Selecting a Boarding Kennel

Sometimes a pet cannot travel with you. You may be traveling to a country requiring a long quarantine, or visiting friends or relatives that refuse to also host Rover and Fluffy. An out of town business emergency or hospitalization will also often require boarding a pet.

Choosing a Kennel

Your veterinarian, groomer, dog trainer, or pet owning friend can often recommend a boarding facility. A reputable facility should allow you to visit. Check the facility for cleanliness. Do the animals in their care seem relaxed and happy? Ask about feeding, and if the staff is willing to administer medications or feed special diets if necessary. A good facility should provide the animals with toys, bedding, and outdoor play time. All kennels, exercise areas, and cages should be in good repair and secure. Ask the facility if anyone checks the animals in the evening. Find out how an emergency will be handled.

 


Preparing your pet

Most young pets will adapt easily and quickly to being boarded. If your pet is older and never been boarded or a little unsure of himself, arrange for the pet to stay for one night before you must leave him for longer. This visit reassures your pet that you have not abandoned him. Take your pets favorite toy or blanket. This will reassure your pet and remind him of home. Make sure your pets vaccinations are up to date. A reputable kennel will require a boarding pass from a veterinarian.
