Board Your Pet Over the Holidays

Whether you will be away for the holidays or are hosting a large gathering, you may need to board your pet. If you haven’t boarded your pet before, searching for dog kennels can feel like a very intimidating task to add to your holiday to-do list. However, there are steps you can take in advance to help make holiday pet boarding easier to handle. Here are some tips to help you plan ahead.

Holiday Pet Boarding

The first thing you need to do is research your local dog kennels to find a good choice for your holiday pet boarding needs. Jump online and research options for holiday pet boarding, and then read about the services each dog kennel offers. Some may offer outdoor runs and housing, while others may keep pets indoors. It is important to choose a kennel that meets the needs of your pup.

Once you have a list of boarders, call for a tour of the facilities. You want to make sure the facility is the right fit to meet your dog’s needs. Any reputable dog kennels should have no problem offering tours ahead of time so you can see the boarding conditions.

While you are touring dog kennels, speak to the owners and see if they can make any special, needed accommodations. If your pet has special dietary needs or medications that need to be taken, you need to make sure proper administration can be handled. You should also make sure that your pet is up to date on vaccinations before their boarding date.

Woofs & Wags

Woofs & Wags continually works to provide your pet the best overnight boarding experience possible. All pets require different things to make this happen so let us help you tailor the experience to fit your needs. This may be a quiet glass front suite with cozy bedding, or part of an active group of supervised cage-free campers who join new buddies in dog day care for the afternoon, or even just a standard room with plenty of one-on-one buddy time with a member of our caring staff. We have special menu items, grooming services, and added exercise plans to enhance their stay. Contact us for details or to arrange a facility tour.
