When dog lovers travel, DogVacay keeps their pups out of impersonal kennels and connects them with responsible canine hosts in their city. Instead of awaiting their owner's return in a kennel cage, dogs get the run of the house along with daily walks, challenging games of Scrabble, and playtime with well-socialized animals. Owners can browse thousands of profiles from professional pet-sitters, retired veterinarians, and fellow dog lovers based on location, home size, and family pets. Each host undergoes a five-step vetting process that includes an online application, reference checks, a phone interview, online training, and community reviews. Dog sitters also offer day care, walking, and training, and some claim professional credentials such as training expertise or pet CPR. To ensure peace of mind, DogVacay provides insurance and emergency vet services as well as photo updates of the dog’s stay.

Southern Breeze Equestrian Center is a utopia for horse lovers, where expert instruction turns whinnying tenderfeet into sure-footed saddle-masters. With lessons devised for all ages and experience levels, this full-service facility fills its four riding arenas with enthusiastic forays into horsemanship. Southern Breeze’s 45-minute private lesson ($65), offered Mondays through Saturdays with one of the center's experienced assistant trainers, is tailored to individual levels of equine expertise. First-time riders spend some ground time looking under the hood, using humanpower to harness horsepower before embarking on their first longe-line ride. Experienced straphangers will work on enhancing their skills, mastering the maneuvers of dressage horses or leaping over 20 burning busses.
