Whether your pet is a frequent flyer, or a first timer, check out these helpful tips before your pet’s next boarding reservation!
- AGE: Geriatric and very young pets may not do well in a high stress environment. Good or bad, stress is still stress! With all the excitement of new sights and sounds, some pets are easily over stimulated even at pet day care boarding.

- CHRONIC ILLNESS/SPECIAL NEEDS: Pets with illnesses requiring long term medications, and pets with disabilities may need extra care, or more supervision than a standard boarding facility offers.
- FIRST TIMERS: Consider day boarding, prior to an overnight stay. This allows your pet to become familiar to the surroundings of the boarding facility, as well as the staff.
- CALM THE NERVES: Ask your veterinarian about products to calm nerves before and during your pet’s boarding stay.
- UPDATE VACCINES: Call the boarding facility to find out which vaccines are required to board your pet. A quick call to your vet can tell you your pet’s vaccine status. If your pet is overdue for a required vaccine, it is ideal to update two weeks prior to boarding.
- EMERGENCY INFO: Before leaving your pet at Pet Keepers Boarding Kennel, make sure to review all of your emergency contact information!
