You want what’s best for your dog, but sometimes work or vacation travel takes you away for a while. That’s why Opal Ridge offers loving care for your companion while you’re away that is both convenient and affordable. We know you have a lot of choices, including pet sitting, but dog boarding with Opal Ridge offers much, much more! Instead of pet sitting, why not allow our staff of experienced and trusted professionals to give your dog the best care possible? At Opal Ridge, we are excited to offer your pet lots of care and belly rubs.
We believe that every dog deserves the same TLC they get at home with you. And while, we are all different, we all share something in common with you: We love dogs!
Customize your Opal Ridge dog boarding experience with a new hairdo. Or, request extra snuggling and a daily rub down for some additional love. Pet sitting meets the basic needs of your companion such as feeding and walking a few times a day. But at Opal Ridge, your dog’s needs and wants are met and surpassed, day and night, by a staff of caring professionals. We want nothing more than to make your dog’s time away from home memorable. Don’t be surprised if your companion can’t wait to come back for another vacation!
The safety and comfort of your dog is very important to us so your pet is never left alone at night while visiting.
How to prepare your pet for being boarded Be sure your pet knows basic commands and is well socialized around other people and pets; if your pet has an aggression problem or is otherwise unruly, she may not be a good candidate for boarding. Before taking your animal to the kennel, make sure she is current on vaccinations.
It's also a good idea to accustom your pet to longer kennel stays by first boarding her during a short trip, such as a weekend excursion. This allows you to work out any problems before boarding your pet for an extended period.
Before you head for the kennel, double-check that you have your pet's medications and special food (if any), your veterinarian's phone number, and contact information for you and a local backup.
When you arrive with your pet at the boarding facility, remind the staff about any medical or behavior problems your pet has, such as a history of epilepsy or fear of thunder. After the check-in process, hand your pet to a staff member, say good-bye, and leave. Avoid long, emotional partings, which may upset your pet.
Finally, have a good trip, knowing that your pet is in good hands and will be happy to see you when you return.
