Your dog is an invaluable member of the family and it's not surprising that they are referred to as man's "best friend" when they supply us with such love and loyalty. This is why they deserve the best when you go away on holiday.
After having your love and affection all year round, some dogs can find this separation period difficult, even if it is just a week. To give you complete peace of mind and let you have fun and enjoy your holiday, it is important to know your dog is having fun and enjoying its holiday too!
Preparation is vital when looking for the right dog boarding in Hillsborough for your dog. You will want to research all the dog boarding kennels in your area before you make a decision.
Make sure you book well in advance to avoid disappointment as they get booked up quickly especially around the holiday period. Also, all reputable dog boarding kennels require your dog to be fully vaccinated, so make sure this is done in advance and you have all the paper work.
To begin your search for a reputable dog boarding kennel, check with friends and family as good recommendations will really help you to make a decision. Also, check with your local vets and pet store to see if there is anyone they would recommend.
There are various types of facilities available offering a vast array of services. You can opt for doggie daycare if it's only the day you are going away for, while dog boarding kennels provide a more upscale service offering cage less dog boarding and one on one attention from the pet sitter.
Once you have determined which dog boarding kennel you are interested in, make appointments to go around and visit and meet the owners. Make sure the facilities are clean, tidy, safe, and odor-free. Find out who will be looking after your dog; see how they interact with your dog and whether you feel happy that the person will take good care of your dog. Check the outdoor areas to see that they are fully secure and that they are not too near busy main roads in case your dog does escape.
