From presidential suites and swimming pools to underfloor heating, here are a few comfortable pet hotels for your dog, cat, rabbit, or others. Remember to show your vaccination records, as some places strictly won’t allow your pet to board without them.
Do you prefer a petsitter who comes to you instead? Oh My Cat and Spare Leash offer pet-sitting services, while the WeChat platform Happy Nest (WeChat ID: HappyNestSH) connects you with pet-loving trainers, sitters, and groomers who all make house calls. There are also two Chinese platforms offering more affordable prices: a mini-program called 嘻猫 (ximao) and 猫巷 (maoxiang), if you have no problem with the language.
