Many dogs thrive in a well-run boarding environment, enjoying the opportunity to socialize and play.

Why Are Dogs Happier Staying With A Family Than Dog Boarding?

When it comes to choosing the best care for your beloved dog, the family environment offered by dog boarding communities proves to be a happier choice for several reasons:


Personal Attention And Companionship

Dogs thrive on companionship, and staying with a family provides constant human interaction and attention.


Home Comforts

Dogs often feel more at ease in a home setting with familiar furniture and surroundings.


Reduced Stress

The warmth and familiarity of a family environment can significantly reduce separation anxiety and stress.


Socialization

Staying with a family and possibly other dogs fosters socialization and helps dogs remain active and engaged.


Individualized Care

Families are more likely to tailor care routines to match their dog's unique needs and preferences.


Ensuring Safety And Health: What Vaccinations Does Your Dog Need For Boarding?

Before boarding your dog, it's essential to ensure they are up-to-date with the necessary vaccinations. Here's a breakdown of the vaccinations your dog should have to ensure their safety and the well-being of other dogs in the boarding facility:


Core Vaccinations

Core vaccines, such as rabies, distemper, parvovirus, and adenovirus, are essential for all dogs and provide protection against serious diseases.


Kennel Cough Vaccination

Kennel cough is a highly contagious respiratory infection. Many boarding facilities require the Bordetella vaccination to prevent its spread.


Canine Influenza Vaccination

Canine influenza, or dog flu, is another contagious respiratory disease. Discuss with your vet whether your dog needs this vaccine based on their lifestyle and risk factors.


Parasite Prevention

In addition to vaccinations, ensure your dog is protected against parasites like fleas, ticks, and intestinal worms.


Beyond The Stay: How To Ease Your Dog's Transition After Boarding

After a boarding stay, your dog might need a bit of extra care to ease their transition back home. Here are steps to help your pup settle in comfortably:


Gradual Return To Routine

Slowly reintroduce your dog to its regular routine to avoid overwhelming them with abrupt changes.


Quality Time Together

Spend quality time with your dog through walks, playtime, and cuddles to reassure them of your presence.


Monitoring For Changes

Keep an eye out for any changes in behavior, appetite, or health, and consult a vet if anything seems off.


Positive Reinforcement

Reward your dog for its good behavior and positive attitude during the boarding stay to reinforce positive associations.


Preparation And Packing: Essential Checklist For A Smooth Boarding Experience

To ensure you're fully prepared for your dog's boarding stay, here's a comprehensive checklist of items to pack and things to consider:

  • Necessary Documentation: Pack your dog's medical records, vaccination certificates, and any medications they need.
  • Food and Feeding Instructions: Include enough of your dog's regular food for the entire stay, along with clear feeding instructions.
  • Comfort Items: Pack your dog's bed, blanket, and favorite toy to provide a sense of familiarity.
  • Emergency Contact Information: Provide the boarding facility with your contact details and the contact information of someone who can make decisions for your dog if needed.
  • Backup Supplies: Pack extra supplies like poop bags, leashes, and any special grooming tools your dog might need.


Choosing The Right Dog Boarding Community: Factors To Consider

If you're considering the dog boarding community route, here are important factors to consider when selecting the right community for your dog:


Compatibility

Ensure that the other dogs in the community are a good match for your dog's size, energy level, and temperament.


Rules And Guidelines

Understand the community's rules, expectations, and any agreements related to pet care and safety.


Communication And Trust

Health And Wellness

Verify that all dogs in the community are healthy, up-to-date on vaccinations, and regularly checked by a veterinarian.


Trial Period

Consider starting with a trial period to see how your dog adjusts to the community and whether it's a good fit overall.


Managing Medications And Special Needs: Guidelines For Boarding Dogs With Health Conditions

If your dog has special medical needs or requires medications, here's how to ensure they receive proper care and attention during their boarding stay:

  1. Detailed Instructions: Provide clear and comprehensive instructions to the boarding facility regarding your dog's medication schedule, dosage, and any specific instructions.
  2. Emergency Contact Information: Share your veterinarian's contact details and authorize the facility to make medical decisions on your behalf if needed.
  3. Regular Check-ins: Request updates from the facility to ensure your dog is receiving their medications as prescribed and is doing well.
