Going out on family holidays can be quite stressful, especially if you own a pet dog. You have to bother about where to drop your loved pet. Luckily, there are many safe doggie daycare nearby where you can leave your dog and make sure that it is well taken care of. Pet hotels basically let you check your pet in, watch over it, and keep it happy while you are enjoying your trip.

When leaving your pet at a pet hotel, you have to make sure that they have the facilities and services that will assure your pet's safety and well-being. Here are a few things to check on before leaving them at the pet hotel.


Always check what type of food they will be giving to your dog. Make sure that they are serving high-quality dog food or you can also ask if they offer homemade all meat meals, especially if your pet is on an all-meat diet. More often than not, dogs get digestion problems especially if they are given a different brand of dog food. 

Play areas

Make sure that the pet hotel has a big yard or backyard where they can let your pet play, run around and meet other animals. You can also ask them for scheduled play and exercise time.

Special medical attention and other services

Most pet hotels offer other services such as pet parlors and special medical attention for dogs that have problems like degenerative myelopathy or arthritis. It would be best to make sure that the hotel has an on-call veterinarian in case of emergencies.
