Are you planning a vacation but worried about your furry friend’s boarding stay? As a responsible pet owner, it’s important to make sure your dog is comfortable and safe while you’re away.
One way to ensure a stress-free boarding experience is to pack the right items. Here’s a checklist of what to bring when boarding your dog to make their stay enjoyable and worry-free.
1) Emergency Contact Information
It’s important to provide us with your contact information and that of a trusted emergency contact. This should include your phone number, as well as an alternate contact who can be reached in case you cannot be reached. Having this information readily available will allow Priority Boarding to quickly get in touch with you or your emergency contact if needed.
2) Reminder of Home
To help your dog feel more comfortable during their stay with us, consider bringing a small item that reminds them of home. This could be a favorite blanket, a shirt with your scent, or a familiar toy. Having something familiar can provide your dog with a sense of security in a new environment and help ease any anxiety they may have.
3) Favorite Toys and Snacks
Bringing your dog’s favorite toys and snacks can also help keep them entertained and provide comfort during their boarding stay. Familiar toys can provide a sense of familiarity and keep your dog occupied, while favorite snacks can be used as treats or rewards. Be sure to check with Priority Boarding for any restrictions on toys or snacks before packing them.
5) Your Dog’s Feelings
While packing the physical items is important, it’s also essential to consider your dog’s emotional well-being. Before boarding your dog, take some time to ensure they are feeling their best. Give them plenty of exercise, mental stimulation, and affection. A tired and content dog is more likely to adjust well to their boarding experience.
6) Medications and Instructions
If your dog is on any medications, be sure to provide the boarding facility with the necessary medications and clear instructions on how to administer them. Include the medication name, dosage, and frequency. It’s also a good idea to provide written instructions on any special care or routines that your dog requires, such as dietary restrictions or exercise needs.
Sit, Stay, Relax.
Boarding your dog while on vacation can be a challenging decision, but with the right preparation, you can ensure a smooth and stress-free experience for both you and your furry friend. By packing the items listed above and providing clear instructions to Priority Boarding, you can help your dog feel comfortable, safe, and happy during their stay.
Remember to also communicate any special needs or concerns with the boarding facility to ensure the best care for your dog. With proper preparation, you can enjoy your vacation knowing that your dog is in good hands.
