However, pet owners who don’t want to leave their beloved pets in a dedicated hotel, for various reasons, can try pet sitters. There are several online platforms that can help owners find the best pet sitters, such as Pet-me.ro, Caretopets.com or Trustedhousesitters.com. Pet sitters & dog walkers can also be found at Tinaspets.eu or Coditafericita.ro.
Tip: All pet owners want their pets to have the best time when they’re not around, so it would be better to try to find more information about a pet hotel or sitter/walker from a third party such as other pet owners who have tried these services or the comments and ratings on the pet hotels’ Facebook pages.
