What Is Your Choice? Dog Hotel or Dog Sitter?

It is merely impossible to take care of your pet when you are out of the town. When it happens, searching for quality dog care is your priority. Many dog owners agree that vet boarding is not usually an excellent choice for pets as they are forced to stay in rooms near sick animals in short space. Therefore, you can choose our dog boarding in Oklahoma.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Pet Sitter

The most significant benefit to consider is hiring a dog sitter so that your dog can stay in its home when you’re away. Your pet does not have to sleep, eat or play in an unfamiliar location. A good dog sitter will come to your home frequently, provide with food, play with it and spend quality time.

Compared to the advantages, the disadvantages are more significant. Your pet may be comfortable in your home, but if you’re not there, it could become anxious. It may make it give up sleep, food or it may even tear up furniture. Your dog might even get tense with time when you leave home keeping them alone. Psychologically, it is better to board your pet outside of home if you are not there for an extended time.

Another disadvantage is you do not know the quality of your dog sitter until you come back. Similarly, your pet may need a supervisor in an emergency, due to lack of someone always watching your dog, he will have nobody to take care of him.

The Ups and Downs of Dog Hotels

A dog hotel has several benefits. First, you can be assured that your dog will be taken good care of if you choose an excellent pet hotel. Our Oklahoma dog boarding center employs staff trained to take care of your dog. Rather than with a neighborhood dog sitter, your dog will get several people around him for care and fun.

As additional perks, you add on dog grooming during your dog’s stay in our hotel. You can also choose pet hotels with plenty of outdoor space to play and clean indoor play areas.

A dog hotel is the safer and healthier choice for your dog. There it will also be surrounded by staff for emergency related to any health concern. They will stay in a monitored environment to ensure safety. If you want to pamper your baby this way, come to our dog daycare in Edmond, OK. Here at Puppy Paws Hotel & Spa, we would like to take care of your pets in your absence.

Make Sure Your Dog Boarding Walks Your Dog

You’re on vacation, so relax! Leave all your concerns at home, especially those for your beloved dog. Make sure your dog is well looked after, so select a dog boarding facility in Oklahoma to keep your pet as healthy and happy as possible.

Recruiting a pet sitter does not guarantee that your dog gets a regular walk. A pet sitter may use a fenced yard to exercise your dog, which may not be enough to run and play. The same can also apply to dogs boarded in an animal hospital.

Animal hospitals are usually overburdened and cannot take every dog for a walk every day. The best choice is to provide doggy daycare at a dog boarding center in Oklahoma as part of a boarding package. You can choose what’s best for your pet. It will also allow you to enjoy your holiday, as you know that your dogs are having a great time too.

Dogs Walking On Road

You might want to ask yourself if regular walks away from home are important to your dog. In addition, veterinarians and other animal health experts agree. Dogs require daily exercise, which is even more important as they grow older.

As instinctive as dogs are, they like to explore new fragrances. It is contrary to their nature not to give them access to new environments and smells. In Oklahoma, the Puppy Paws Hotel and Spa is one dog boarding center that pays close attention to your dog’s needs. Our long experience with dogs has taught us to walk every day. For this reason, we offer all our dogs natural walks up to four times a day. Our well-trained handlers make dogs safe and happy when walking outside. When they come back, they eat and sleep better than if they didn’t get that much needed exercise. Do you want more information about us? Contact us at Puppy Paws Hotel and Spa before your next trip!

A Doggie’s New Year Resolutions for 2019

New Year Resolution

Happy new year! It’s February, but as they say, it’s better late than never. Yes, like our humans, we dogs make New Year resolutions. Here’s what I’m planning to do in 2019!

Adhere to My Resolution

Yes, we have a little trouble following our resolutions, just like humans. However, I will add that in this area, our people can help us just like the caregivers in Puppy Paws Hotel and Spa, my favorite dog daycare in Edmond, OK.

Weight Loss

When it comes to weight loss, we dogs depend on our people to help us with it. If you also think your dog needs to lose some weight in 2019, you can help him by giving a little less food and reducing treats.

Work out

More exercise will help me keep a healthy weight and yes, this needs my humans to take me on a walk every day. It is also good for my humans. After all, they also have the same resolution!

Make More Friends

In Puppy Paws Hotel and Spa, where I like to stay for the day, I have lots of friends. I never feel bored when I make new friends. It makes me happier when new friends join the pack in my dog daycare in Edmond, OK. I like to welcome them and play with my ropes. My humans who are reading this can help me stick to my 4th resolution by letting their dogs come to daycare too!

Fetch More Balls

I love playing with my humans! ‘Fetching the ball’ is my favorite game. If you bring me more balls, I will be able to stay healthy while having fun!

Naps

My humans love to sleep and so do I. Moreover, both of us have hectic schedules every day, and thus, we deserve more naps.

Hike

I love to accompany my human in traveling and hiking. At my daycare, we get to play in a big yard outside. Therefore, my last 7th resolution is to hike more.

Let Your Dog Celebrate Valentine’s with Us

Valentines special Dog day Care

Love is in the air. After all, it is the month of February. You’re getting ready for a date with your red dress and heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, but how will your doggie be celebrating?

Why Vaccination Is Obligatory for Your Pets

A Doctor Vaccinate A dog

For your pet’s wellness and safety, Puppy Paws Salon and Spa, a top-rated dog boarding business in Edmond, OK has strict health standards. People don’t run out of excuses to avoid vaccinations, but the truth is that vaccination is imperative for boarding and there are valid reasons to do so. The question is always asked, “Why are vaccinations required?”

The main reason for vaccination is the health of your pet. Vaccines have a well-established record of preventing major pet diseases. With the development of technology, vaccinations are improved to ensure your animal can be safer, better tolerated and even for longer lasting immunity.

Vaccinations protect both your dog and any unvaccinated dog that you and your dog come in contact with. You become less likely to unknowingly serve as a carrier of some nasty diseases and to spread it among other animals by thinking that your pet has no illness.

Because some people do not make decisions for their pets wisely when money is needed, vaccinations should become obligatory. In our dog boarding center in Edmond, OK the vaccination of every dog we admit is imperative. You can’t skip this part for maintaining a healthy environment for all the puppies! Puppy Paws Salon and Spa is able to provide exceptional dog boarding to Edmond because we keep high standards which you can rely on for the wellbeing of your pet during boarding or play time.

Spread Awareness on Pet Obesity

Extra pounds on a dog can put his health at risk, just like humans. According to veterinary surveys, 56% of dogs are clinically overweight in the United States. To lower the health risk of a pet, ask your vet for a guideline on food habits and exercise. Exercise is a must for a dog to stay fit, especially with age, and the owner must monitor his food habits also. According to a survey, 25% of American pet owners are too busy to look after their dogs’ fitness. If you find yourself among them, you can reach out to Puppy Paws Hotel & Spa in Edmond. We can take care of your dog whenever you are busy to make sure he gets lots of love and playtime!
