Pet Boarding vs Pet Sitter

Pet Boarding vs Pet Sitter – As a pet parent, you know how difficult it can be to find a reliable pet sitter while you are away on vacation. Ideally, you want someone who can give your precious pooch or kitty as much care and attention as you do.

dog and cat snuggleAt Big Times Kennel, we understand your concern and that is why we can offer you the perfect solution!

While boarding with us, our overnight guests will enjoy his or her own safe space which is cleaned throughout the day, sanitized daily, and covered by a medical-grade air purification system.

Although a pet sitter has good intentions in caring for your pet, they only have a limited amount of time available. Our dedicated staff of pet lovers will devote as much time, care, and attention as needed to Fido or Fluffy to assure their well-being throughout their stay.

The canine crew has a routine as follows:

  • 7:30 am – Let out
  • 8:00 am – Breakfast
  • 11:00 am – Treats
  • 4:00 pm – Dinner
  • 6:00 pm – Treats and tucked in
  • Self-replenishing water supply
  • Secure double-fenced access to the outdoors 11 hours/day rain or shine

Our feline friends enjoy:

  • Fresh kitty litter boxes which are changed daily
  • Endless supply of cat food and treats
  • Fresh water supply
  • Expandable kitty condos for climbing and stretching

Also, if your pet requires medication (other than shots), you can be sure that the correct dosage will be given at the designated time as per your instructions.

We will monitor your pet’s activity, behavior, health, and safety. Should your beloved pet at first experience some anxiety, not eat, or develop diarrhea, we know how to handle these issues quickly and professionally. Plus, we have an excellent rapport with vet offices in the area should an emergency arise.

Pet Boarding vs Pet Sitter – SAFETY IS A PRIORITY!

Pets boarding with us are required to be up to date on immunizations and are housed in his/her own space so there is no fighting among our guests. Also, cats and dogs are housed in separate facilities so one does not cause the other any stress.

Pet Boarding vs. Pet Sitter – By choosing Big Times Kennel, there’s no risk of possible conflict with your pet sitter should something unfortunate happen while your precious pet is in their care. Nor will you have to scramble for a solution if the sitter has an emergency and cannot continue caring for your pet.
