How to Pick A Dog-Approved Pooch Resort

Over one-third of U.S. homes have a dog. This means that there are many dog parents who go on vacation each year. Some dog moms and dads may opt-out of vacation because they are concerned about leaving their pets behind. Some issues dog parents face are the cost of a local dog boarding service or trusting someone else to handle pet care. These concerns can cause a dog parent to stay at home.

Since almost all employed Americans would like to take a holiday, luckily there are places like Eastern Shore Pet Resort, where a dog parent can take advantage of pet boarding services. Many vacationers like to go to the Delaware beaches in the summer. There are local Delaware beach pet care services that can help. The first step is making a dog boarding reservation at a reputable dog boarding service. A good way to find a dog board service is to ask for referrals from friends who have used local pet boarding. If you don’t have a referral, you can do research online for local dog boarding and check reviews.

When researching local dog boarding services, you want to make sure that most of the reviews are positive. You want to comparison shop to make sure you are getting the best services and amenities for holiday pet boarding. Check what kind of meals the dog boarding service would be serving. Another thing to check for would be what kind of activities they offer your pets. Does your dog get enough outdoor time? Depending on what breed of dog you have, you might need to check breeding or size restrictions. Also, you will want to check if the staff is trained in case of an emergency. You want to see how your pet’s health and well-being will be handled. Of course, it is also important to check online pictures or videos to get a visual snapshot of where your dog will be staying.

After you finish your research, you can book your reservation for a local dog boarding service. Some services allow you to book your reservation online. Other local pet care companies may require a phone call. Either way, make sure you ask any questions you may have before finalizing your reservation for your dog care. That way you can be sure that your beach vacation will be dog-approved.
