The topic of this week is boarding! Now if some of you don’t know what this means, it means that you are putting your pet somewhere to stay for a few days while you are away.
With Thanksgiving coming up, my parents have actually decided to take a trip to Vegas for the holiday. So with this being said, not many places allow pets in their hotels, let alone it’s probably not enjoyable for your pet to stay in the hotel all day long.
This kinda goes hand in hand with the earlier topic of my blog “picking the right vet.” I will be choosing to put Kuzco at St. Francis for boarding, which is my normal vet we go to. There are a lot of things that go into boarding surprisingly.
Major things to think about:
- Food – the vet does provide food for your dog while staying, but if they are sensitive to food then I would suggest taking your own for them.
- Playing – my vet offers an extra fee of $5 a day for the dogs to have “play time” this means during the day they have the chance to go outside and play with other dogs. This is good especially so your dog doesn’t get lonely while you are gone.
- Toys – pack your dogs favorite toys or blankets, whatever they love. That way it feels more at home for them during their stay.
- Price – it is important to know that there will be a daily cost most likely for your pet. Don’t let vets talk you into extra costs though. They will try to get you to choose extra treatments and such.
It’s important to board your dog somewhere where you know the proper care is available. You know that the employees take good care of your friend and keep them safe:)
That’s all for this blog. Everyone have a good Thanksgiving!
