So many people have asked for grooming in my kennel, GOOD NEWS!!
My daugher and I both graduated from the DIAMOND CUT GROOMING SCHOOL, in Medina, Ohio.
So we are now grooming.
What to Expect When Your pet Returns Home.
Your pet will undoubtedly be happy to see you. Following a few guidelines will help ease the transition back to home life.
*Over-excitement may cause your pet to pant a lot & act thirsty. He had plenty of water available while boarding and is not really thirsty. Give him a few ice cubes to tide him over till he settles down.
*Food: Same as for water. Excessive drinking and eating may lead to digestive upset and bloat. Do not feed your pet for at least 3 hours after getting home, then limit food and water until he has settled into home life.
*Walk your pet on arrival at home or put him in your yard. Excitement may also cause a change in bowel or bladder movements outside his normal schedule.
*Give your pet some attention, play time, petting, or brushing to help him get beyond the excitement stage.
- Kennel life can be very exciting and ACTIVE. Some dogs charge around barking at other dogs and having a wonderful time. These dogs often leave the kennel exhausted but happy and may sleep alot the first 48-72 hours after going home Most pets are very active at the kennel, so your pet may also loose some weight even though they are eating well.
*Re-establish home patterns by following dog's normal schedule. Pets are creatures of habit and love having a schedule--it makes them feel safe and secure. Understand that your pet's potty and eating, & drinking habits may be a little off.
