Booking a Hotel in Phoenix? Bring your pets with you!

How to Pamper your Pets with Pet Boarding

Regardless if you are headed to Phoenix to visit family or to escape the cold winter months in DC, vacations are always best when you bring your best friends with you. No, I don’t mean your buddies from High School, I am talking about your pets! Cats, dogs, snakes, turtles, ostrich (ok . . . maybe not an ostrich), whatever pets you have, they would probably love to join you as you are out enjoying the Arizona Sunshine! We get it though – pets are a big responsibility, and sometimes you want to vacation to get away from responsibility . . . that’s where pet day care comes in!

Dog boarding? Check. Cat boarding? Check. Let us help pamper your dogs and cats in our local pet care where they can play and have fun while you vacation and relax! We have pet boarding services in Georgetown. Let’s be honest, it doesn’t matter if you love dogs or cats (or both!), you want them to be with you and to be happy. Doggy daycare is a great way to ensure your pet gets to take a vacation too! Did you know that 85 million of the 127 million households in the U.S. are pet owners? That’s over 60%! In addition to that, over 70% of apartment renters have pets as well! Don’t worry, you aren’t a crazy cat lady, we all love our pets, and we love indulging in making them happy and comfortable.

Benefits of Pet Boarding

Here are a few benefits of pet boarding:

  • Your dogs and cats get to spend time socializing and playing with other dogs and cats while you are relaxing! We know you love spending time with your animals, however there are some activities that just aren’t super pet friendly, like golf. If you are planning a day on the green, or a day at the spa, rather than leave your pets behind, bring them to a local pet boarding daycare to ensure they are happy and cared for.
  • You can relax, knowing your best friends (ok let’s be honest . . . they are more like your kids) are being cared for by professionals who love animals. Why leave your pets in the hands of the random neighbor down the street while you are gone? You know that life gets busy and they won’t be able to give your kids . . . I mean pets, the attention they deserve. Let’s face it, your neighbors have busy lives. Stuff comes up. So bring them with you to a pet daycare and ensure they get the attention they deserve.
  • You can see your pets any time you like! That’s right, drop your pets off and pick them up any time you would like. We want to make sure you have the chance to hike and play and love your pets the entire time you are out here on vacation. This really is the best of both worlds.

Can Cats Stay Home During Your Vacation?

Going out of town can be tricky when you have pets, which is why many people choose to adopt a cat into their family. Cats are supposedly lower maintenance pets than dogs, and can stand to be left alone for longer periods of time, right? Believe it or not, this is a common misconception. Cats need plenty of care too, which is why local cat boarding services might be the right choice for you if you’re a cat owner looking to travel.

Cats Need Love, Too

While it is true that cats tend to be more independent than dogs, that doesn’t mean they’ll always be perfectly fine with you leaving for days at a time. Cats, despite popular belief, do need to connect with humans or other animals for emotional security and stability. When you leave for days at a time, your cat might become nervous or distressed, especially if you don’t have someone staying with them. Cat boarding can help them relax while you’re away by keeping them in good company.

Keeping Out Of Trouble

Nobody likes coming home from vacation only to have a mess to clean up when you get back. Cats, when distressed or needing attention, can cause a mess in a lot of different ways. This is especially true for families living in a smaller space with a pet, like the 70% of apartment renters who own pets. If you want to avoid coming back from your vacation to a ruined home or apartment, pet boarding services can help.

Quality Care For Emergencies

Even if you have someone checking in on your cat while you’re away, things can go wrong. Pet emergencies are scary, but they do happen, and if you’re on vacation you want to be confident that your cat is going to be well taken care of. A pet-sitter only is visiting your pet for brief periods during the day, and might not always be there when you need them to be for your pet’s health and safety. Pet boarding ensures your pet has the best care around the clock while you’re away from home, keeping them happy and healthy.

Cat boarding services ensure that your cat is well taken care of, so you can enjoy your vacation to the fullest. For more information on cat boarding services and other forms of pet care, contact Eastern Shore Pet Resort today.

Going On Spring Break? Give Your Pets A Vacation, Too

However, there’s one family member you shouldn’t forget about in your travel plans: your pets. According to The American Pet Products Association, almost 85 million households have a pet. That’s a lot of cats and dogs that will need care during vacation time. One solution to your pet vacation problems? Give them vacations as well.

Pamper Your Pooch

Dog daycare or dog boarding services can be a great option for any time you’re going on an extended vacation. These services ensure that your dog is staying active and engaged while you’re gone, keeping them from sitting at home bored waiting for you to return. Dog daycare programs give your dog a place to run around and play, as well as meeting other local pets that can keep them company while you’re away.

Additionally, giving your dog a chance to go on vacation keeps them out of the house, where they might get themselves into a surprising amount of trouble while you’re away. Nobody wants to come home from vacation to a mess they have to clean up. Doggy daycare services keep your pet out of trouble and perfectly happy while you’re away.

Caring For Your Cat

When you’re going on vacation, you might think that your cat will be perfectly content hanging out at home. However, your cat can also benefit from pet boarding services as well. Even if your cat isn’t terribly social, cat boarding services will give your cat a chance to stay active and engaged in ways that they might not get to if they’re stuck at home alone. Additionally, cat boarding services ensure that your cat is safe and well taken care of while you’re away; no need to worry about them sneaking off to wander the neighborhood while you’re out. Cats, just like dogs, can get pampered and enjoy your vacation with the right pet care services.
