It’s that time of year when lots of parties and festivities are taking place, and though we love our pets and would like to involve them in everything we do, this can be a trying time for them and you. Decorations all over, extra guests, and foot traffic in your home; this can cause your furry friends to get super excited and end up under your feet more than you would like.
There are benefits to boarding your pet during the holiday festivities that will bring comfort and ease to them as well as you.
You Don’t Have To Worry About Your Pet Wreaking Havoc During Your Celebrations
A lot can go into planning the perfect holiday celebration. There’s the food, the decorations, activities, interacting with family and friends. Your pets are an important part of your family, yes, but they can also be a big distraction/ liability during holiday entertainment. If you have a pet that is a real “people’s person,” then you know that they’re bound to jump on or demand the attention of guests. If your guests are in the middle of eating or conversing with other guests, it can be very frustrating and distracting to have to deal with your pet at the same time.
Another big holiday party disaster would be having your pets get into the food. Not only is it unsanitary, but it’s a real party killer. And, it’s infuriating to have to throw away a bunch of food that you’ve prepared or paid for just because your pooch or cat decided to stick their nose and mouth where it didn’t belong.
New Years is definitely bound to be full of fireworks, and it would be hard to enjoy them with pets that respond negatively to loud noises and flashes of light. If you board your pets during the holidays, you’re guaranteed to be able to entertain much more efficiently.
You Don’t Have To Worry About Traveling With Your Pet
Traveling with a pet, much like traveling with young children, can be a lot. We’re putting extra emphasis on “a lot.” Driving with your pet means frequent potty breaks, and if your dog gets car sick easily, you may even run the risk of having to clean out your car a few times throughout the trip. Flying can be costly too. You could be looking at $125 or more each way for an in-cabin pet, which could cause you to pay for your roller bag because your pet counts as your carry-on.
And if you’re staying at a hotel, you may spend extra time searching for a facility that will allow you to bring your pet and pay extra fees to bring your pet with you. You can avoid all of those extra fees, sickness, and potty breaks by setting up a boarding appointment for your pet.
You Don’t Have To Worry About Them Getting Into Presents
Dogs and cats both love shiny things. They love shredding paper and tearing things apart. Wrapped presents make the perfect toys for pets, but when you’re trying to keep the mystery of your gifts under wraps, then it’s not a good idea to have your pets lurking around the tree every five minutes. Save yourself a heart attack, and have your pet boarded until the holidays are over and presents have been opened.
