It can be difficult for dedicated pet owners to leave a beloved animal in someone elseís hands. However, with some simple preparation, the process of turning over a cat or dog to a San Jose pet boarding facility will be a more pleasant experience, and will facilitate a safer, less traumatic transition for your pets.
First, before dropping off an animal for dog boarding in San Jose or surrounding areas, make sure the dog has been updated on all vaccinations. Do this at least one week before the scheduled drop-off if at all possible.
You may wish to consider a goodie bag for your dog or cat. Boarding in San Jose areaís West Valley Pet Lodge is fun and stimulating, but thereís nothing like having favorite toys from home to lend comfort to an animal. (You may want to mark toys with your petís name to eliminate confusion.) You might also include in this kit any medication your pet may be taking. West Valley Pet Lodge is more than experienced in caring for pets, but no one knows your animal like you do.
These steps not only ensure a more pleasant stay for your pet, but they also put you more at ease with the idea of going away without your companion.
When it comes time to drop off a pet for their stay at dog boarding in San Jose, keep in mind a few other steps that could improve the experience.
Yes, you are probably a little bit anxious about leaving your companion, but remember, your pet feels this anxiety too. Animals are sensitive to our emotions and often take their cues from us. For this reason, it is extremely important to temper your emotions while turning over your animal to a San Jose pet boarding facility. West Valley Pet Lodge strongly recommends dropping your pet off as early in the day as possible, so that they adjust and acclimate, and settle in to the kennel atmosphere during the day, before the day ends.
Remain calm and keep your voice casual. Make your farewell brief, and speak in a happy tone, so your pet will interpret the situation positively. If your animal does become anxious, ignore the behavior.
Following this advice should provide you and your pets with a much more positive experience with dog/ cat boarding. In San Jose and surrounding communities, animal lovers can also count on the experienced staff at West Valley Pet Lodge to help ease the transition and make this experience even better.
