Traveling With Your Pet vs. Boarding Your Pet

The holiday season is here and that means lots and lots of traveling (for most)! For some pet owners, the thought of leaving their precious pooch behind doesn’t even register, while others consider dropping them off for a much-needed doggy vacation at a local dog boarding facility. Whatever your plans are this holiday season, our team here at Coastal Paws Pet Resort has come up with a few pros and cons to traveling with your pet versus leaving them at a trusted boarding facility. 

Traveling With Your Pet

When making the decision to bring your pet along for the adventure, there are many things you need to consider beforehand. Pet-friendly hotels, driving/flying with your pet, how your pet will act during the vacation and pretty much planning the entire trip around your pet are all things you need to consider before taking off. While enjoying a vacation with your pet has never been easier nowadays, this can still seem stressful and unnecessary to some pet owners looking for a relaxing vacation. 

Boarding Your Pet

While boarding your pet might seem like the last resort if you can’t take them with you on your vacation, most pet owners don’t realize that pet boarding is like a vacation for your pet! At least it is at Coastal Paws Pet Resort! Your pet has their own suite with everything they need and they get plenty of exercise, love, care, and attention from our professionally trained staff. You can rest assured that your pet is in good hands while you enjoy your vacation. You can find more information about our luxury pet boarding facility here.

While there are pros and cons to both, pet boarding can be a great way to ensure you have a relaxing vacation and your pet is safe and being well cared for. Our team here at Coastal Paws Pet Resort is always here to help answer any questions you may have. Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or to get started planning your pet’s next visit to our luxury boarding facility!
