There are numerous things humans do that dogs actually hate, and they’re not likely to change anytime soon.

“Whether it’s for the holidays, a vacation or an unexpected family emergency, every pet owner someday might need alternative care for their pets”, so writes author and columnist Cathy M. Rosenthal in an article for San Antonia Express-News. While your dog is very dear to you, you may not always bring him along during a vacation. Good thing there is a Bay Area dog boarding facility that can keep your dog safe and ensure he also has a happy holiday.

Dog owners with pets deemed not fit to travel by the local vet may have to postpone their out-of-state travel plans and settle for local tours instead. After all, the Bay Area is abundant when it comes to attractions, including the Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge. How about those who are set on traveling so they can spend quality time with their family and friends who are out of state? In this case, leaving their pets behind in the care of others, like a neighbor or a Bay Area dog boarding service, can be considered. There is an advantage in leaving an animal companion in the care of a neighbor, relative, or friend, financially speaking. In most cases, though, dog boarding in San Francisco Bay Area is the more sensible choice than obligating a family member or neighbor to agree to pet sitting duties.

Being left alone inside cages for a whole day can put significant physical and psychological stress on dogs. Their social nature makes isolation and confinement traumatic, and the results of the study confirmed the need to look for better accommodations to ensure the health and safety of canine pets while their owners are away. Fortunately, more and more day boarding centers are practicing cage-free boarding for pooches left in their care. These places provide services that reflect the standard of care that a dog’s own family would provide their pet. Bay Area dog boarding centers such as SF Hound Lounge, for instance, assure owners that dogs will receive constant companionship throughout their stay as they get to play and interact with the staff and other dogs in shared spaces.
