dog sleeping - Metro Dogs Daycare Dog Boarding St Paul, 3 locationsA vacation is meant to be relaxing, uplifting and a way to spend much needed time with family. This is why planning a great vacation takes some time and effort. Add figuring out what to do with your dogs while on vacation on top of that, and that creates more anxiety than is necessary. However, planning a vacation while owning a pet doesn’t have to be stressful. We’re here to reassure you that you can plan your vacation, and board your dog at one of our 3 convenient locations.

Planning winter vacations take a lot of effort. Especially when you have dogs in your home. Below are some pointers to help you plan the perfect Minnesota winter vacation through March, heck even April sad to say.

Plan Your Destination

There are different reasons people want to get away. You may want to get away from the hectic and cold life in your area. Since you are vacationing, you’d want a peaceful spot with some sightseeing options for yourself. If you love nature, you can always choose the beach or the mountains. For example, San Diego is a perfect place for beach lovers. You can easily spend four to five days visiting the different tourist attractions in that region.

If you are after a warm location for the winter months, Key West is an extremely popular vacation destination. You can spend some time in the Everglades, and then plan a road trip down to Key West.

You could choose a skiing vacation when you are planning your trip. While choosing Aspen, Beaver City or Stowe might be a good option, you may also consider going to Europe for a great experience if you’re feeling international.

Flight & Baggage

So, you’ve done some planning. The next step is booking your flights. You might get discounts in certain cases if you book early. Last minute flights cost a great deal more than average ones. Also, make sure that you carry proper clothes for your destination. If you were going to a cold destination, you would need jackets, cardigans and mufflers. On the other hand, if you are planning for a beach vacation, all you might need is your bathing suit or swimming trunks.

Family Vacation

If you have kids, you may need to think of activities that’ll keep your kids entertained when you are vacationing. As for your dogs, you can always take them with you. However, certain places don’t allow pets, and this is why dog boarding at one of our facilities would be a great option for your pet.

Think About Your Pets

The better alternative is to choose a safe, trusted, fully-staffed dog boarding facility, that’s guaranteed to help make sure your dogs are happy because there will be multiple people to take care of them.
