Hi, I’m [your name] and this is [your animal’s name (if you include him/her in the video)] from [your city and state].
August is a popular month to take a family vacation. But have you thought about what to do with your animal while you’re away?
In the event you can’t take your animal companion along for the trip, here’s a friendly reminder to hire a pet sitter or admit your animal to a boarding facility. Remember, a boarding facility should only board animals that have up-to-date health records and are in good health.
To ensure your animal is in the hands of a responsible sitter or a reputable facility, we offer the following tips:
Make sure the sitter has credentials and references and be sure to verify them;
Find out if the sitter is a member of a national pet-sitters association;
Meet a potential sitter in person to see how he or she interacts with your animals;
Consider leaving a signed release for veterinary care, in case your animal needs treatment while you’re away;
Ask if the boarding facility has separate boarding rooms for all animals;
If your animal has special medical needs, choose a facility accordingly, and,
Board your animal at the selected facility for a trial run prior to an extended stay.
Your summer vacation will be worry-free, knowing your animal is safely being cared for. Happy Travels!
