If you feel guilty leaving your dog at the kennel, there is another option.
“The dogs are not in cages; that’s the biggest thing,” said Jose Barcela, a Rover.com dog sitter in Cape Coral.
“If your dog suffers from anxiety or is really sick or old; it’s better, in my opinion, to have someone watching the dog 24/7. This is what I do 24/7, I don’t do anything else,” said Barcela.
Amanda Goodlin, a Cape Coral veteran, has struggled with the idea of leaving her dog at a kennel while away.
“There has been times when I was in the army that I had to kennel them, of course. And it was a horrible feeling,” she described.
“And I never have to worry about that here,” said Goodlin.
