If you are planning a trip during which you’ll need to leave your furry friends at home, you may be considering dog boarding as a viable option. As you search for the right dog boarding facility, however, you may soon discover that some are better than others. As you tour the facility and check for cleanliness and ask about how your dogs will be cared for, there are a few other important questions you may want to ask:
1. Are you licensed & insured? – Knowing that your dog boarding facility of choice is licensed to care for dogs and has their facility properly outfitted so that dogs are safe and secure is essential. If a dog boarding business doesn’t have insurance or licenses to keep dogs, or is otherwise missing paperwork, then it may not be the best place to send your pups.
2. What vet services do you offer? – It’s also important to ask about the facility’s procedures if your pet sustains an injury or becomes ill while boarding. Do they have a veterinarian on-staff, will they contact your vet, and how do they inform you of any issues with your dog?
3. Do dogs get outside play time? – Getting fresh air is critical to the mental and physical health of your dog. When looking at dog boarding facilities, the amount of outside time that your dog receives is important.
