Tips for Choosing the Right Dog Boarding Facility for Your Pet

When you go on holiday or need to travel for business, it’s good to choose your dog boarding facility for your pet. This can ensure he or she will not get lonely or bored as long as you’re away and subsequently, start to claw at the furniture or even harm itself. A dog boarding facility will also mean that you know your pet is looked after properly; there is no threat of a neighbor forgetting to avoid by to refill their food dish or let them out of the house.

Like daycare facilities for children, dog boarding facilities will all vary in quality and amenities offered, and in their own requirements. Note a few important factors when choosing a dog boarding facility. Visit:

1. Your pet’s vaccinations

Very often a puppy boarding facility will have a list of vaccinations that your pet will be required to have before they take them in, even overnight. It’s good to have your paperwork prepared to prove your pet has been vaccinated as they may request copies. If you fail to find your paperwork, contact your veterinarian and ask if he or she kept copies, as they routinely have them on file.

2. Grooming

Dogs need regular grooming so it is good to look at a dog boarding facility that offers this service. A couple of two benefits to this: you get the grooming looked after and never have to make a separate visit to a groomer or having them come to your house. The other advantage is a dog often bonds with somebody who grooms her or him, as grooming is usually very calming and incredibly relaxing to dogs.

In the event that you choose a facility that includes dog grooming, you understand this done and can also be confident that your dog may become more more comfortable with the groomers and handlers at the facility.

3. Aggressive breeds

Most dog boarding facilities encourage aggressive breeds of dogs, but it’s good to notice if indeed they have separate rooms or facilities for dogs that should be kept to themselves. Ask about separate areas or that they schedule dogs to be together in a common area in the yard or indoor facility which means you know your pet will be protected from aggressive breeds, or know that your own aggressive breed won’t cause problems for smaller dogs if she or he is kept at the boarding facility.
