How In Home Dog Boarding Works
Call, email or contact me and we’ll set up an initial consultation, a Meet and Greet, in my home.
We take special care in giving your dog the love, care and attention he, or she, is used to having. Receiving lots of love, petting, playing in a large fenced in backyard, a cushion-y and comfortable place to sleep ~ and your dog will eat the food and snacks you bring, not the kennel provided dog food at the times and pace dictated by the kennel.
If you want your dog crated for the night, for training and/or to keep to a routine, just bring it with you.
Boarding dogs in a kennel environment is harsh and intolerable for some dogs, unless they are very accustomed to being in a kennel and you started putting them in a kennel at a very young age. Dogs become stressed out the same as you and me, and putting your dog into boarding kennels can be very traumatic for them. A dog’s brain is comparatively developed to a toddler’s mentality. Any dog can, to some extent or another, become distressed and upset being left in a new environment.
Even calm and friendly dogs, dogs not easily agitated, can become very stressed out when placed in a new surrounding, enduring a change of diet and house routines. Hard on dogs being put into a kennel where they are unfamiliar with the environment, surrounded by new smells and many other dogs – and probably dealing with barking and howling for very long periods of time. Kennel boarding can stress a dog out to the point that he seems like a different dog when you bring them home.
