Everyday, we watch the dogs and cats come and go at All Kreatures. It's so much fun and so entertaining. We get to hear all the stories about the exciting trips the people are taking. Some are going to see family and friends. Some are going to the beach or on a cruise. Others are just taking a business trip, but travel still sounds like fun to us.
The dogs and cats that will be boarding with us are also on vacation and they should look forward to a good time as well. Most of the people request Playtime, Nature Walk or Kuddles. That pleases us, because we know how important it is to keep everybody happy while they are boarding. We have even figured out why it helps so much.
You would expect that it keeps pets busy and provides exercise, but did you know how important daily exercise is for social skills? Young dogs and those who lack confidence really need the extra daily attention. It goes without saying that the old guys expect and deserve it. Activities are also a great way for our staff to build a positive relationship with the dogs and cats while they are boarding. We get to know them better and sometimes we even spot problems before they become real issues. We think the biggest reason of all that Activities are important is that they relieve boredom. Boredom can sometimes lead to behavioral problems that that can result in a troubled stay. Anything we can do to avoid a ruined vacation is well worth the effort!
We believe that everyone deserves to have a good time while they are away from home, including the four-legged family member. These are my thoughts for now.
