Q: Anxiety about Boarding

Anxiety about Boarding

Does anyone have any recent experience with boarding an animal? I will be boarding my baby this week while we are out of town and I am a little worried about it. I am sure that he will be well taken care of. He will be at a facility that is run by our vet's office but I am worried that he will be sad and not understand that we will back for him.

ask the people their if he can get as much company as possiable that kind of calms them down.Get something that your pet loves a lot like a favorite toy and give him something to remeber you by keep me updated. BYE

Give him something that smells like you; a shirt, etc. This should help calm him. The other suggestion I have, that really won't work for you given this is happening this week, would have been to take him there and show him where he was going to stay. Another time take him there and have him stay for a few hours or half the day, then for a day. Basically working up to a longer stay so he starts to understand you are coming back.

We've used a Petsitter instead of boarding. That way our pets stay in familiar surrounds, we're sure they're in a safe place and our Petsitter is excellent.
Read too many things about kennels, of course not all or most, to risk putting my babies in that situation.
