Choosing a Boarder

When choosing a boarding facility or kennel, you are choosing someone to replace you in your pet's life, during your absence. Extreme care and diligence should be exercised in making this important decision. Some of the things to consider are:

Are ALL pets boarded, at the facility, required to be vaccinated against diseases including Kennel Cough (Bordetella Vaccine)? A boarding facility with this requirement helps to protect your pet, as well as others that they may have contact with.

Does each dog has its own adequately sized indoor-outdoor run or an adequate indoor area, with regularly scheduled exercise period?

Are the outdoor runs or exercise areas protected from the sun, wind, rain, and snow?

Are resting boards and bedding provided to allow dogs to rest off of the concrete floor?

Are cats housed separate and away from dogs?

Is there space for cats to move around comfortably?

Is there enough space between te litterbox and food bowls?

How often are pets fed?

Can the owner bring a pet's special food?

What Veterinary services are available?

Are other services available such as grooming, training, and bathing?

How are rates calculated?

It is also recommended that you take you pet for a visit with personnel who will be caring for it. It is imperative that you and your pet be comfortable with the boarding personnel. To prevent you from having to make a last minute decision, ensure that you start your search early, long before you actually need the services.
