Planning Ahead: Key Considerations for Your Pet

Assessing Your Pet’s Needs

Every pet is different, and their needs vary. Consider your pet’s age, health, and temperament. Younger pets or those with medical conditions may require more attention and specialized care. It’s important to think about what environment will be best for your pet – whether staying at home with a sitter, boarding at a facility, or even traveling with you.

Choosing the Right Care Option

You have several options for pet care: professional boarding facilities, hiring a pet sitter, or arranging for a friend or family member to look after your pet. Each option has its benefits. Boarding facilities often offer specialized care and socialization opportunities, while a sitter can provide personalized attention in the familiar surroundings of your home.

Preparing Your Pet for Your Absence

It’s helpful to acclimate your pet to their temporary care situation before you leave. If they’re going to a boarding facility, try a short stay beforehand to help them adjust. For pets staying at home, have the sitter visit a few times in advance to build familiarity.

Maintaining Routine and Comfort

Your pet thrives on routine. Ensure your pet’s caretaker is aware of their regular feeding, walking, and playtime schedules. Familiar toys, bedding, and even a piece of clothing with your scent can comfort your pet while you’re away.
