Finding A Boarding Facility For Dogs


When you go on a vacation, you might not be able to take your dog with you. However, you might not want to leave your dog at home alone or under the care of someone who is not familiar with your furry friend. You can get luxury dog boarding at most kennels, but there are a few things to consider so that your dog receives the best care possible. 

A boarding facility offers a way for your dog to remain safe while you're gone. The dog will be looked after by a caring staff who will take the time to feed and water the dog and play with the dog as well. The facility prevents the stress of being in a car for a long period of time. Look for a facility that has a video service so that you can check up on your pet while you're gone. You should also be able to call and talk to someone about your pet while you're away. If there is any lack of communication, then you might want to avoid placing your dog at that facility and finding one that does let you talk to the staff. 

While at the boarding facility, your dog will receive more attention that he would if he were home alone. You will know that the dog will be fed at least twice a day and receive plenty of water. Most will offer treats as well. Some facilities have times when they can play outside. There could be other dogs that your pet will play with, but most facilities will only let dogs that are of the same size be together so that they are safe. Dogs will be safe and unable to escape while at the facility. 

When you go to the facility, examine the smell. While there will likely be an odor of urine as it is a place where several dogs stay, you don't want to smell something overwhelming as this might be from the staff not keeping the area as clean as possible. Make sure there is enough ventilation and light for the animals. Talk to the staff to see that they care about the animals instead of being there for a job. You can often tell a lot by the type of people who work with the animals.
