 Indoor Kenneling Or Outdoor Dog Daycare: What is Best For Your Pet

Before you take on the responsibility of owning a cat or dog, you need to take the time to consider the living arrangements for your pet. Many people adopt pets with the idea that they will be raising an outdoor animal.

Do you know the number people in your neighborhood keep their dogs or cat’s outdoors at all times? The fact of the matter is, outside is not a safe place for a cat or a dog. When you adopt a pet, you need to make sure that you are ready to allow your pet into your home.

Pets Love Being Outside

It is true that cats and dogs both will love being outside, it is their natural environment. Cats delight in chasing birds, climbing trees, and hiding in shrubs. Dogs adore barking at the neighbors, chasing squirrels, and digging.

However, there are many dangers to keeping your pet outside at all times. Dogs tend to get more outside time in cats. Owners take their dogs out for walks, and in some cases allow their dogs, unsupervised access to the backyard from time to time. Cats are usually either indoor pets or outdoor pets. 

We started SLC Dog Sitter because we wanted to make certain that every pet was treated like one of the family. 

Do yourself a favor and do not take your dog to a boarding facility that cages them up like rats... a good place to never take your pet would be to a clinic that doubles as a boarding facility

Here at SLCDog Sitting we pride ourselves on making sure that every animal is never kenneled or caged. 

Ask Amy when you call her why she started this service. It will shock you and amaze you at the horrible things that are done to dogs that are placed in kennels. 

It is more common nowadays, for owners to keep their cats indoors as they begin to realize the dangers of allowing their cat to live outdoors at all time. It is highly recommended that you keep your cats and dogs inside. For cats, you can help them explore their natural instincts inside by giving them plenty of places to run and play inside your home.  Buy your cat a good scratching post with a high perch and install a window seat so they can gaze at the birds outdoors.


Are there Dangers of
Outside Dog Boarding?

There can be dangers involved with dog daycare's in Salt Lake City, Utah. One of the most dangerous things is if the dog gets loose. This in fact, is the number one danger to your pets when they go outside is other animals.

You never know when your dog or cat will encounter a stray or strange cat or dog from down the street. You know that your pet is properly vaccinated, but you do not know that health condition of other animals outside. In order to have us watch your pet here at SLC Dog Sitter you will need to have updated vaccinations for your dog. 

In addition, if your dog or cat gets into a fight with another animal.  Your pet can be seriously injured or harmed.  Unless you supervise your pet at all times when they are outside, you never know when your cat or dog will encounter a strange animal.


Other dangers of allowing your pet to live outside are cars and other people. A cat darting across the street late at night is a recipe for disaster. What if your dog gets loose from your yard and encounters a child?  How will your dog react? You hope that your dog will be good and stay friendly. However, what happens if the child begins to taunt or tease your dog or poke a stick at him? If your dog bites or scratches another person, chances are, you will be responsible for your pet's actions. Many pet owners have found themselves in a serious situation when their dog or cat has acted aggressively when outdoors.


When your cat or dog stays indoors, you can also help control fleas, ticks, and the exposure to heart worms. This is not to say that you should not treat an indoor pet for these problems.

All dogs, whether the event indoors or outdoors, should be on a monthly heart-worm preventative. Both cats and dogs should also be treated with monthly preventative.

It is important to remember though, if your cat or dog lives outdoors, you will have many more problems when it comes to fleas and ticks.

Here at SLC Dog Daycare by Amy we have a weekly company come by and make certain that there are no flee's or ticks and that the grounds are safe for your puppy or dog to be boarded. 

We take great pride in maintaining the highest level of cleanliness possible here at SLC Dog Sitter, and know that you will love having your pet boarded here, over and over. 

As you can see, there are many reasons why you should keep your dog or cat indoors, but never kenneled. Pets that are indoor pets live longer and healthier lives than pets that live outside.  Our dog daycare give them the relaxation and comfort of knowing they are in a warm and inviting home.

This includes all pets, once you make them an indoor animal; you need to protect them from anything that might happen if they get outdoors, they now depend on you to provide a home for them. Your biggest concern should be, Never kennel your pet. Here at SLC Dog Daycare, we will treat your pet as one of the family.
