Life in a boarding facility can be very exciting. Most dogs often leave the facility exhausted but happy, and sleep a lot the first couple of days they are home. Our staff makes sure each dog is getting enough exercise, play time, and human interaction throughout each and every day.
Eating habits may change while being boarded. Some will eat like canaries at home and like vultures at a boarding facility. Some dogs may gain or lose a little weight. We provide Purina Pro Plan Chicken dry dog food and mix a little can beef in it. If you would like to provide your own food, please individually package each meal in zip lock bags.
It is important to understand the possible effects of stress on a dog and to do everything possible to minimize stress both prior to and immediately after boarding.
All of the preparation by the pet owner merely points out that successful boarding depends not only upon the pet care facility, but also upon how well the owner prepares the dog for the experience.
For dogs that are 10 years old and older, we require the owner or responsible party to sign an "elder release form". This form lists any medications, medical issues and physical abnormalities. Older dogs usually require much more attention and T.L.C.
We at Palmer Kennels, Inc., want you to be aware that being away from home can be stressful on older pets. Changing their daily routine can upset them.
Stress can be caused from a variety of different factors: being away from home, a new environment, other dogs, new noises, different smells, a change in food or water, the list goes on. Stress triggers physical changes in your older pet. Our staff are compassionate and gentle. We do our best keep all of our guests happy.
Our staff knows no boundaries when it comes to making sure your dog is as comfortable as possible while in our care. If we find that he/she is not doing well, it will be necessary for you or a responsible party to pick up your dog from our facility.
