There are a lot of questions to answer when preparing for a vacation. Where is my passport? How will I get to and from the airport? Who will water my plants while I am gone? What should I pack? If you are a pet owner, another question you might be asking is, ‘What am I going to do with my dog while I am away?’ Dog boarding is a great option for your pet while you are traveling. Let us here at Dogs by Andy K-9 Services answer some of the most common dog boarding questions. Check out the Q&A below.
Question: Can I just drop my dog off? Or do I need to make a reservation?
Answer: Most dog boarding facilities require a reservation ahead of time. High-quality, popular facilities typically fill up quickly (especially around long holiday weekends). Our expert advice is to always plan to make a reservation for your dog boarding needs well in advance.
Question: Will my dog be played with? Or will my dog be stuck in a kennel all day?
Answer: A high-quality dog boarding facility will have a daily schedule that includes indoor and outdoor playtime, meals, treats, and TLC from their team. Many dog boarding facilities also offer additional 1-on-1 playtime opportunities or even training for an additional fee.
Question: Does my dog need to be vaccinated?
Answer: The answer is most likely yes. Many dog boarding facilities require dog vaccinations before letting dogs into their facility. This helps to ensure the health of the other animals at the facility as well as the staff.
