It is sad to admit that unfortunately there are just some places you can’t bring a dog, your honeymoon, the hospital, on a business trip or just to relax on family vacation. There are also times when it is more convenient to have your dog not at home because of events that may be stressful to them such as an evening with friends, fireworks on a holiday, an overnight party for your kids or renovations around the house. Dogtopia has got you covered with the most open play dog boarding in Omaha.
It’s helpful to have a place you trust in your back pocket for dog boarding when you have to separate from your canine companion. And the worst time to look for that place is at the last minute. Even before you become a dog owner you should begin thinking about contingency planning in case you have to be away and dog boarding is necessary.
Early in your life as a pet parent, you should look into visiting dog day care facilities and/or boarding kennels in your area so you can make an informed choice without a hurried need. If you wait until the last minute, the place you have to choose may be full, or may be a bad choice for your dog’s needs.
When I was ten my parents suddenly had an opportunity to go to Europe for the summer. Relying on word of mouth alone, without a previous site visit, they packed me off to a summer camp, said a cheery goodbye and departed for 8 weeks. I’ve never forgotten how lonely and betrayed I felt in that strange place. Dogs, too, can get lonely and depressed. With today’s options there is no reason to cause your dog undue stress. This is one reason you want to have a fantastic place for dog boarding.
Tips for Choosing Dog Boarding facility
Trust your nose when you are visiting a potential dog daycare or dog boarding facility. The best facilities have special ventilation systems that lessen the aroma of too much dog smell. And while you are at it, make sure that the entire place is clean and orderly. Dogtopia gives facility tours, so you can make a visit prior to when you are planning to leave your dog. If a facility is hesitant about giving you a tour or if the tour seems to omit areas other than the actual play group with dogs in open play, then this is a warning sign. To assist pet parents in transparency when choosing a dog boarding facility, at Dogtopia we are also equipped with web cameras so you can see your dog whenever they are in open play.
We sincerely hope this helps when choosing a dog daycare or dog boarding facility. It matters to YOU, so it matters to US!
