When you go on holiday leaving your four-legged, fur-babies at home, it is of utmost importance to make sure that they are well looked after while you’re away, especially if you do not have family nearby to look after them for you.
My girlfriend and I do not go away without our dogs very often, but when we do I must admit that I used spend most of my time stressing about how our two pups were doing at home without us. However, by finding the right people to look after our dogs (and our home), we eliminated the need to worry.
We are very lucky to have a number of options at our disposal in Cape Town, and for those looking for the perfect choice for them, I am going to explore three of the doggy hotels and accommodation options:
For those who would prefer to have their fur-babies looked after 24 hours a day, atFrits is the perfect doggy care option for both you and your pets. Offering a hotel experience fit for a king, with a number of ‘hotel rooms’ based on cute themes and including a comfy bed, your beloved babies will be looked after at this home-away-from-home while you’re away, meaning there would be no reason for you to worry.
Catering for your dog’s every need, all atFrits rooms include free day care, group play sessions, potty breaks, and a webcam – yes, you read that right – that will ensure you’re up to date on everything your dog gets up to, and everywhere they go.
Pet Sitters Cape Town is an amazing agency that work in a number of areas in Cape Town, meaning no matter where you live there is a professional, licensed and certified pet sitter near you.
This professional agency finds out what your wants and needs are, and then pairs you with the pet sitter they feel will gel best with both you and your fur-babies.
They have a number of different packages that start at just R99 a day, all of which include your pets staying at home in their comfort zone. What’s more, all of your pets (if you have more than one), plants, pool and post will be looked after, poo picks and perimeter checks will be done daily, as well as administering any medications that your pets need.
Although not an overnight accommodation option, for those pets who do not like being alone at home all day while you’re at work – it’s only natural for them to pine for you sometimes – BowHaus offers a daycare option where your dog can romp, learn, play, and waggle every day with a number of other fur-babies their size.
BowHaus has both indoor and outdoor daycare facilities, meaning that rain or shine they will be safe, sound, dry, and warm at all times. Their building has been designed to accommodate a variety of canine personalities, meaning that each and every dog – regardless of whether they are shy or anxious – will find their experience at BowHaus stress-free. What’s more they will be able to get in some exercise while making new friends.
Our pets deserve nothing but the best at all times. Ensure that they are safe and sound when you go away on your next holiday, or while you’re at work by making sure they are being taken care of by the best people possible.
