    Default Bully babysitting suggestion!

    I posted this under the poll section about vacations, but I thought I would post it here for more to read. As many of you know, my husband, daughter and I are going away on a cruise in January. I am very excited, but I have been sick about what to do with our Tubbers. I have researched a kennel, but I am not kean on the idea of him being in a kennel all day, everyday for a week. I can't rely on my parents because they are going with us. I know we haven't been the only ones who run into this situation where we have to leave our bullies and are worried about their care. I thought about possibly putting something on here for bully babysitting. We could post that we are looking for a bully babysitter, the area we live in and the dates we need help. This way we cold hook up with someone in our area who we can trust with our bully care while we are gone. This way we could also schedule a play date before hand to make sure our bullies get along. Just a suggestion!

    Hi! Just a suggestion, but I have one of the vet techs from our vet's office stay at our house and dog sit. Its more expensive, but Doughnut enjoys being home and its someone he's seen before. Plus, our house isn't empty for an entire week so its worth it to us! Good luck!

    I think that's a good idea, finding someone on here close by that would keep them, also @DoughnutsMom also had a good idea, sometimes the vet techs do house and dog sitting. Just another avenue to explore.

    I would love to find a familiar EBN member but I really do like that idea about the vet tech. I may just ask my favorite one at our vet's office if she does that. Thanks for the tip!

    Our vet techs do petsitting too! In fact..one was so successful..she quit and opened her own petsitting business! It is well worth the price difference!

    Pet Paradise or Camp Bow Wow are also good options if they have them in your area - they let the dogs play a lot and you can see them through their web cams. But yeah, having an EBN bully-sitting club would be cool!
