Curious about pet boarding? If you want to go out of town sometime soon, you may be considering boarding your fur baby.
While it can seem hard to leave your pet with someone else, there are actually many benefits to pet boarding. Instead of having a friend or relative stop by occasionally while you’re away, your favorite furry friend can get all of the love and attention they need while you’re gone.
However, it’s important that you find the right pet boarding facility to ensure an amazing experience for your fur baby. Here’s how to find the perfect boarding facility for your next out-of-town trip.
One of the biggest indicators about the quality of a pet boarding facility, or pet hotel, is the requirements that pets need to meet in order to stay there. If a facility is very lax with their requirements, there could be pets that are not properly taken care of or vaccinated.
You’ll want to make sure that the boarding facility requires proof of up-to-date vaccinations, such as rabies, Bordetella, and distemper. Requiring flea medication is also a plus. If not, your fur baby may be at risk of developing a disease from an unvaccinated or medicated pet.
Check Out Reviews & Ratings
Want to know what people really think about a pet boarding facility’s environment, staff, pricing, and service? Check out their reviews and ratings. You can look at a local facility’s Facebook page, Google listing, and more.
Reviews are where people tell-all, and if people like the facility, you will see. If they don’t, it will be painfully obvious. You’ll figure out what the facility’s strengths and weaknesses are, which will help you choose the perfect facility.
If you’ve found a couple of facilities that catch your eye as a potential place for your pet to stay, it’s a great idea to check out the facilities with your pet. You’ll be able to see where your pet will stay, meet the staff, and check out the environment. You can find out how clean it is kept and how happy the pets are that are currently staying there, which will give you a good idea about how it will go for your pet.
Do A Test-Run
Before taking off on a week-long vacation and leaving your pet in a completely new environment, it is helpful to do a test-run of the facility beforehand. Not only will you be better prepared for the next stay, but you will also have peace of mind that your dog or cat will be comfortable and happy while you’re gone.
If the test-run happens to go badly, you will know that you need to look elsewhere to find the perfect pet boarding facility for your pet.
