December is a big month for travelling here in the U.S. With Hanukkah on December 16,, Christmas on December 25, and New Year’s Eve right at the tail-end of the month, it’s no wonder that this time of year get can a little crazy. If you’re planning on leaving the Island for the holidays, and you have pets at home, that means it’s time to start deciding on what sort of pet service you’d like to look after your animal companions.

Here on Long Island there are many different kinds of pet services, boarding options and other choices to mull over when choosing who to look after your furry friends. While some people prefer just dropping off their pets at a trusted nearby kennel, some people would rather their pets stayed at home.  For those who have pets they’d rather not have to relocate to a kennel, pet-sitting services may be the route to go. The pet-sitter will simply drop by, make sure all of your pet’s needs are being taken care of, and your pets never even have to leave the familiar, comfort of home.
