PREPARE YOUR DOG FOR BOARDING:

Remember that pets, like people, usually appreciate a vacation in new surroundings with new friends. Dogs, once they become familiar with their new surroundings, have a marvelous, exciting time, almost like kids at summer camp. (If your dog has never been boarded before, you might consider short, overnight stays at the kennel or Doggie Daycare prior to an extended boarding stay to help him or her get used to boarding. Every time you return, your dog is less likely to be affected by "separation anxiety" and can enjoy boarding more.)

  • Don't overfeed your pet right before going to the kennel. (The extra food is not really necessary and the result might be an upset stomach.)

  • Finally, because pets sense and reflect our emotions, DO NOT allow any member of the family to stage an emotional "farewell" scene. Your pet can be made to feel unnecessarily anxious about the kennel visit if they are subjected to this kind of dramatic display.
