Are your plans set for the upcoming holidays? If so, great job! While seasonal festivities are exciting for humans, they can be overwhelming for pets. If you’re going out of town, be sure to book your pet’s boarding before we put up a “no vacancy” sign. And if you’re hosting Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, or any other upcoming holiday, be sure your pet is groomed to perfection to impress your guests.
You may be wondering if adding another item to your holiday prep list is worth it, but the popularity of these services speaks for itself. Why do so many pet parents have their pets boarded and groomed for the holiday?
Boarding Your Pet with Us Is Anything BUT Boring
1. Boarding Your Pet with a Vet Is a Safe Choice for Their Staycation.
When it comes to your pet’s care while you’re away, you can trust the professionals who already know and love them. Not only are we familiar with their particular health needs and can administer medication, but your pets will stay active under the supervision of our qualified and caring staff. Our kennel techs give every pet as much individual care and outdoor time as possible. We make each pet that stays with us feel welcome, loved, and comfortable while they’re not at home.
2. Get Peace of Mind While Simplifying Holiday Celebrations.
Knowing your pets are enjoying a happy howl-iday with us provides you with peace of mind, so you can focus on celebrating with your human family. Don’t worry about tripping over your dog in the kitchen or stepping on your cat’s tail as you clean and cater to your company. Nor will you have to explain to generous guests that your dog and cat don’t need any more handouts, despite how adorable they are and how much they beg.
3. Does Grandma Have Pet Allergies?
If visiting friends or family struggle with allergies, asthma, or other pet-related medical conditions, booking a stay at our facility will reduce the allergens floating around your home. It’s an easy and considerate way to show your guests how much you care about their health.

4. Grooming Lets Your Pet Put Their Best Paw Forward.
Before your guests arrive for the holidays, have your pet groomed so they will feel their best and look paw-some! In our full-service pet salon, we clean ears, trim furry faces and paws, condition coats, and more.
Having your pet groomed removes excess fur, minimizing what you have to vacuum later, and helps your pet smell as amazing as they look. We also trim your pet’s nails to keep them healthy and to reduce the risk of unwanted scratches.
5. Cold Weather Causes Dry, Itchy Skin. Grooming Helps.
Dry winter weather can cause itchy, flaky skin for pets. Having your pet bathed reduces allergens embedded in fur and moisturizes your pet’s coat and skin. When your furry companion gets groomed, they will leave feeling and looking their best!
