The Pros of Boarding While You’re on Vacation

Summertime is here which means more time spent outdoors and plenty of vacations planned! While you’re planning your next getaway, you’ll need to weigh your options on whether to bring your pet along for the ride or book them a reservation at a pet resort.

 

Your pets are part of your family, so we know you hate leaving them out of the fun, but it’s not always practical to bring them along! By bringing your dog to a boarding facility, you can ensure that they will be in a healthy living atmosphere, interacting with other dogs! Here at Central Bark, your dog will get to play in one of our designated play areas all day, or they can get pampered at our full service grooming salon. Here are some advantages to boarding while you’re on vacation:

Here are some other reasons why taking your pet on vacation with you can be difficult:

 

–Your pet may get travel anxiety. Traveling can be hard on pets: from flying or long car rides, to being in new surroundings, to visiting somewhere that’s unfamiliar. This can become very stressful for your pet.

–Your pet might become uneasy in an unfamiliar room they don’t recognize, like a hotel room. Dogs love routine, so a new hotel room could be confusing to them. In unfamiliar territory, dogs tend to bark or act strange, which could become a burden for you while you’re on vacation.

–Not all places are pet friendly. While more and more businesses are opening their doors to pets, there are still plenty that are not. Depending on where you’re headed, the pet-friendliness of the locale might limit your travel and sightseeing options.
