School is out for a week (or more), and families/college students are bound for various travel destinations. Depending on your plans, your pet may be accompanying you on your trip. However, flights to foreign countries and long road trips aren’t always the top choice of territorial, travel-wary pets. This year, don’t compromise your plans for spring break. Instead, consider the wonderful benefits of pet boarding – your pet’s home away from home.
The Pet Pamperer
We take great pride in creating a safe haven for pets in our comfortable, quiet boarding facility. It can be very stressful for animals who are away from their beloved people, so every effort is made to ensure the needs of each pet are not only met, but anticipated.
Supervised play time with other guests is paired with lots of individual attention, such as cuddling, brushing, and petting. You can also add on a soothing grooming appointment!
Dogs can participate in activities in our daycare setting for half or full day sessions; high energy levels and mental stimulation are tended to in The Barking Zone. Otherwise, traditional runs are included, and large boarding suites are complete with a television.
Cats are often more sensitive to pet boarding facilities, which is why we designed a space just form them. In this area, felines remain unbothered by dogs; in fact, they have their own private space with an attractive, enticing aquarium.
Right on Schedule
Pet boarding is a convenient choice for those planning to travel over spring break. You won’t have to worry about meal routines, potty breaks, medications, or any potential illnesses or injuries. To be sure, pet boarding provides owners with total peace of mind.
To get the most out of your experience, we offer the following pet boarding preparation checklist:
- Reserve your pet’s spot as soon as you confirm your plans (spring break is one the busiest times for kennels!).
- Tour the facility.
- Book play time activities for a social pet.
- Make sure your pet is current on vaccinations, such as bordetella, distemper, and rabies; you’ll need to provide proof of immunization.
- Be prepared for testing or to meet parasite prevention requirements.
- Gather any special food or medication your pet might need.
- Be sure to ask about the ability to bring personal toys, treats, or comfort items, such as an old shirt with a familiar smell.
A Successful Pet Boarding Experience
Once you have everything lined up for your pet boarding reservation, it’s a good idea to consider the following:
- Exercise your pet before dropping them off.
- Once on the premises, try not to prolong your goodbye. Your pet will pick up on any fear, doubt, stress, or anxiety and may react in kind. We’ll do our best to whisk them away to a fun and rewarding activity so you can depart quickly.
- Upon your return, expect that your pet will need a day or two to re-adjust to life at home with you.
