Having a pet is a year-round job. You have to make sure your furry friend has sufficient food, water, shelter, and companionship. While this can be tough on a daily basis – especially when you also have to balance work, errands, and social obligations – you can’t imagine not having them around. During the holidays, however, life can get even more hectic and taking care of your dog or cat can make things more complicated. Pet boarding helps you relax during the holiday season, knowing your pet is safe and sound.
What are the benefits of pet boarding during the holidays?
Reducing stress, even for a day or two.
The holidays should be filled with fun and family, but things can get crowded —cleaning the house, navigating travel plans, dealing with guests, setting up decorations, cooking, and all the other little things that have to get done. Having your pet underfoot can cause problems, which is why boarding them even for a day or two can help make things easier on you and your family. That way, you can prep and host without distraction while your pet is cared for and exercised on a regular schedule.
No sick or runaway pets due to travel.
Traveling with your pet might seem like a good idea, but it can quickly become a nightmare. Airplane transport is expensive, many hotels don’t allow pets, and long car rides can make your pet sick, scared, or anxious. In addition, you run the risk of your pet getting loose and lost in an unfamiliar place. Boarding means you’ll always know exactly where your pet is, no matter how far away you are.
Your pet will be taken care of by professionals.
Your friends and neighbors mean well, but they are likely not professionally trained to take care of your pet. Pets entrusted to non-professionals often escape or become seriously ill due to lack of reliable supervision. When you choose pet boarding, you know your dog or cat is receiving attentive, expert care. Trained professionals know how to administer medication, handle emergencies, and make sure your pet is given all the love, attention, and stimulation they need.
Why should I board at Noah’s Ark?
We are dedicated to keeping your pets happy and healthy. Our new and improved indoor boarding facility offers spacious heated and air-conditioned runs and kennels for dogs, as well as luxurious kitty cottages for our feline friends. The boarding facility is maintained to the highest standard of comfort, safety, and cleanliness by our caring staff, under the supervision of our veterinarians. In order to be admitted for boarding, pets must have completed routine health check-ups and their vaccinations must be current. When you board with us, you can rely on the knowledge that your pet is safe and healthy.
We know your pets deserve lots of love, especially when they’re separated from you! Our highly qualified kennel attendants provide lots of brushing, cuddling, and supervised outdoor playtime to keep your dog or cat happy and active. For example, we walk each dog 4 times a day and check on them frequently.
You can also bring your pet’s favorite food and other personal belongings from home. We’re happy to have anything you think will make their stay with us more enjoyable. Noah’s Ark also offers “Pamper Packages,” which you can customize with your pet’s favorite activities and treats.
The holidays should be a fun, low-stress time for everyone in your family, including your pet. This winter, we’d love to help make that happen.
