What Should I Pack for My Dog for Overnight Boarding?

Our dogs are part of our family. We love them and take care of them just like we would do with a member of the family.

But, even if they are our furry and snuggly children, sometimes we simply cannot take them with us everywhere.

What do we do in those moments?

We find the best solution for them to be safe, well taken care of, and for us to have the peace of mind that our furry friends are well until we get back.

One way to do so is by taking them to a dog boarding and/or overnight boarding facility.

Pack Your Dog’s Bag for an Overnight Slumber Party.

Each dog has their own bag with important items that they need when they are away from home. Having those things with them makes the transition a lot easier and gives them a feeling of safety and comfort.

Here’s what to pack for your dog for overnight boarding:

  • Identification: You can have a collar, your phone number, and a microchip. Have all your dog’s information updated, along with updated contact details. You can even have emergency contact information.
  • Pack Their Favorite Blanket or One of Your T-Shirts: It can be stressful for them too to be in a new environment but having a blanket or something similar that has the household scent, will make the dog feel safer.
  • Remember Their Favorite Snacks and Food: Getting the dog something to keep him busy when he is away it’s also a method to make the stay easier.
  • Pack Their Chewable Toys: This is another way to keep them busy. They can bite, chew, throw, whatever they like most to do with their toys. Remember to pack it so they can enjoy it and focus on that rather than your absence.
  • Pack Any Medicine: If your dog takes any supplements or medicine, they must have it together with the medication plan.
  • Whatever Makes Your Dog Happy: Pack any item that makes your dog happy and it’s possible to take it with them. You know your dog better than anyone, so you know what makes them feel good. So, if it’s possible, pack it for the stay.

    Hello,
    We have a 14-month old male chocolate lab that is starting to show signs of growling at people on occasion and it is worrying us. I have 3-boys (typical suburban family in Carlsbad). Would I be able to do a week long board and training session with you?
    Please contact me: 858 449 5631
