Flying can be a stressful experience. There are many moving pieces when it comes to airline travel such as getting to the airport early enough to get checked in then getting through security as well as delays and cancellations over which you have no control. However, flying with pets can add even more stress to the situation, especially in the event of a long delay or cancellation of your flight. There is nothing more upsetting to a pet owner than knowing that their beloved furry friend is confined to their kennel in the cargo area due to a long layover or flight cancellation. Thankfully, here at Hillrose Pet Resort, we offer traveling pet owners the wonderful service and convenience of Pet boarding for long layovers and other delays in travel plans.
Pet Layover Boarding near SeaTac Airport
We are conveniently located near Sea-Tac airport which allows us to easily come to the airport, pick up your pet and transport him or her back to our kennel. We coordinate everything for you, giving you one less thing to worry about. We will take care of the entire check-in process with airlines and ensure that the animal has the least amount of time possible in the cargo area, at the airport and on the plane.
If you know you will be having a long layover, you can simply fill out our layover request form and we will take care of the rest. If you happen to be experiencing an unexpected delay, our mobile friendly form allows you to take care of the details on the fly. All of the information that we would need from you is on the form; you don’t have to worry about forgetting any important details because we’ve covered them all for you on the form. Once we receive your form in our system, we are able to quickly make the transfer from SeaTac to our kennel so that your pet will have a comfortable place to stay, eat and play while here in Seattle. We will come and pick up your pet and then make sure that they are checked in within plenty of time for the flight from Seattle.
If your pet will be staying with us for less than one day, we will accept the health certificate that the airline requires for travel. However, if your pet will be staying longer, then we do require that they be current on all their vaccines.
During Your Pet's Boarding Layover
Once your pet arrives at Hillrose Pet Resort, they will be placed in one of our private kennels. Our private kennels provide a spacious and comfortable place for your pet that connects to an outside run where he or she can get some much needed exercise. Once it is time to return your pet (s) to the airport, we will crate them and take them back to SeaTac for check-in and boarding in the cargo area.
This service is quickly becoming one of our most popular. Here’s what one recent client had to say:
“After living several years overseas, we recently moved back to the states. During our move, we had a long layover in Seattle and were very concerned about our pets, who were in the cargo area during our flight. We were so thankful to learn of the Hillrose Pet Resort and their convenient layover boarding service, so we quickly made arrangements for our pets to be picked up and boarded during our layover. We were amazed at how convenient it was and how quickly they were able to get to the airport and pick up our pets. They literally took care of everything and we were so relieved to know that our pets were happy to have some time out of their crates. They brought them back to the airport for the departing flight and we were very glad to see them when we reached our new home.” - A satisfied customer
