While we would all love to be with our pets all the time, this is not always possible. Sometimes we need to work long hours or, when we’re lucky, a vacation comes up. When you have to be out of the house and your furry friends can’t come with you, having the right pet sitter or boarding options can make your pet more comfortable and give you peace of mind. These are some of the best pet sitters and pet boarding houses in Kelowna, BC.

Prepare your pet for the sitter

Whether you hire a pet sitter to care for your pets while you’re away, or you send your furry friends to a kennel, preparing them to be away from you can be tricky. Whether your pet has underlying health conditions, or they’re simply anxious when you’re not around, meeting with the person who will be caring for them before you go is a great idea. A meet and greet will allow your pet to become familiar with them and give you a chance to provide any useful information. If you have concerns, however, it can also be helpful to book a virtual vet appointment for advice.
