    It’s interesting, we had no idea there’s a job called ‘dog sitter’. In our country, Poland, friends or family stay with pets when owners are away.

      Typically, we try to do the same but sometimes people arent available or someone has to cancel last minutes and then there is option like this. :) We also have places called kennels that will watch your dogs for awhile but I havent done enough research on them to see how much interaction your pup gets and I think the animals are typically caged when they aren’t being played with. :)
