Is Boarding Good for My Dog?

Dog boarding

This is one of the most common questions pet parents ask, and we understand why! When work and travel make being apart from your pet unavoidable, you want to make sure your furry loved one is not only well taken care of, but thriving. Rest assured, that’s our goal too!

At All American Pet Resorts, our state-of-the-art accommodations are designed to maximize your pet’s wellbeing while you’re away. We pride ourselves on being a home away from home for your pet. The socialization and regular playtime they’ll get while in our care mean you’ll return to a happy, healthy pup that got plenty of fresh air, socialization, and rest in your absence.

In fact, we often hear from our returning clients just how beneficial they find boarding to be. Why? Because it offers opportunities that your pets might not otherwise get with a dog sitter. Opportunities like:

  • The chance to play and run around in open outdoor spaces

  • Supervised socialization to get them used to interacting with other dogs in a safe space

  • Proper hydration and nutrition to ensure they remain in peak condition

  • Mental stimulation and regular physical activity to keep them engaged and active

  • Loving care from trained specialists who know how to keep your dog safe and healthy

And there are benefits to boarding for owners too! You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your pet is in safe and secure accommodations with trained professionals who have experience caring for dogs. Your pet will have the opportunity to socialize with other dogs, enjoy individualized care and attention, and have access to a variety of dog-centric amenities, which means you won’t have to worry about how they are doing while you’re away. And that’s priceless!

Make Your Pet’s Boarding Experience Great

Here are some helpful tips before you make your reservation:

  • Talk to friends and even your vet. Chances are, you have a friend who has gone through this experience before. They can offer advice and tell you where to go – and what to avoid. Your dog’s vet may be able to make a recommendation as well based on your dog's needs.

  • Explore your options. Chances are you have more than one boarding option in your area. Make sure to complete your research and, if they allow, stop by to tour the facilities. Ask questions to ensure you get the necessary information. All American offers free tours for pet parents.

  • Determine what amenities your dog needs. Does your pup love to run around outside? Do they have dietary restrictions? Though most boarding services will let your dog out to play, some offer larger play areas, and some offer both indoor and outdoor spaces. As far as food goes, make sure you can provide your dog’s special food to be fed to them, if required. All American is happy to accommodate special needs - just talk to one of our staff members beforehand.

It’s important that you perform thorough research before selecting a boarding service for your pet. We recommend finding a facility that offers the amenities you need. All American Pet Resorts offers premium accommodations to ensure your pet feels comfortable and is well cared for throughout the duration of their stay. We are confident you’ll find our services second to none.
