We know you want your pet to be part of your summertime memories this year. However, if your pet gets skittish around fireworks, large events, or new environments, you may want to consider booking them for a stay at The Good Dog Spot. Your dog or cat will feel loved and cherished and enjoy plenty of fun while boarding with us, but what other benefits does boarding have? Here’s three of them.

AVOID STRESS

Summer nights are filled with outdoor activities, and those can sometimes include fireworks. This is why the Fourth of July, Labor Day and other similar holidays can be panic-inducing for many animals. It’s most likely due to the combination of sudden loud noises and flashing lights associated with them. Instead of exposing your pup to fireworks around or near your home, keep them at a safe location away from the distractions. If your dog is comfortable at The Good Dog Spot – and we hope they are! – they will be much happier here than around fireworks and other similar concerns.

FLEXIBILITY

Summer travel plans are fun, but what if your furry friends aren’t allowed? Even though you want to include your pets in on the memories, sometimes it’s not always an option. Last minute plans are common during the warmer months, too, and you don’t want to scramble to find a space for your pup. For those circumstances, it can be helpful to keep your dogs at a boarding facility like The Good Dog Spot. It’s a win-win for the whole family. You can have the flexibility for those last minute summer plans, and your dog stays in a friendly, safe environment.

COMFORT AND SAFETY

This leads to our last benefit discussed today. As a pet owner, safety and comfort is high on your priority list. If you imagine a pet boarding facility as sterile, cold, and uninviting, think again! Pets staying over at our facility are welcomed, loved, and treated like part of our own family. Your pet – cats or dogs – will have fun days packed with playtime and daycare as well as a safe, comfortable spot to sleep. In addition to the standard amenities, we also offer extras like holiday meals and special comb outs to ensure your pet feels loved and cared for. If you find yourself worrying over your pup, you can access our webcams from any device connected to the Internet, even if you’re miles away. Have peace of mind knowing how your pet is doing while you’re away and enjoy yourself even more because of it! If you’re new to The Good Dog Spot, check out our virtual tours of both our Northampton and Chicopee locations ahead of time.
