Are you considering dropping your pup to a dog boarding facility but fearing they might experience kennel boarding stress? Sending them away from home and yourself might make them uncomfortable initially, but it’s for their good. Dog boarding facilities will take excellent care of your dog in your absence. A good place ensures your dog doesn’t have to go through emotional turmoil and helps the dog adjust quickly.
This blog will guide you on what can be stressful for dogs and give tips to reduce stress while boarding.
The mental and physical strain pups receive when a sudden change in the environment leads to their discomfort. They can show the symptoms through aggression, anxiety, fear, shaking and whining, and noticeable behavioral changes.
Imagine someone leaving you at a new place where you know no one. That’s exactly how a dog feels at a boarding facility for the first few days. These days can be tough to adjust to for your furry baby.
That’s why you must ensure that your furry buddy knows where it will be staying, allowing them to get comfortable and acknowledge the change. It is easier if your pup also knows a buddy in the kennel, helping decrease the fear and stress.
Here are ways to reduce your pup’s stress:

You have a larger breed dog, or suspect that your dog(s) might be a part of breed restrictions. We are a smaller facility, therefore, are limited as to how many larger dog breeds we can accommodate and accept within the program.
If your dog has more serious medical conditions, or requires multiple steps of medication. Our staff is well trained, and can accommodate routine medications, but for more serious attention, it is accepted on a case by case basis.
If you are looking for boarding within the week. We require a Trial Day for any dog(s) who are new to the facility, due to the nature of our safe socialized program. This is complimentary, but must be prescheduled. If you are looking for more immediate boarding, or other services, please call us to see if we can accommodate.
If you are looking for holiday boarding. Our holiday reservations are typically reserved for our existing clients. It is how we thank them for being a part of our Miss Emily's family year round!
