Dog Boarding Tips!

Once you land your first dog boarding booking, you’ll be given the opportunity to meet the lucky pup and their owners beforehand. It’s important that you get to know the dog and ensure that they’re a good fit for you.

It’s also important to discuss with the owner how often the dog needs to be walked and whether it requires any medication. Be sure to keep on top of all of this!

If both sides are happy, the booking will go ahead as planned! Remember, you don’t need to provide food – all of this will be covered by the owner.

From then on, all you have to do is show the dog a super fun time!

If you have any questions at all, you can always give us a call. We always support our carers through thick and thin, so be sure to make use of us!
