Welcome back to our blog! In part one of this short blog series, we looked at some of the reasons to consider boarding your dog during a move. There are so many benefits of dog boarding when you are relocating from one home to another — benefits that both you and your furry friend can enjoy. Here are the top three reasons to board your dog during a move that we discussed in part one:

  • Dog boarding may place less stress on your dog.
  • Our dog boarding facility provides them with a safe and comfortable environment.
  • Dog boarding reduces the risk of having your belongings chewed up during a move.

Below are three more reasons to board your dog when you are moving.

Maintains Your Dog’s Schedule

Dogs, like humans, are creatures of habit. Keeping your dog on a schedule has many benefits that can improve their overall health and well-being. Unfortunately, when you’re in the throes of moving everything you own from one house to another, it can be extremely difficult to maintain a normal schedule, which will ultimately affect your pet. Maybe you can’t get home in time to feed your dog his dinner or you have to stay up late packing and can’t take him on a walk. No matter the scenario, a move always interrupts a normal schedule. Therefore, dog boarding comes in very handy when it comes to keeping your dog’s regular routine. Our pet resort attendees can keep your pup on his regular feeding, walking, and exercise schedule, which can keep him healthy and happy during a move.

Provides Peace of Mind

For some pet owners, the moving process can seem even more daunting for those who need to hire professional packers and movers. Many dogs, especially rescue dogs, are uncertain of strangers entering the home, and react to these situations in a variety of ways. If your dog gets nervous around new and strange people and you plan to have movers come to your home to pack and move your belongings, boarding your pup in a pet resort during that process can not only give you peace of mind, but can also reduce the amount of stress and anxiety your dog might experience during a move.

Makes Cleaning Easier

Along with every move comes the cleaning. When most people move into a new house, they go through and clean each room before unpacking their belongings. When you move out of a home, it is almost always your responsibility to ensure that the house and flooring gets a thorough cleaning for the new residents. As a dog owner, this can be one of the most challenging aspects of a move. Whether you have to have the carpets cleaned or want to make sure the house is free of all dog hair, this can be a hard goal to accomplish when your dog is still in the home. Boarding your dog during the cleaning phase can make the entire process much more efficient. And you definitely won’t have to worry about them tracking muddy footprints through the house after you’ve just had the carpets cleaned!
