Luxury Dog Boarding

It’s vacation time for you and the family, but that leaves the question of what do you do with your pooch? No matter where you go on vacation, it can be hard to have a good time if you are worrying about the care and happiness of your furry friend. When you leave town, you can choose to send your pet on a vacation of their own - and there is no better place to send them than a luxury pet hotel!  We understand that choosing the right dog boarding facility for you and your pooch can be a tough decision. There are a few things that you should consider when making an informed decision on which Seattle dog boarding facility is best for you.

Choosing the Right Luxury Pet Hotel

Deciding what pet hotel to use can be a difficult decision.  One place to start is to find out how many years the facility has been providing dog boarding in Seattle? You don’t want to send your pet just anywhere, so it’s important to do your homework. Do the overnight boarding guests get any outdoor time?  Are there overnight staff on the premises throughout the night?  Will the facility administer medication if needed?  Will they allow you to bring your own bedding and toys to help your pooch feel at home with familiar items and smells?  What types of enclosures are used? What types of cleaning protocols are in place for the overnight boarding enclosures, and what types of cleaning equipment do they use? It is very important to find a facility that feels like a home away from home for your four-legged family member, and that is what we strive to do at The Barking Lounge!

What Does a Typical Overnight Luxury Pet Hotel Experience Look Like?

You might be wondering what a typical overnight boarding stay looks like. Well, we’d be happy to tell you about a day in the life of a dog at The Barking Lounge®!  It all begins in the morning when your pooch wakes up from a restful night in their private suite. After a bit of stretching, sniffing and a few yawns, it’s time to head to the great outdoors for a bit of early morning supervised time. Food is prepared just like at home to avoid digestive issues, and breakfast is served back in the private suite. After a leisurely breakfast, there is relaxation time to allow for digesting, and then a full day of playcare begins!  The full day of playcare includes supervised socialization, romping, barking, playing, and let’s not forget the butt rubs.  If you happen to be missing your pooch, you can even watch them socializing with new friends on our live webcams!

By the end of the day, your pooch is pretty tuckered out from all of the group play, but not too tired to enjoy a delicious dinner in their private suite, followed by a bit of relaxation and evening supervised outdoor time for one last stretch and sniff before bedtime. Now it’s time for lights out and your pooch will doze off to sleep listening to relaxing music after a full and exhausting day of fun. Now that’s what we call a vacation
