When you can’t take your best friend with you

Your dog is a part of your family unit, but what happens when your romantic getaway or holiday plans aren’t dog-friendly?
How do you care for your dog-child?

From dog-loving neighbors who will come to your home, to a natural paradise filled with creeks and patches of grassland, you can find lodging as unique as your pet. Dogs can now feel like they’re on a vacation of their own

If roaming wild and free in the great outdoors, while still closely monitored, is your pup’s cup of tea, we suggest Thorn Creek Kennel in Kamas. Duffy McCabe, owner of Thorn Creek, says it’s an adventure camp for dogs. The dog clients at Thorn Creek have free play three times a day; morning, late afternoon and nighttime before bed.

Perhaps your pup needs the same routine, same house, same yard. If that’s the case, we recommend Rover.com. You can find a local dog-sitter who will stay at your house. Carie Grisby, a highly ranked dog-sitter on Rover.com, says the service is unique because you can choose your best matched sitter. When Grisby goes to a client’s home, she ensures your dog is comfortable and always sends picture updates.

Your dog might need specialized care and an array of services under the same roof. If you want to pick up your fur baby five minutes from the Salt Lake airport, Utah Dog Park is your place. With a veterinarian clinic,an on-site groomer and live web cams of the facility, your pet will be in good hands.
