Dog Kennel vs. Dog Sitter: Advantages of Dog Boarding



As a pet owner, do you ever ask yourself the question: “Should I use a dog kennel or should I hire a dog sitter?” Well, that’s a very good question. Hiring a dog-sitter can certainly have its advantages, and a dog-sitter typically offers you the convenience of coming to your home to care for your dog. However, here at Hillrose Pet Resort, we believe boarding your dog offers some superior and more valuable advantages over hiring a dog-sitter, and we’d like to share those with you.


24/7 Supervision and Care

One of the many perks to choosing a dog kennel over an individual dog sitter is ‘round the clock supervision. We have attending staff members in our facility every day from 7am to 8:30pm. During the downtimes we have residents on site to manage emergencies. From the minute you drop your pet off at Hillrose Pet Resort they will experience positive interaction, mindful monitoring and gentle care their entire stay with us. We also have security cameras located inside and outside the facility. As a dog owner, you can feel comfortable knowing that your dog is always in good hands and enjoying their stay.


A Better Value

One important factor when choosing pet care for your dog is cost. Owner’s want and deserve high quality services at an affordable price. While rates vary across the board, we find that it is generally more cost effective to choose a kennel vs. a dog sitter. Not only do kennels provide you with more for your money, but sometimes offer packages at discounted rates as well. Here at Hillrose, we offer discount packages for long-term boarding reservations.
