Three tips to finding a great boarding facility

SPONSORED

When you are away for a business trip or vacation, you want to know your pet is in good hands. Finding the right overnight care is essential. Not sure where to begin? Here are some tips to finding the right pet boarding for your four-legged friend:

1. Take a tour

Ask to visit the boarding facility so you can see where your dog will be staying and playing.

The Downers-Grove based Cedar Lane Kennels, for instance, is surrounded by more than three acres of nature, including natural grass, trees and flowers. And with more than 50 outdoor runs, you can have peace of mind knowing your dog will get exercise and sleep soundly.

2. Ask about amenities

Boarding can be stressful for pets. That’s why Cedar Lane Kennels provides the best in happy pet boarding by offering a variety of amenities to reduce your furry friend’s anxiety. The facility is equipped with spacious indoor and covered outdoor runs where pets can get rid of extra energy, climate-controlled heat and air conditioning, bedding with comfortable cots, mats, and benches with soft blankets on top, and solid indoor walls for privacy.

3. Inquire about staff and pet interaction

The Cedar Lane Kennels philosophy in caring for your dog is to eliminate all stress instead of managing it. To that end, the staff handles each dog in a calm, friendly and non-threatening manner. Since every dog is different, staff members adjust their body language, voices, and stature to enable your dog to relax around them. This creates a calm environment that allows your dog to trust the staff and to maintain a balanced state both physically and mentally while in the care of Cedar Lane Kennels.
