Could "DOG SITTING" Help You Get Physically Fit?

This company seems to think so...or hope so at least!  Plus, you can earn a little extra money in the process too!  Plus, using this company could actually save the DOG OWNER some money (dog boarding is so expensive) in letting an individual take care of your animal instead of taking them to an actual BOARDING place or Kennel.

So, what's the deal??


DogVacay that will literally pay you to take in a dog for the weekend. Research shows that dog owners are significantly more active than those who don’t have dogs: they spend at least 30 more minutes exercising per week and scientists have found dogs to be superior walking partners to humans as they can’t complain or talk you out of exercising. 

But what if you can't afford a full-time pet or don’t have the time for one? Better than going to the gym, you can take your weekend puppy on walks, hikes, jogs, and maybe even mingle at the dog park. If you already have a dog, it's a fun way to socialize him and make a few extra dollars on the side.
The site is simple: you post a photo of yourself, your place, your nightly rate, and a few sentences about why you're a great candidate to watch dogs in your neighborhood. Then, dog owners nearby who need a home for their pup while they're out of town can search for free through all the nearby hosts and find the perfect match for their dog. It's cheaper than the kennel, and dog owners feel good knowing their pet is in a real, loving home. The focus of DogVacay is on dog boarding, but people can also sign up to be dog walkers exclusively.

DogVacay was started less than a year ago by an adorable young couple who took a big hit during the recession, and then boarded over 100 dogs in their home as a way to help pay for their wedding. Aaron and Karine are expecting their first child in August - and Karine plans to get the most out of her dogs Rocky and Rambo to take off the baby weight! 


Here is a $10 coupon code off their first boarding, feel free to add it to the post! The code is: SUMMERVACAY

PRETTY COOL, right? CLICK HERE to head over, watch a video about it and possibly sign up to be a part of this awesome company!
