Going on vacation? When boarding your dog, you never want to traumatize either yourself or your dog. To avoid any discomfort, here are some things to consider when choosing the best dog boarding in Chapel Hill for your pup.
First of all, you want the peace of mind knowing that your beloved pet is getting the very best care possible. You want to be sure that your dog is fed properly, exercised and watered sufficiently, comfortable, and treated with kindness. Get references from the owner of the boarding facility, and check them out!
Equally as important is to make sure your pup will be safe. Since some dogs (other people's dogs, of course!) tend to have aggressive behaviors, you want to board your pup with someone who knows how to handle such dogs.
The construction of the kennel is another thing to look at. The kennel should be constructed in such a way that it can be cleaned thoroughly and quickly. Since wood tends to hold odors, bacteria, and other potentially unhealthy residual matter, a wood constructed kennel shouldn't be your first choice. Aluminum and concrete, on the other hand, are easy to clean and do not hold such unwanted matter. They can be sanitized properly, so you can be sure that your dog is in a healthy environment.
Does the kennel receive sufficient sunlight? Sunlight is healthy! If the kennel receives just a small amount of sunlight, or none at all, it will stay damp and cool, a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. On the other hand, if sunlight is allowed to surround and enter the building, there is considerably less risk for unhealthy mold and mildew growth.
