Here at Road Trips For Families, we talk a lot about traveling with kids, but what about the furrier members of the family? Certainly there are some pets that can hop in the car and hit the road, but for many pets the best option for all parties involved is for them to stay home. Finding a quality sitter for your pets can be just as fraught as finding one for your kids (after all, people call them “fur babies” for a reason), and for many families it is a major factor in how much and how far they will travel. Luckily, there is a service for pet parents that removes all the worry and guesswork from finding excellent pet care: Rover.com
