Boarding Is Recommended

There are many positive benefits to pet boarding:

  • Prevents the stress of a long car, airplane or train ride
  • Allows your pet to stay where he/she is welcome (unlike most hotels)
  • Your pet receives more care and attention than if he/she were home alone
  • Constant monitoring by veterinary staff to spot potential health problems
  • Security of a kennel designed to prevent pets from escaping
  • You will have a better trip, knowing your pet is in good hands while you are away

How to Prepare Your Pet for Boarding

It is helpful if your dog or cat knows basic commands and is well socialized. If your pet is aggressive or unruly, boarding may not be a good idea. Your pet must be current on all of the required vaccinations before coming to the kennel. If your pet needs to be vaccinated, please let us know that in advance so that we can schedule their shots prior to boarding.

It’s also recommended to accustom cats and dogs to short visits to the kennel, before attempting longer stays.

Remember to:

  • Bring your pet’s medications, special food, toys, or blankets (if any)
  • Let our staff know of any behavior or health issues (such as fear of thunder or history of siezures)
  • When dropping off your pet, say your goodbyes and be on your way, because long and emotional partings may upset your pet.
