4 Tips to Make Your Pet’s Boarding Experience an Enjoyable One

4 Tips to Make Your Pet’s Boarding Experience an Enjoyable One


4 Tips to Make Your Pet’s Boarding Experience an Enjoyable One

As much as we’d love to bring our pets with us whenever we need to go out of town for a holiday or for work, it’s not always possible. It’s also not easy to find a family member or a pet sitter to take care of our furry friends while we’re away. In which case, a pet boarding facility is the next best option.

Equipped with the necessary services and accommodation to make sure that your pet doesn’t feel as lonely while you’re away, pet boarding in Singapore can be heaven sent if you choose the right facility. Here’s how you can make this a pleasant experience for you and your pet.

Do Your Research 4 Tips to Make Your Pet’s Boarding Experience an Enjoyable One

Suss out which pet boarding facilities are the trustworthy ones by asking around and by reading reviews. You can even ask your veterinarian as they are likely to know a few boarding facilities in your area and could possibly be working with them as an on-call vet!

Visit the Site 4 Tips to Make Your Pet’s Boarding Experience an Enjoyable One

When you do decide on a facility, head over and explore the place as thoroughly as possible. Take a tour of the areas that your pet will be housed and get to roam around as well, keeping an eye out for any waste that hasn’t been disposed of. If you don’t spot any then it’s a sign that it’s a well-maintained place. If there’s an outdoor space for pets to play in, do check the fences to ensure that they are secure.

Request for a Single Room 4 Tips to Make Your Pet’s Boarding Experience an Enjoyable One

Pet boarding facilities usually have a shared room for your pet, meaning that they will be kept with another boarded pet. Ask, or if you can, pay for a single room to ensure that your pet doesn’t have to stay with a stranger and will be more comfortable. Alternatively, if you have two pets who get along well, you can put them in a room together and save money as well.

Do a Trial Run 4 Tips to Make Your Pet’s Boarding Experience an Enjoyable One

If you intend to be away for an extended period of time, then you might want to try out the facilities for a day or two as a test run. This way, you can see how well your dog or cat takes to the pet boarding facilities and make any adjustments or alternative plans while you still have time. If your pet comes home upset, stressed or dirty, or any combination of the three, you should start looking for another pet boarding facility.

Being away from your pet is never easy, but by taking these steps, you can ensure that your pet is comfortable while you’re away and make it a less stressful period for the both of you.
