Our pets are creatures of habit. They enjoy their routines. Bathroom, ball, snack, nap, repeat. The busy winter months, rife with holiday celebrations, frantic shopping trips, and family gatherings can sometimes cause those routines to take a hit. As anxious as we humans can get during the hustle and bustle, our dogs and cats feel it too.

If you’re hosting guests this holiday season or simply having the family together after a couple of years that made reunions a challenge, pet boarding may help to give you and your pet added peace of mind.

Here’s are four reasons to consider a mini-vacay for your best pal:

  • Social anxiety: Some pets adore the extra attention a family gathering delivers. And some don’t. For others, it can be a stressful situation – particularly amidst large crowds and boisterous noise.
  • “Shoo” fits: Not only do our dogs occasionally shy away from strange houseguests, but the houseguests themselves may not be animal lovers. There’s no easy way to say it, but some individuals just aren’t “dog people” or “animal people,” in general.
  • Too many cooks in the kitchen: It’s also challenging, to say the least, to juggle hosting duties – not to mention catering responsibilities – while your best pal is trying to wedge themselves between you and the punch bowl, or simply staying underfoot in a misguided attempt to stay out of the way.
  • Sweet temptations: Holiday parties and New Year’s soirees are often laden with spreads of foods and snacks that may not be the best if ingested by your four-footed friend. And we’re not saying they’ll help themselves to the buffet when your back is turned, but… you know the old saying: “never trust a dog to watch your plate.”
