Tips to Reduce Stress during Boarding Stays

  • Bring your dog’s favorite food – it’ll reduce the risk of causing an upset stomach and make for a more comfortable transition.
  • Bring their favorite toys and blankets—it’ll make their crate feel more like home and give them something to cuddle up with during nap time. Remember that some of these items may not be returned in the same condition as they were brought in due to chewing, wear, and tear.
  • Bring your dog in the morning and afternoon—this will allow for more socialization and more time to play before dinner and bedtime. This will help them get some energy burned off during the day and time to get acquainted with their new friends.
