Dog and Cat Boarding
At Longtail Pet Motel each pet is regarded as an individual and cared for accordingly.
After all, your pet is used to being given individual care and attention at your place, so it makes sense to choose a pet motel which provides individual facilities for each guest.
Unlike most other boarding kennels, at Longtail Pet Motel your pet will be individually housed in its own secure enclosure, allowing it to relax without the constant stressful presence of other animals adding to the anxiety of finding itself in an alien environment.
Reducing stress levels is extremely important to the health and well-being of your pet. Longtail's emphasis on individual care is designed to create a home away from home for each animal.
Clients are welcome to bring along baskets and bedding normally used by their pets but are requested to clearly name tag these items. Preferably do not bring along bean bag style bedding.
Daily exercise periods also serve as health checks and comfort sessions for each pet on a one to one basis. Your pet will be spoken to by name while being patted, cuddled and reassured that you will be returning soon.
Dogs are let loose individually to exercise twice daily in spacious, secure, grassed or all weather surface enclosures; allowing them to run around and toilet naturally without being intimidated by other dogs. You can request your pet to be matched up with a paw mate if you wish them to have more interactive fun.
During each exercise period your pets living quarters are hygienically cleaned and any soiled bedding removed for washing.
Longtail Pet Motel feed fresh meat and Royal Canin biscuits to their guests
Each pet is served individually to ensure they receive their full ration.
Fresh meat has numerous advantages over processed foods which are often rejected by animals unaccustomed to the many varieties on the market. The high protein content of fresh meat balances the effects of stress experienced by some animals when confined to strange surroundings. Stress results in the animals metabolism requiring increased protein. If their need is not supplied a protein deficiency will occur leading to subsequent health problems.
Arrival & Departure Procedure
On arrival at Longtail Pet Motel your pets health, diet and any behavioural problems are discussed and entered on our files.
You are then welcome to escort your pet to its individual living quarters. In many cases this helps allay fears held by animals as well as owners.
Please remember to bring your pets current vaccination card with you.
On returning for your pet, please have payment ready before our staff collect your pet. This will ensure you are able to give your full attention to your pet who will be excited to see you and may take some controlling around other pets, people and vehicles.
