Today, there are more pet hotels and pet resorts for them to choose from than ever before. They can even personalize their dogs’ preferences at the pet resort to ensure their pets get a service that rivals what they themselves get while vacationing. As the holidays approach, we have a few tips and ideas that you, as a pet owner, will find invaluable in finding five-star pet accommodations this season.

Pet Hotel Tip 1: Make your plans well in advance of the holidays

The biggest secret to finding the best pet resort or hotel for your furry friend is making his or her holiday plans well in advance to find the right accommodation in good time. Many people begin planning for their holidays months ahead. As a pet owner, you must begin looking for the right pet hotel for the canine or feline family member at around the same time and reserve your pet’s spot early.

We recommend that you begin the search for the ideal pet hotel online, and learn as much as you can about how these hotels operate, what is expected of you and your pet.

Visit the prospective facility’s website to find out what they promise and check out the reviews to discover what past clients have to say about them.

Pet Hotel Tip 2: Ask the Right Questions & Take a Tour

The most important part of finding the ideal accommodation for your furry family member is asking the right questions.

With so many pet resorts and care centers available today, it is very important that you make the right choice, and this is dependent on how much you know about what your pet wants and what the hotel can offer. Pet care centers offer a wide variety of options and you want to find one that offers the activities your pet enjoys.

Once you have narrowed down your search to two or three pet hotels, you can pay them a visit to see the kind of equipment and space they have available for the pets and to find out the specific details about their pet care practices, personnel, and ‘style’.

Some vital questions you should get answers to include:

  • How does the staff interact with dogs?
  • What basic services are offered? Are there any upgrade options available and if so, what?
  • How does the facility handle emergencies?
  • What health and safety policies are in place?
  • How does the facility care for older dogs and dogs with special requirements?

Pet Hotel Tip 3: Prepare your pet for their stay

The best pet hotel or pet resort you can find is essentially a facility with a team of experienced professionals who take good care of the pet guests. These professionals understand that each pet is unique and will treat your pet as an individual. If you are planning a long trip, consider sending your pet for a day of daycare or a one-night stay first to get them accustomed to the pet resort and its caregivers.

When you are preparing to go on vacation, dedicate some time to researching and finding the right pet hotel; picking the right place for your pets to stay while you are off having fun can give you the peace of mind needed to enjoy your trip.
