    How to choose a kennel for your dog?

    Articlegeneral dog adviceThursday 19 May 2011
    It seems that leaving a dog in a kennel while you are going away on holidays results more stressful for the dog owners than for the pets. Feeling guilty and worrying about leaving your pooches with strangers should be an extra motivation for you to choose a kennel carefully.

    The best way to find the boarding kennel for your dog is by asking other pet owners, your friends, veterinarian or the staff at your pet store. They can be able to recommend you something for sure. Ask how long the person has boarded his dog at the kennel, how many did he stayed there, has any special requirements been met, try to get a contact person so you can meet him/her and sort out doubts you might have.

    There are also many websites dedicated to browse kennels, you can find some interesting offers here. To spare time you can enter forums and directly check offer of kennels as many of them have their own websites. There is always the ‘Contact Us’ section so you can send an e-mail or call the kennel staff.

    Once you find your local boarding kennel, we recommend that you visit it before leaving your pet there. It’s just to make sure it is clean and adequately sized. You should also check out the exercise and sleeping areas. Don't hesitate to ask questions to the staff: how many dogs there are, what they are doing during the day, etc. A kennel should have a day plan to keep your dog busy while you are gone.
