FAQs About Pet Boarding, Fairbanks North Star, Alaska

When going on a vacation, you’ll want to know that your furry pals are taken care of. Instead of leaving them with friends, give your pets their own holiday by dropping them off at a pet boarding service where trained, animal-loving professionals will look after them. Here’s all you need to know about leaving your pet at an animal hotel.

4 Frequently Asked Questions About Pet Hotels

What should I pack?

When taking your pet to a kennel, bring along food and any toys they like. Just like human hotels, meals are not usually included with their stay package, so make sure you’re leaving enough for the entire length of their stay plus a little extra to cover for any delays. The facility will have toys, but their favorite items will comfort them in case they get a little homesick.

What activities are available for my pet?

Is grooming offered?

At an extra fee, some pet boarding services do offer cat and dog grooming such as nail clipping, teeth-brushing, baths, and haircuts. Ask your hotel whether they offer such services.

Will I get updates while I’m away?

Pet boarding facilities often offer personalized updates to pet parents while they’re out of town. They may send emails or text messages with pictures of your dog or cat enjoying themselves so you don’t worry that they’re missing you too much.
