Where Do You Leave Your Pet During A Vacation?

Leaving your pet behind while travelling can be one of the hardest things to do. Since most commercial airlines will not allow any pets onboard, it is nearly impossible furry friend with you. If you’re intending to travel, listed below are several ways to ensure that your pet will still be well taken care of.

Hire a professional pet sitter

Engaging a professional pet sitter is one of the best options, especially so if your pet requires special attention. Most online pet shops in Singapore will have a list of pet sitters, from which you can easily select the most suitable one. For pets who are uncomfortable with unfamiliar environments, it is recommended to hire an in-house pet sitter instead.

Opt for a boarding kennel

Pet boarding services in Singapore are readily accessible, so engaging a suitable one shouldn’t be too much of a hassle. With facilities including supervised playing areas and comfortable sleeping zones, pet owners can rest assured that your furry friend’s well-being will be ensured by professionals. For pets with special needs, you may consider vets who offer pet boarding services, to ensure that any potential health complications will be attended to.

Engage the help of family

Or friend. As pets are likely to be more comfortable with those they are a familiar with, leaving them with a closed one will help to minimise the chance of pet separation anxiety while improving their social skills at the same time. While this may be the most affordable option of the three, ensure that your friend or family member is truly comfortable with your pet before engaging them with the pet-sitting task.

You may wish to have your furry pal get used to your absence by conducting trial pet stayovers with a friend or family member. For pets who suffer from separation anxiety, it is recommended to leave your pet under the care of a professional instead.
