This post is all about Pet Hotels vs. Home Boarding and what is best for your dog. With the recent popularity of pet hotels, many people think boarding their dog at a hotel will give them peace of mind.
Pet Hotel Boarding Pros
*Less stressful for your dog *They don’t have to deal with the stress of being around new people or animals all day, which can be tiring if they are uncomfortable.
All your dog’s meals and medications will be given as scheduled
Your dog will also get their scheduled feedings unless otherwise approved by staff or you. This way, they won’t go hungry even if there isn’t anyone around to let them outside during normal mealtimes.
*Boarding at a hotel will save you from hassles such as buying kibble, treats, toys, and bedding for your dog. All of these things are provided by the hotel.
Pet Hotel Boarding Cons
Not everyone has access to a pet hotel. Unfortunately, not all cities have kennels available for boarding pets. If you live in an area without many options, staying with family or friends might be your only other choice.
Home Boarding Pros
Let’s face it – dog quarters are not the most comforting for our pets. Even if the hotel has a room with a bed and blanket for your pup, they still won’t feel as comfortable as they would in their own home.
Home Boarding Cons
If your dog loves to socialize, they might not get enough exercise and attention if you’re the only one around to care for them. That could lead to behavior problems such as destructive chewing and barking that will put a damper on your home life.
