Book pet’s hol­i­day first

Bayside and Northern Suburbs Star - - PETS & VETS -

THE ma­jor­ity of North Bris­bane board­ing ken­nels and cat­tery are now booked out be­tween Christ­mas and New Year, but Ran’Dee Pet Mo­tel has some sound ad­vice for last minute book­ings.

Ran’Dee Pet Mo­tel owner-op­er­a­tors Marc and Dana Lang said, “Be flex­i­ble and it’s now time to book your fur ba­bies’ ac­com­mo­da­tion be­fore your own.”

Marc and Dana’s tips are: 1. Con­sider chang­ing your dates – there are still book­ings avail­able ei­ther side of Christ­mas and New Year.

2. Check the Aus­tralian As­so­ci­a­tion of Pet Board­ing and Groom­ing web­site (www.apbg.com.au) for ac­cred­ited Sun­shine Coast, Gold Coast and Som­er­set re­gion fa­cil­i­ties.

3. If you are driv­ing, check va­can­cies with ken­nels along your planned route.

4. If you are fly­ing to pet-friendly friends and fam­ily in­ter­state, it can some­times be the same price to take your dog with you.

5. Con­sider a pet sit­ter. RSPCA has en­dorsed Pet Cloud, de­tails on their web­site.

If all else fails, sim­ply stay at home and book now for next year.“Our pets are part of the fam­ily and it’s vi­tal they en­joy a safe and fes­tive Christ­mas as well,” Dana said.
