Dog Kennels Shuswap Pet Resort
If you are a Sicamous, Salmon Arm, Vernon or a neighbouring community resident planning a business or vacation trip, your cherished pet may be unable to accompany you. Fortunately, you can rest easy with the knowledge that your dog is safe in Shuswap Pet Resort’s state-of-the-art kennel. Even if you will only be away for a weekend, Shuswap Pet Resort will gladly accommodate your dog’s needs. Planning a holiday for an extended period of time or are away at your work? Shuswap Pet Resort also offers long term boarding.
As a guest, your pet will be assigned a caregiver who will quickly acquaint themselves with your dog’s routines. The caregiver will serve as your dog’s primary caretaker, and this staff member will play with, care for and walk your dog. To maximize your dog’s experience, we provide an abundance of toys, music, and resting spots.
Special considerations are also provided for pets which are elderly and not as sociable as they used to be. Our staff will administer oral medication as directed by our guest’s owners. While you are away, you can rest easy with the knowledge that your dog is well cared for. Who knows? At Shuswap Pet Resort, your pets may think they are the ones on vacation!
Plot rest stops along the way while traveling with your dog, and plan to stop every 3-5 hours to allow your dog to relieve himself, drink water and stretch his legs (more or less depending on your dog’s needs). Make a list of several veterinary hospitals that are easily accessible from your route, preferably within one hour’s drive from any given point. Check that they will be open during your travel.
Bring for the car ride:
- Dog seat belt or crate / kennel
