What to Know About Boarding Your Pet

Family vacations are great! Unfortunately, not every member can participate in family vacations—namely the furry members of the family. Dr. Dave’s Doggy Daycare provides the perfect solution for anyone planning a trip that is in need of care and shelter for their dog or cat. Here is a look at the basics of pet boarding:

What is Pet Boarding?

Pet boarding serves as a stay-cation for your pets while your family is busy having a vacation! Before your trip, you can visit the pet boarding facility to see if it is the right option for your pet. You can drop your pet off with the friendly boarding facility staff and head out for vacation. While you are away, your pet will receive the care and attention he needs to stay healthy and happy until you return to pick him up and go back home.

What Should You Look for in a Pet Boarding Facility?

You can talk to family and friends to find suggestions for local dog boarding facilities. It is also helpful to go online and look at reviews for cat and dog boarding facilities near your home. Finding the right facility is important for making sure your pet receives proper care during your vacation. Look for a clean and well-kept facility to ensure your pet’s safety and health. You should also look at kennel space and ask about features and services to make sure the facility is a good fit for your pet.

How Can You Prepare Your Pet?

Staying in a new place without you can be scary for your pet, even with a great staff and a wonderful facility. Prepare your pet by ensuring he is able to follow basic commands. You should also make the facility aware of any aggression problems, as these might affect whether or not your pet will be admitted. Board your pet during a short trip for his first experience.
