food in the morning. We know from experience that they can get an upset stomach if we change their brand of dog food, so be sure to pack plenty of your dog's usual food for their stay. For dry food, a Tupperware container works best and you can leave wet food in the can. Just make sure you have packed enough for your entire stay, and perhaps a little bit extra just in case!

3. List any medications or supplements that they may need. New environments may trigger existing allergies, so even if your pet doesn't need their medication all the time, it's better to have it on hand to be safe.

4. Pack Two Leashes: It's always a good idea to pack more than one leash just in case your host loses one. You can pack a short leash and one that has an extendable line for areas where your dog might want to get some exercise.

5. Send Some Of Your Pet's Favorite Toys: You definitely want to take the time to pack your dog's bed and favorite toys so that they have some comforts from home. Be kind to your host, and leave the squeaky toys at home if you can so your dog doesn't drive his weekend host crazy! An old t-shirt that smells like you can also make for a great cuddle toy for your dog while you are apart!

Rover offers peace of mind when traveling because because you know someone who cares is watching your pets.

Pets are like caring for children; you know when they're unhappy. Rover's professionals take the time to listen to any of your concerns, and can respond to an emergency while your gone. Rover is an affordable way to ensure your pets are cared for while away enjoying a memorable vacation or holiday weekend getaway.
