Many dog owners regard their pet as a member of the family, and so they treat it as such. A lot of dog owners refuse to leave their animals in a dog boarding facility because they feel that their best friend would be a lot safer at home. However, when you leave your pet in the home all by itself, and you head off to work for eight hours or more, it’s difficult to imagine what goes through its mind while you’re at work. That’s a long time for any animal to be alone and dogs especially, like to keep themselves occupied and to run around. It is very likely then that your dog will get bored, and when dogs get bored, they can get up to things that they shouldn’t. Many owners have come home to a house where a sofa has been ripped to pieces, the inside of the mattress has been torn out, and expensive shoes have been ruined.
This is an expensive lesson to learn and one that could have been avoided if you had just taken advantage of dog boarding in Sydney. There are so many benefits of leaving your animal here while you go to work, or for longer when you go on vacation.
- 24 hour supervision – Many of these boarding facilities take care of your animal around the clock, and there is a person available to take care of them, and there are usually CCTV facilities to keep an eye on them at night while they sleep. The staff there is incredibly professional and they love spending time caring for and playing with your animal. It’s completely safe there as everything is fenced off, and there are other dogs to keep your pet company.
- An opportunity to socialise – Many dogs lack the social skills to deal with other dogs, and so this is the perfect opportunity to introduce them to many different shapes and sizes of dogs. If you like, many of these boarding facilities offer dog training as well, so when you return from your holiday, you will be returning to a pet with a lot more manners, that understands what is right and what is wrong.
These are only two of the reasons why you should leave your dog in a dog boarding facility when you go to work, when you stay away for longer on a vacation. It allows your animal to get the attention that it deserves while you are away, and unable to do so.
