Going away? Read How to Give Your Pet a Positive Boarding Experience
Give Your Pet a Positive Boarding Experience – It can be tough to leave your pet behind. Here are some tips to help both you and your pet have a smooth transition and a happy boarding experience.
In the winter months, many families make plans for their spring or summer vacation. While you are making plans for yourself, don’t forget your pet! Book their spot early so you don’t run the risk that the kennel will be full when you need it.
Be sure your pet’s shots are up to date. Bring the shot record with you or drop it off ahead of time so you don’t forget during your last minute packing and preparations.
If your pet needs medication, be sure to bring it, complete with dosing information. Rest assure that the kennel owners are looking out for your pet’s health while you are away. For example, at Big Times Kennel, the workers are vigilant about your pet’s health. One customer noted that when she boarded her older Siberian husky, who had medical issues, she had no worries. She knew that if there was a problem, Big Times Kennel would contact the veterinarian immediately.
Stay positive while dropping off your pet so that your pet knows this is a comfortable place to be. Your confidence can help them have a positive view of the kennel.
Getting to know you
Write down or be ready to tell your pet’s likes and dislikes. Do they prefer to be inside or outside? Do they like to sleep with bedding? What about toys?
Include their typical eating and feeding habits. You can even bring along special food if you would like. Maintaining a consistent routine will ease your pet’s stay.
Feel free to call and check up on your pet to ease your mind while you are away. Dog kennel owners love pets and understand what it is like to miss them and worry about them. If you need to call to hear they are doing well for your own peace of mind, that’s perfectly fine.
