Boarding Your Dog for the First Time

Boarding your dog for the first time can be a difficult and stressful decision, but often it is the best choice for your dog. While having a friend or family member check on your dog several times a day, for walks and food as well as companionship, can be okay for a day or two, longer trips away from your dog require skilled care and attention that can come with boarding your dog. Doing your homework when choosing a kennel and being comfortable with the people caring for your beloved dog can make boarding your dog for the first time a bit easier.

Look for recommendations, from your vet and other dog owners, when choosing a place to board your dog. Your vet may offer boarding services, which is ideal. Your dog is already familiar with the staff at your vet’s office, and they have his medical records right there in the event of an emergency. If your vet does not offer boarding, he or she may be able to recommend a kennel that does.
