There are a lot of things to consider when you need to be away from home for an extended period of time.

Who will water the plants? Do I need a house sitter? And what should I do with my dog while I’m away?

When it’s time to travel, one option to consider is a dog hotel. A dog hotel is a dog boarding facility that specifically caters to each pet’s needs on an individual basis. We here at Barks N' Rec provide top-rated dog boarding options at our dog hotel. It’s our pleasure to ensure that all of our furry guests have a safe and friendly environment to enjoy while you’re away from home.

But we’ve heard a lot of misinformation out there about dog hotels. Some people wonder if dog hotels are safe, sanitary, or a sound choice for their pets. But not to worry — we took the time to address some common misconceptions about dog hotels, so you’ll know what to expect from a great boarding facility.

Myth: Dogs are just cooped up in cages all day.

Not true! While dog hotels provide comfortable quarters for your dog to rest, they also have indoor and outdoor play areas for your pup to roam. It’s important to find a dog hotel that prioritizes ample space and cleanliness in these areas. Barks N' Rec has two spacious indoor and outdoor spaces for dogs to run and play, which are consistently cleaned and sanitized.

Myth: All the dogs are mixed together.

Nope. Every dog has their own tendencies, which is often based on their breed and size. A great dog hotel takes the time to group your pup with other dogs that are similar in breed, size, or temperament. And we know some pups just want their own space too. So Barks N' Rec ensures that every dog has the opportunity to relax on their own (or with a human friend).

Myth: No one watches over the dogs.

Not a chance. At Barks N' Rec, our loving attendants will give your pup lots of love and attention while you’re away. We also monitor play areas so everyone gets along well. We love to keep our furry friends company throughout their stay. So your fur baby will get lots of care and cuddles while they’re with us.

Myth: No one checks dogs for vaccinations.

Not on our watch! We make sure every dog is up to date on vaccinations before they stay at our dog hotel. We also take the time to do an interview process with you and your pup, so that we know everything we need to about your dog's personality and preferences. Going above and beyond is key to a great boarding facility and we’re happy to go that extra mile.

There are a lot of things to consider when it comes to choosing a dog hotel. And it can be stressful finding the right fit for you and your pup.

But Barks N' Rec is here to provide an easy solution for your dog boarding needs. We’ll make sure your furry family member is safe, happy, and cared for while you’re away.
