It can be confusing for some people when a boarding facility instructs them to leave their dog’s favorite toy at home. A toy may help your pet feel safer, more secure and more at home while enjoying their stay, but may also be the harmful during the boarding experience.
Your pet may become possessive, or “resource guard,” which may be an issue for staff while caring for your pet. This type of behavior can lead to aggression and roughness between your pet and someone else’s. Toys are also prone to get damaged or lost when sent to a boarding facility with your pet. A damaged fabric toys with a squeaker could also be a choking hazard for your pet.
For the safety of your pet and the staff, it is best to let the trained staff determine which toys are the safest for the boarding environment.
