Christmas is a great time for us to catch up with our families and friends. Whether it be holidays or day trips, having to leave your pet behind can make these reunions bittersweet.
Socialisation For Your Pets
While you’re off catching up with your friends, let your pets do the same! Socialising your pets can bring about a range of benefits to their health and wellbeing. For example, socialising your dog helps to develop their confidence and reduce their anxiety when they meet other dogs.
Physical Exercise & Enrichment
Getting enough exercise is a challenge for both humans and animals alike. But when it comes to our pets, they rely on us to give them the exercise they need. When we can’t provide that, this can lead to health issues or destructive behaviours. At Samford Pet Resort, there’s plenty of room for your pet to play. Dogs guests are treated to a range of enrichment toys while they enjoy their supervised, social playtime. Our cat guest rooms offer comfy cushions and large spaces with multiple levels to climb. Plus, these rooms are equipped with reverse cycle Air Conditioning, fans and insulation for comfort – the perfect spot for your cat to stretch out and doze on a warm summer’s day.
If you’re heading out for the day, treating your dog to doggy day care not only provides socialisation and exercise, it can help keep them safe too. This is particularly relevant for dog owners who typically allow their pet to roam freely throughout the house. When dogs are left home alone for the day, they risk becoming lonely, bored and frustrated, which can lead to destructive behaviours. This can mean destroying personal belongings or chewing on dangerous items. If you’ve ever experienced this, we can relate to your frustration! But, no matter how frustrated we get, we’re always relieved to know they’re ok. Providing your dog with daycare means they’ll be supervised and entertained while you’re out, keeping them safe, and ensuring your peace of mind.
Plus, Samford Pet Resort offers an online service known as “My Pet Space”. My Pet Space allows you to log on to the Samford Pet Resort website to see your pet having fun and enjoying their stay at Samford. This allows you to monitor and keep track of what your pet is getting up to during their stay at our resort.
We all benefit from having structure in our lives. You may have noticed that like us, our dogs are also creatures of habit. Maintaining their daily routine of walks and playtime when you aren’t home satisfies their habitual need, gives them something to look forward to and makes them feel at ease.
At Christmas time, you deserve to take a well-earned break. Catching up with the family often means having to leave our furry family members behind. We understand how hard this can be, but treating your pet to a holiday of their own offers them an array of benefits.
