The benefits of including cat and dog play structures in your boarding facility can set your business apart from the rest while enriching the lives of the companion animals in your care. The cost of installing a complicated play structure causes some small business owners to forgo the idea altogether, but don’t let it deter you. It doesn’t have to be complicated and any money you spend on it is an investment that can help grow your business. Creating multiple levels, viewing platforms and varied surfaces will help engage your guests and make them more comfortable. Dogs love to climb up on something high and look down over their domains while cats need larger platforms in order to fully stretch and get comfy. Play structures are a great way to provide exercise, stimulation and socialization and keep your guests coming back time and time again.
