Finding out that you have termites, spiders, or another pest in your home is not enjoyable. But, you will want to resolve the problem quickly to minimize the impact that it has on the long-term. It is also important to get your family out of the house so that they are not exposed in a negative way. While some people try their own methods to get rid of pests, you should just rely on professionals right away. The best way to handle your dog is to contact a dog boarding facility and schedule a multi-day stay there.
Exercise and Socialization
If your daily routine involves taking your dog for a walk in the morning and another one in the evening, you may feel confident that your dog gets a lot of exercise and socialization during these outings. But, as soon as the fumigation process begins on your property, you will need a place for your dog to stay. A dog boarding facility may automatically include outside playtime with other dogs that will encourage exercise. Also, just being with other dogs will lead to socializing your own dog, which is something that you may not be able to accomplish if you were to take your dog to a family member's or friend's house.
While it may be easy to ask a family member or friend for a favor to watch your dog, they may be busy and not be able to keep an eye on them throughout the day. It is nice to know that a boarding facility can provide guaranteed availability when you give them a call and let them know your situation. Make sure to schedule as far in advance as possible to avoid the chance of trying to schedule on a day that is full.
Ability to Stay Longer
When the fumigation is scheduled, you may expect for it to be finished at the right time. But, it is possible for delays to happen or for the house to not be ready to move back into due to chemical residue. This can delay the return to your home by a day or two, so you will appreciate having a dog boarding facility that you know will not have a problem with you extending your dog's stay until you can bring them home.
While dog sitting is an option, you cannot beat the convenience provided by a dog boarding company.
