Pawesome Life: Leave Your Pets At These Boarding Centres On Your Next Holiday

If you’re a pet parent, chances are, you’re always in a dilemma before going on a vacation and rightly so. Leaving your furry babies in hands of strangers can be extremely daunting, and stressful, unless you find a friend or family member who steps in (which isn’t always plausible). To make things easier for you, we’ve rounded up the trusted pet boarding centres and pet sitters you can rely on when you’re out of town, leaving your babies in safe hands.

Pawfect Life, Andheri East

Pawfect life is one of our favourite pet boarding centre in Andheri East. Run by Niharika, who loves dogs and everything about them, she assures the pet parents their babies are in safe hands.

They charge INR 500 per day (until 11pm), and if you’d like to leave your pooch for a night stay, then it’s INR 700 including the meals. If your pooch is going to staying there for a longer period of, say a week or so, they will give the doggo a warm and fuzzy complimentary bath. Otherwise, INR 850 is charged for a bath service (including nail clipping, ear cleaning).

Pet Project

Pet Project is for all animals and not limited to just the cute doggos. Do you have a pet bird, or a pet turtle or a pet hamster? Well Pet Project will sort out your woes for you.

It was started off as a platform to make pet parents and potential pet sitters/hosts meet. All you have to do is, sign up with them, and you can volunteer to host a pet, or find hosts for them. The best thing is, they will be regular homestays of people who’d love to take care of your pet while you’re away.

This Powai dog centre will let the pet parents be on a guilt-free vacation. Bark Inn is a warm place, owing to the owners themselves having three pooches to begin with. You can expect your dogs to be treated like they are at home, be fed-on time and walked on time.

They’ll also get play time with other dogs (depending on the temperament), and they offer medical care, too, in case of emergencies.
