Mostly dog owners are choosing private home dog boarding for their pets as an alternative to kennel boarding. This puts their pets in an environment they’re most used to and greatly reduces the exposure to contagious diseases. When answering an ad for home dog boarding you should set up an appointment for you and your dog to meet the home owner. You should also ask for at least three clients to call and get recommendations from. If they can’t provide them don’t consider that home.
If there is more than one dog in the home your dog should be introduced to each dog one at the time to give him a chance to acclimate himself and not get swarmed on by a group of dogs. When entering the home your dog should be on leash so you can control him and allow him to smell around and say hello to the home owner when he’s ready. Remember he’s a part of the decision making process.
The dog boarding home should be relatively clean, if there are dog bones lying around, it’s an indication the home owner is inexperienced. Ask where your dog will be allowed free access to. If there is a fenced in yard for your dog, make sure there are no holes in the fence. Make sure gates have latches that work. If it’s not clear that security is of the utmost importance to the home owner-leave. If you want to know more about dog boarding, then you should visit this helpful site.
