The silly season is in full swing across Australia and as the weather warms up and the working year draws to a close, many of us are dreaming about our upcoming summer holidays, whether that be a week or two along the coast, or a getaway further afield!
As much as we love our furry friends, it’s not always practical to take them along for the trip, especially if flying is involved. Leaving your pets at home however isn’t a great alternative or a number of reasons which we’ll cover in more detail. Thankfully, top notch pet boarding accommodation is available in Melbourne to keep your dog comfortable while you get away from it all. Here’s a few reasons for opting for this option:
As anyone whose lived in Melbourne for a full 12 months will know, summers here can be scorching hot, as in 40+ degrees scorching hot. Whilst many homes have air conditioning to keep us cool on those days, we also know it’s an expensive luxury. If you’re going away for an extended period of time, keeping the air con on 24/7 to keep your pets cool isn’t practical or affordable. Meanwhile state-of-the-art climate control systems at our pet boarding hotel will ensure your furry friend stays comfortable, no matter the temperature outside.
Our pets, especially dogs, are highly social creatures who thrive on companionship and regular social interaction. Leaving them at home for prolonged periods of time will have them feeing lonely, which is the last thing we want! By giving your dog their own little break at a luxurious, sociable boarding hotel instead of leaving your pets at home, they’ll not only have the chance to make some new friends of their own, they’ll also be kept happy and occupied until your return.
Summer is marked by celebrations, from Christmas to New Year’s Eve and Australia Day. One thing they all have in common, apart from (generally) warm weather is loud, attention-grabbing fireworks. It’s no secret pets can be startled by these loud sudden sounds and the bright colours that accompany them, with some going to great lengths to escape this source of stress. All the more reason to place in them in the care of our pet loving experts who can watch over them day and night while you’re away.
Last but certainly not least, your dog still needs to be feed a solid two (or three) meals a day and kept adequately hydrated with plenty of water – especially important in those hot summer months. By staying in one of our exclusive dog suites, your best friend will be served those solid meals and drinks, sourced from premium quality pet food to fuel them through those long summer days.
