He’s used to being around his humans but occasionally we must leave him home for a few hours and although he misses us, he’s ok until we’re back home. He does not bark all day… he’s actually pretty quiet and loves being around company. He might get a bit depressed if mom isn’t home but then he cheers up some after a little while.

Is Dog Boarding Good For Your Dog?

Dog boarding can be a beneficial option for your furry companion, offering a structured and supervised environment when you're away. Professional boarding facilities provide social interaction, mental stimulation, and proper care, which can help prevent feelings of loneliness and boredom that dogs might experience when left alone for extended periods. However, the quality of the experience largely depends on the facility's standards, staff expertise, and the specific needs of your dog. It's crucial to research and select a reputable boarding facility that aligns with your pet's requirements and preferences to ensure a positive and enjoyable stay for your beloved dog.


Why Dogs Are Happier Staying With A Family Than Dog Boarding

The personal attention and love they receive in a family setting can make a significant difference in their happiness.

Compatibility

Ensure your dogs get along well during a meet-and-greet, reducing the risk of conflicts during their stay.


Availability

Find someone with a schedule that aligns with your travel plans to ensure your dog receives the attention it needs.


References

Communication

Choose someone who communicates effectively and is open to discussing your dog's needs, routines, and preferences.


Preparing Your Dog For Boarding

Preparing your dog for boarding is crucial to ensure a smooth transition and a stress-free experience for your furry friend. Follow these steps:


Gradual Introduction

If possible, have your dog spend time with the boarding partner before the actual stay to build familiarity.


Bring Comfort Items

Pack your dog's favorite toys, bedding, and familiar items to provide a sense of security.


Medical Records

Ensure your boarding partner has access to your dog's medical records and any necessary medications.
