Ways to Prepare Your Dog for Boarding with Our House Braselton

A vacation is the perfect way to unwind. Make your vacation time just as enjoyable for your dog! Boarding your dog at Our House – Braselton, when you’re out of town, is a great way to ensure that your dog is thoughtfully cared for while you’re away.  To keep both of your vacations as stress-free as possible, here are a few things that can help prepare your dog for their stay:

Adjust Your Dog’s Sleeping Habits

If your dog sleeps with you in your bed each night, you can expect him to be upset with sleeping alone at the boarding facility. Do your best to get him adjusted to sleeping by himself. If he cries when sleeping alone, you can expect him to cry when he’s boarded.

Keep Your Dog Comfortable

Even the most comfortable boarding facility can’t match the comfort of a dog’s home. Bring a familiar rug for your dog to sleep on. It will help them feel more secure. The facility may allow you to bring your dog’s bed, so ask in advance.

Drop Off Your Dog in the Morning

If your schedule permits, drop your dog off at the boarding facility early in the morning. This gives them the entire day to adjust to their surroundings before it’s time for them to fall asleep at night.

Visit Your Dog’s Veterinarian

It’s important that your dog is de-flead and wormed. You should also update your dog’s vaccinations at least two weeks prior to boarding. 

Follow these tips and you’ll help your dog have a much more pleasant stay, and you can enjoy peace of mind while you are on your vacation.  If you have any questions about how you can best prepare your dog for a fun boarding experience, give your Braselton pet boarding resort a call today!
