If you’ve ever had to leave your pet for an overnight vacation or a last-minute business trip, you may have debated whether to choose dog boarding or a dog sitter for them.
In almost every situation, dog boarders are the better option for both you and your pup. Keep reading to learn why it’s worth it to choose Barks N’ Rec, a dog boarding center in Agoura Hills, for your next trip.
1. Guaranteed exercise and socialization
If your dog likes meeting other four-legged friends while out on their daily walk, imagine how happy they’d be at a boarding center with several other pets.
Dogs have always been social animals, and interaction with others is important for them. It builds their socialization skills, and being in new environments stimulates their mind too.
Regulated playtime hours at Barks N’ Rec allow your pup to meet and socialize with other dogs in a safe environment, which leads us to our next point...
2. Safety for your pet
At our dog boarding facilities in Agoura Hills, your pet gets their own private space to sleep in — complete with their own cot and fleece blanket. This reduces their chance of getting injured, and allows them to feel safe and comfortable.
We also ensure that all our “clients” are up-to-date on their vaccinations, so you can sleep knowing that your dog won’t catch a bug while they’re under our care. Each dog is also assessed for temperament so they don’t cause harm to others during their stay.
And if you’d feel more comfortable checking in on them, we offer a live webcam feed that you can access at any time. Compared to dog sitters, we provide 24/7 care for your best friend so you can rest easy while you’re away.
3. Ease and flexibility for you
If you choose to work with a dog sitter, your schedule needs to align with theirs. If it doesn't, you’re out of luck.
But if you want dependable dog care services that work with your schedule, choose dog boarding instead. Our center is open every day, even on holidays, which makes planning for your next trip that much easier.
We also offer flexible check-in and check-out times in case your plans change suddenly — a luxury that isn’t offered by most dog sitters.
4. Additional services offered
If your dog’s in need of a trim or a full-on grooming, you can leave it to us too.
At Barks N’ Rec, we offer grooming services in addition to daycare and boarding. Just let us know what you’re looking for, and we’ll make sure your dog looks just the way you want come check-out time.
It’ll save you time and effort from making an additional trip to your groomer, and bundling our services can save you some money too. If this is something you’re interested in, just mention this to our staff when you book your appointment.
5. Professional care from passionate experts
White-glove pet care is what we’ve dedicated our lives to, so you can expect us to take care of your pet as if they were our own.
We have experience working with dozens of dogs with different personalities and needs, and each member of our staff has received the training necessary to address any situation that may come up in a dog boarding center. If your pup has special concerns, like dietary restrictions or medications, those are our first priority to ensure their health during their stay.
And this goes without saying: Showering your best friend with love and affection is basically mandatory at Barks N’ Rec.
