Once in a while, every dog or cat owner must go out of town for extended periods of time. Often it is impractical to take the pet with them. Business trips, vacations in other states or countries, or trips to family events are not conducive to taking pets.
But, everyone wants their pets to be well taken care of and comfortable. Everyone wants their pets to have attention, so they don’t get lonely or anxious. A dog boarding in NYC can be a viable answer to dog care while the owner travels.
Getting Ready To Board An Animal
Before boarding an animal, the owner should make sure all vaccinations are up to date. This may include a visit to the vet to check on vaccinations and get a print out for the kennel. If the dog or cat is behind on one or more vaccination, they will need to get them. The dog or cat should have a carrier to transport them to the kennel. Large dogs will need to be properly restrained with a leash.
Be prepared to wait in the reception area with the animal to be checked in. Take the dog’s or the cat’s favorite treats or toys for their stay. A favorite bedding material will also help the animal be more comfortable. Some kennels will also allow owners to furnish the food the pet is used to. Have everything in the car and ready to give the kennel employees at the time the animal is checked into the kennel.
It is always good to visit the kennel before signing an animal up for boarding. Check the kennel for amenities, sleeping spaces, dog runs, and cleanliness. Good kennels will have a basic boarding price with additional paid services such as grooming, playtime, and walks.
A dog boarding in NYC should give the animals personal attention and good, nutritious food to keep them happy. The animals should be kept in clean spaces with fresh bedding daily. They should have dog runs for exercise. Cats should have attention, scratching posts, jungle gyms, clean cat litter, and spacious sleeping compartments. Contact NY Tails for more information.
