Kennel Stress   

Some dogs and cats love going to the kennel, others not so much.  A boarding kennel environment can be stressful for pets who have never been kenneled before or pets that finds a cage/run restrictive.   Whether staying at a boarding kennel is going to stress your pet depends entirely on his or her personality and level of socialization.  

Signs of kennel stress in cats include:

decreased appetite

lack of urination/defecation

dilated pupils

inability to sleep 


Signs of kennel stress in dogs include:


excessive barking, pacing, jumping


decreased appetite


refusal to go to the bathroom outside due to unfamiliar surroundings

cage aggression to different walkers

Please know our boarding staff will try to do everything we can to make each pet’s boarding visit less stressful as possible. It is our goal to make sure each pet is safe and has a clean cage and blanket along with fresh water and food daily.
