Your office may send you on an out-of-state business trip because it wants to rely on your familiarity with an important customer. Or you just may want to take a break from work by going on a week-long cruise. In either case, you can’t just leave your pet alone. Here are three strategies for handling dog care during your journey.
- Take him with you. This option keeps your furry friend with you at all times. But it’s only practical if he’s small enough to fly with you in an airline cabin or you’re driving somewhere. You then have to contend with finding a place that accepts pets and perhaps paying a security deposit for the privilege. You’ll also have to take all the food and accessories that ensure your dog feels at home on vacation.
- Leave him with someone. A trusted friend and family member can take care of your pet. You have to be sure that she’s well-qualified to do so. Not just anyone has the skills or the patience to deal with your constant companion. Your first choice might be a current pet owner except her current animal might not get along with yours. Someone who is between dogs would be ideal since you already know that she’s experienced with pet care. Don’t forget to give her your dog’s favourite toys, as well as a supply of his current food.
- Board him. You may have the outdated notion that a kennel is the last place you want to keep your pet because of its prison-like atmosphere. The best way to assuage such assumptions is to visit our facility, preferably with your pet in tow. You’ll discover a recreational atmosphere complete with a waterfall and daytime activities, and at night your best friend will board in our home not a kennel. Our boarding space is limited so your pet will receive personal attention. He’ll feel like he’s on vacation just like you.
