Vacation 101: Tips For Boarding Your Pet

Whether you’re leaving for a trip or are running on a particularly hectic schedule, it is important to ensure that your pet is in safe hands. From pet sitters to pet boarding kennels in Singapore, listed below are four tips for pet owners looking to entrust their furry friends to the professionals.

Know the handlers

Before selecting a boarding kennel, you may wish to first research on the establishment and its professionals. In addition to their experience, it is also important to look out for related reviews or past portfolios of the handlers so that you can make an informed decision.

Make pre-visits

Pre-visits to the boarding kennels will allow you to better know the establishment you’ll be leaving your furkid with. Take some time to understand the types of services that are provided and the dogs that are currently boarded. Ensure the boarding kennel is professionally equipped and has ample space for playtime.

Minimising separation anxiety

As with most pets, your furkid may not be familiar with being away from you. The abrupt separation may result in unnecessary stress for your pet. As such, it is advisable to first acquaint your pet with an unfamiliar environment, by leaving it with the boarding kennel for a few hours in the days leading up to your trip. This will allow your pet to get used to the separation and warm up to its new handlers.

Prepare your handlers

Does your pet have particular behaviours the handler should know about? Or does it have any health complications that require special attention? It is important to let the professionals understand your pet such that they are capable of catering to your pet’s needs.

While being away from their owners can be stressful, the above tips will help to facilitate the process and make it a fuss-free one.
