Going away over the Christmas Holidays? Now is the time to start thinking about the needs of your dog. Boarding Kennel Stress in Dogs: Things owners need to know!

Going away over the Christmas Holidays? Now is the time to start thinking about the needs of your dog. Boarding Kennel Stress in Dogs: Things owners need to know!

With Christmas just a few months away, many people will be taking a holiday break and maybe going away. Now is the time to start thinking about your pets and who is going to look after them, if they can’t go with you. Dogs can and do get stressed, so if you are planning to leave your pets in a boarding facility, now is the time, to start looking around.

If your pets have never been boarded before, day stays and day/night stays are recommended and should really, be started now. Boarding kennel stress is real! Dogs become stressed the same as you and I and putting your dog into a boarding kennels, can be very stressful for them.

Imagine taking a young child to a strange place and leaving it with people it doesn’t know. The child will more often than not, become distressed and upset. The same thing, can and does happen to dogs.

I hope the enclosed link: Titled “Boarding Kennel Stress in Dogs: Things owners need to know!” will help and inform dog owners, so everyone including your pets, will have a stress free holiday.

Boarding Kennel Stress: Tips for boarding an anxious/nervy dog

Boarding Kennel Stress: Tips for boarding an anxious/nervy dog

Tips for anxious/nervy dogs

So you have an anxious/nervy dog who needs to go into a dog boarding facility, what do you do?

Leave it to the last minute and expect your dog to be ok. Yes well, you can do that. It still suprises me how many owners do, even though, they know their dog displays this behaviour.

Staying in a boarding kennels can be stressful for any dog but even more so for dog who is anxious and nervy. The wellbeing of your dog should be your main concern, so in the case of anxious, nervy dogs, dogs who need more space or dogs who have separation issues, a few visits/stays maybe required. As they need more time to adjust. Their experiences have to be good ones, depending on the dog.

‘Battery farm’ puppies die in pet stores

Words of advice, Let the buyer beware, if you buy a puppy, one of the 1st thing you should do is take it to your vet and ask them to do a health check. The health check needs to be done within couple of days of you taking your puppy home, don’t leave it any longer. If your puppy fails its health check, ask your vet to write you a report. Then inform the breeder, pet shop etc, you are entitled to an exchange or refund. Also make sure when you pay for your puppy you get a receipt, too many people just exchange cash/cheque etc and have no prove of purchase.
