Book pet’s holiday first
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.
Ran’Dee Pet Motel is on 251 Bracken Ridge Road, Bracken Ridge. Phone
