You may be wondering, “What is dog boarding?” and trying to gain a better understanding of exactly what it entails. Dog boarding services can be extremely helpful when you go somewhere that your pooch can’t go. Whether you’re leaving for vacation, going on a business trip, leaving to manage family affairs, or you have another need that requires you get some assistance with your furry friend, dog boarding can give you the help you need.
Of course dog boarding can mean different things at different dog boarding facilities.
What is the difference in dog boarding services?
Some places offer dog boarding services that include cages or kennels. At these locations, dogs generally sleep in a cage at night; although the cages may have a fancy name like “suite” or “cabin” but, at the end of the day, a cage is a cage. The dogs may spend some of their daytime in their cage as well.
But at cage-free dog boarding facilities, like Villa La PAWS, your doggy will be free to roam around as he likes during the day and at night. At night, he can choose where he wants to sleep and it won’t be in a cage. He can decide if he just wants to plop down on the cool tile floor, if he wants to snuggle up on the couch (only if parents give permission of course), if he wants to sleep in an elevated sling-type bed, or if he wants to cozy up in a big, poofy dog bed. If he feels safer sleeping alone, he can also choose from one of our separated rooms or a big crate. Totally up to him!
Most dog boarding providers will give Fido some playtime, but here at Villa La PAWS, he can play all day long! Boarding is equivalent to a big ‘ol slumber party around here!
What about boarding pricing?
Dog boarding prices may vary from location to location so choose your location and give us a call to discuss, our boarding prices are all inclusive, meaning it includes daycare, administering medications, special diets and we don’t charge for hugs, they just come natural. We’ll be happy to go over our pricing and options with you. When looking for boarding, don’t just choose a place based on cheap dog boarding; make sure the prices are reasonable of course, but be sure your fur baby won’t be caged, will receive lots of love and attention, and can be viewed by webcam anytime of the day or night.
