Enjoy moments together
With the approaching holiday season and the weather becoming more and more beautiful, you have a perfect opportunity for active leisure with your four-legged friend. Unfortunately, travelling is more popular during that period, which can be problematic for dogs and owners equally.
How can you schedule a nice vacation without exposing your four-legged companion to unnecessary stress?
There are several solutions to this issue. Travelling together is certainly the best one of these. Visiting new places is as attractive for dogs as it is for their owners. Unfortunately, circumstances can vary and at times, travelling together is not an option. In such case, you should try to ask your family and friends for help. Surrounded by familiar faces, your dog will be able to feel comfortable enough while the owner is away.
If you cannot leave your pet in custody of friends or family, you may want to consider a dog hotel. This option is becoming more and more popular. As long as the dog has a health book with an updated vaccination record, his vacation can be as nice as that of the owner’s. Most hotels offer separate sleeping corners, daily walking and playing, a large dog park, and several smaller enclosures for more solitary pets. If a dog shows some behavior problems, the personnel can offer services of dog behavior specialists and psychologists, who will take care of the dog’s training.
If your dog is particularly attached to his or her regular home, you may want to consider hiring someone to take care of your dog at home. A pet sitter is a person who will visit your dog every day, feed it, walk it and play with it during your absence. An added advantage of this solution is that the dog is less stressed and can spend the vacation at a familiar, safe place.
Whichever option you choose, there’s always the separation issue. In order to prepare your dog for a few weeks’ separation, you will need to introduce certain changes gradually. If you intend to use your friends, you should first leave the dog with them for a weekend. A pet sitter should visit you a few times before you leave. And if your dog is going to a hotel, he should visit the place before he is actually expected to stay there. With this kind of background, your pet will bravely face the separation challenge.
