I need a puppy sitter…..

I'm going away for a destination wedding from November 12th thru the 17th. I need someone with a Basenji and the knowledge of a Basenji to take care of my pup while I'm gone. I'm just not feeling the love of a professional pet sitter or boarding him at a "doggie hotel." Any suggestions or takers?

Thanks,
Mick's Mom, Val

Val,

Although I will have school during that time, I would be willing to pet sit for another basenji. I have been considering getting a friend for my basenji once he gets past his teenager period so experience sitting for another one would be helpful. The only thing would be that I would need to pet sit for your guy in my home and I live in New Bedford Mass which is probably about 5 hours from you. If you'd be willing to meet halfway (and if your guy travels well), then maybe I could help out.

I am a bit far away and me pet sitting for Mick might be more of a pain getting him here than a help for you. If you can't however find anyone closer, then let me know. shoconnor@hotmail.com

Pet sitters at home are good…but we have a place where dogs have like a kennel, doggie day care type of place, and its a great area to have your put learn about other dogs, other people and help him get socialized.
I don't know if you have something like that, but check around your areas, they are bonded, have secure areas for the dogs to play and run, etc...

Shannon~Thank you so much for the offer. You are an amazing and caring person for even offering. It means so much to me and my family. Without any hesitation you would drive half way and meet me. This alone is an amazing act. I will never forget your kindness.
My husband's cousin has offered to take our B and he has another dog which would help.
I knew I could count on this forum for help. I feel a special bond with all the members and I truly enjoy reading all your stories and sharing in your day to day experiences with our furbabies.
