Holiday Boarding Tips

December 1 2022
Will you be traveling over the next few weeks? If so, you’re not alone. This is a very busy time of year for travel, with so many folks heading home for the holidays. Of course, that means that many pets will find themselves staying in kennels while their owners are out of town. You’ll read some helpful tips on boarding your pet over the holidays in this article from Valley Pet Hotel, your Rialto, CA pet resort.

Get A Great Kennel 

Finding the right kennel is half the battle. Travel will be easier on both you and your pet if you are both familiar with your furry pal’s home away from home, and know what to expect. Check credentials and reviews.

Book In Advance

The holiday season tends to be very, very busy for kennels. Don’t wait until the last minute: secure your spot early! 

Ask About Perks

Kennels all vary on the perks and services they offer. Taking advantage of small upgrades can help keep Fido or Fluffy comfortable and happy. A puppy may need extra playtime, while a senior dog may need shorter but more frequent walks. Don’t be afraid to ask about various options!

Time Drop Offs Right

If possible, drop your pet off in the morning. That will give them the day to settle in, before they go to sleep at night. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time, especially if you’re stopping at the kennel on the way to the airport.

Be Clear About Procedures 

Keep in mind that, just like people, pets can unexpectedly get sick. This could happen any time, but would be extra stressful if you’re out of town. Ask about emergency procedures. It’s also a good idea to have a backup/emergency contact, in case you can’t be reached. 

Plan For Delays 

Everyone wants a white Christmas … until their flights get delayed by a blizzard. Weather disruptions are often par for the course at this time of year. If you need to pack food, medicine, or treats, include a few days’ extra. 

Have Fun

By bringing your pet to a great kennel, you’re ensuring that they are safe, sound, and well cared for. Enjoy your trip! Your four-legged friend will be waiting for you with purrs and tail wags when you return. Do you want to schedule boarding? Contact us, your Rialto, CA dog boarding kennel!
