Tips for Choosing the Right Dog Boarding Place

Tips for Choosing the Right Dog Boarding Place

Dog Boarding When you are looking around for a hotel to stay at when you’re on vacation, you don’t simply pick the one with the lowest price and book a room. You take a look at what different hotels have to offer, scroll through photos of what the various guest rooms look like, and then make a decision. So why don’t you do the same thing for your dog? If you are planning on boarding your pet in the near future, shouldn’t you take the steps to make sure you’re booking the best possible dog boarding facility? Here are some tips to help you make a final decision.

Take tours of different facilities.

Before you settle on the right dog boarding facility for your dog, take the time to tour a few different facilities. Pay special attention to where your dog will play, sleep, and eat everyday, and make mental notes about the cleanliness of each facility. You want to make sure your pet will be in a stable environment and that he or she will be surrounded by good dogs that will keep him or her company.

Ask facilities to describe the daily routine your dog will follow.

What will your dog be doing when he or she stays in a specific facility? That’s a more than reasonable question to ask, and you should expect a detailed explanation in response. Of course, it’s impossible for a facility to tell you everything your dog will do during every minute of their stay. Nevertheless, you should get a good idea of the kinds of activities your dog will be involved in before you make a reservation.

Make sure the facility you choose is staffed 24/7.

In the event of an emergency, you want to be sure someone is going to be around to tend to your dog and other dogs. It’s simply not acceptable to leave your dog in a facility where he or she could potentially be left unattended for long stretches of time. So make sure someone will always be around with your dog and the other dogs in the facility.

Tailwaggers Country Inn knows how hard it can be for some dog owners to find a boarding facility that works for them. We welcome the opportunity to board your dog and offer all of the dogs in our care group socialization, clean beds, balanced meals, 24/7 care, and so much more. Check out our boarding services and call us at 877-774-DOGS today with any questions you might have.
