Summer is here and time for family vacations. If you can't take your dog with you, what do you do? There are a few options for your dog ranging from in-home care to a wide range of boarding options. This is one of the times you want a good referral. Ask friends and neighbors for referrals. Check the Internet for local listings of pet hotels, pet sitters, boarding kennels, doggie day care, or veterinary hospitals. Call and ask your veterinarian who they recommend.
Before booking the reservation, check out the facility before leaving your precious pet. Go online and read reviews by other people who have used the services of the particular location. Yelp and Google have reviews from people who have used the services you are looking for. Visit the location ahead of time, asking to see the areas where your pet would stay while you’re gone. Take your dog to stay there a day or two to see how they acclimate. My favorite type is a cagefree doggie daycare where your dog can interact with other dogs under the supervision of an employees the play.
Consider what type of services will best suit your family and dog. Many local vets offer boarding services for pets that need medical support while you’re gone. There are many safe, clean and well-run places, where your pet will be happy and well cared for, but do your homework first.
