Leaving your dog in the hands of another while you’re heading out of town is the ultimate trust exercise. All dog owners want the best for their pup, which is why you only look for the best dog boarding facility in the Boston area. If you haven’t yet boarded your dog in a boarding facility, here are a few things you should look for when trying to decide which is best for you and your dog.
- Space. Take a walk around the grounds of the boarding facility and get a feel for the amount of outdoor space your dog will have access to. Some boarding facilities only allow dogs to have a 6×6 outdoor plot that’s sectioned away from other dogs. Although this is a standard at most dog kennels, Canine College also has a large play pen where dogs can be social!
- Affordability. The longer your vacation without your pup, the more you will end up paying for your dog to be lodged at a boarding facility. However, this doesn’t mean that you need to be paying top dollar. Be sure to compare rates before you make a decision to make a reservation. At Canine College, our pet boarding rates are less expensive than those located within the city of Boston. Holbrook is located just outside the city, which means more space for your dog and more money in your pocket.
- Cleanliness. First impressions are everything, so if you notice that the pet boarding facility you’ve chosen isn’t as nice as it looked from the pictures online, then perhaps it’s time to go with option two. At Canine College, our pet boarding area is cleaned regularly by our hardworking and attentive staff. Your pet will always have drinking water available, will be fed on a consistent basis and will be administered any medications in a timely manner if need be.
- Extra Perks. If you’re heading out of town for longer than a weekend, we recommend finding a pet boarding facility that offers other amenities aside from the standard kennel. At Canine College, we also provide pet grooming (come back to your dog looking fabulous!), dog training, doggie day care and more. Many of our past customers have opted for pet grooming and doggie day care and have mentioned how great it was to come back to a happy dog.
