Three tips to help ease separation anxiety

SPONSORED

Staying in a new place can cause distress for our four-legged friends. But there are ways to help ease that separation anxiety. Cedar Lane Kennels offers three tips for easing separation anxiety during pet boarding:

1. Owners should share their concerns

Make sure to let the Cedar Lane Kennels staff know if your furry friend suffers from separation anxiety. The kennel’s philosophy in caring for your dog is to eliminate all stress instead of managing it. To that end, each pet is handled in a calm, friendly and non-threatening manner. And 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 our care.

2. Exercise and socialization are key

Keeping pets busy helps to expend anxious energy. That’s why Cedar Lane Kennels staff members make playtime a priority while your pet is in their care. You can count on them to take your dog for several runs, practice their tricks, and keep them mentally and physically engaged during their stay.

3. Pack the kibble

While Cedar Lane Kennels provides all bedding, toys, and bowls for your furry friend, you can bring the food your dog is accustomed to eating. Continuing your pet on his or her regular diet is not only familiar, it can help ward off any stomach upset.

If you are looking for a place to board your pet, look no further than Cedar Lane Kennels. Whether it’s for a few days, a few weeks, or even longer, you can rest assured knowing your companion is in good hands.
