What to Look for in a Reputable Pet Resort?
Questions to ask when choosing the best pet resort for your family pet.
Q: WHAT CERTIFICATIONS DO YOU HAVE?
This is one of the first questions to ask. You'll want to make sure the staff has been properly trained and is a member of a professional trade organization.
Q: WHAT ABOUT SAFETY AND PLAY?
Look for a resort that offers group play, off-leash opportunities and play programs with exercise. It's also great if your pet can socialize with other dogs, as long as they're separated by breed, size and temperament, and supervised at all times.
Q: WHAT ABOUT THE PROPERTY'S SPACE, LIGHTING AND TEMPERATURE?
You want to feel good that your pet won't be overly hot or cold, that they'll have the right mix of bright and low lighting. The resort should also look and smell clean, with sufficient ventilation and plenty of space to move around. Cats should be separated from dogs, and there should be space between food bowls and litter boxes. Also ask how the pets are kenneled and what kind of bedding is used. Outdoor areas should have protection from wind, rain and snow.
Q: ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS:
Make sure the state has been conducting kennel inspections at the resort. License and certifications should be on display. Also, check online reviews and ask around for great recommendations from people you trust.
