If you’re going away and need somewhere for your pet to stay, pet resorts can be preferable to other options such as basic boarding kennels and house sitters. They also allow your pet to avoid the discomfort and stress of long journeys.
What to expect from pet resorts
Many pet owners experience the debate between boarding and sitting, and there’s more to consider than just the price. Pet resorts don’t have to be expensive, especially when you look for budget options, and the care they offer your pets around the clock can be preferable to using a pet sitter who may not be available at all times due to other commitments.
Pet resorts are staffed by experienced personnel who are trained to recognise any signs of discomfort and sickness, and to make sure your animals are well looked after throughout their stay.
How to choose a good pet resort
If you’ve decided to board your animal at a dedicated pet resort or hotel, you'll then need to learn how to find a good centre.
Word of mouth can be a reliable method of finding out which pet resorts are favoured and which have led to problems in the past, so asking friends and family as well as your local vet could help you make your decision. You can also ask to see a copy of the pet resort’s last inspection, which can be compared to the records from other centres.
