Experienced pet sitter!
Please don't put your dog in a kennel! Next time you travel, I'll watch your little guy or gal. I am a dog lover and am currently saving to have the means to take care of my own pet.
I've been dog sitting for over 10 years. Anything from Pit Bulls, or boxers, to a timid rescue German Shepard, to smaller Shinzo.
Don't put your dog though the sadness of missing you and personal attention ...
