Rest Assured, Your Pet Is Safe When You are Out Of Town!

by DCC Pets Veterinary Hospital

To those of us who have pets, it is very difficult to leave them behind when we have to go away somewhere. A lot of us have to head home during the festive season and taking our dog or cat with us is mostly not possible for a multitude of reasons. So the inevitable and only feasible option is to find a boarding house for them. 

Pet boardings are common in most major cities now, but how to find the most suitable one for your dog-child? Will they take care of your cat half as well as you do? What if they aren’t given their food properly, or what if they get into a squabble and get bitten? Oh the horror! 

We know as pet parents, you may be feeling daunted and overwhelmed with all these questions, especially if this is your first time leaving your pet behind. But we are here to tell you to leave your worries behind! Enjoy the festive season without having bouts of anxiety about your furry friend.

In this blog, we shall explain to you all you need to know to choose the right pet boarding for your fur-baby while you are away. Read on to learn more. 

Type of Pet Boardings

There are numerous options to house your pet. Here are the popular options.

Kennel or Crate Boardings: Great for aggressive dogs or cats who do not like mingling with others of their kind.

Considerations: Kennels must be well-lit, hygienic and ventilated, have a good sanitation system (in case your pet has a toilet incident) and ample open space for your pet to run around and relieve some stress.

Cage-free Boardings: Perfect for shy dogs or cats; also great for fussy pets, since the lesser number of inhabitants ensures more one-on-one attention needed to feed these fur-babies!

Considerations: House must be puppy-proofed, with arrangements to isolate pets if they get into a fight and there should be arrangements to walk them daily.

Luxury Boardings: These offer your pets with the ultimate luxury experience - gourmet foods, spa sessions, premium bedding - they have it all.

Considerations: Property should be well-lit and ventilated and pet-proofed, with staff who are well-versed with pet interactions, such that they are able to break a fight or coax timid pets to eat

Pet Resorts: Open-plan private or semi-private boarding areas for your pets, usually with wide open fields or maybe, a pool. For highly energetic and active pets,(especially dogs), these places can be perfect.

Considerations: Property should have adequate fencing so that your pet is safe while running around, the pool area should be supervised by a trained pet professional to prevent any accidents, the sitting area must be spacious and hygienic and the grass in the fields must be free of pests or fleas.

How to Know Which Pet Boarding Option is Best?

Check out the following things about your choice of pet-boarding to know if your cat or dog would like it there too - 

Pet’s Behavioural Characteristics -
Being a good cat or dog parent lies in knowing your fur baby’s preferences..

If you don’t trust yourself to decide alone, talk to your veterinarian or a dog behaviorist for this purpose.

Pairing Criteria -  
If sharing spaces with other members of their kind is involved, ensure to discuss the pairing criteria in detail.

Discussing your pet’s nature helps the boarding house administrator decide on the best course of stay for your pet.

Vaccination Checks -
Have a conversation about the vaccination protocols that the pet boarding has in place for their pets.

This ensures that your fur baby is mingling with a safe crowd, while you’re away.

Food Arrangements -
Make sure that during this stressful time, your pet is receiving the right nutrition they deserve.

Check with the boarding house if they cater to fussy eating habits.

Experienced Staff -
It is necessary to ascertain whether your furry darling will be in good hands while you are away.

Check if the boarding house has an adequate set of trainers, behaviourists and administrators.

Ease of Contact -
Make sure that the staff at the pet boarding is vigilant and has access to all your contact details.

Incase of a disaster or accident, it should be mandatory that they inform you ASAP.

Last but not the least...

Breed Familiarity -
Take your pet over to the boarding house a couple of times before you drop them there.

Familiarising them with the place can only contribute beneficially, and even you will be able to experience the atmosphere at the boarding house, first-hand.

We understand that finding the right pet boarding for your fur baby is absolutely essential for your piece of mind, especially when you are travelling.
