Boarding Your Pet Guide
How to find the best kennel
With pet boarding, as with finding a good Veterinarian or Pet Groomer, it is good to
ask friends and family for recommendations for a good boarding kennel. It is a good idea to visit prospective kennels and find one
you like before you need one and are rushed into picking the first one you see.
When you visit some good questions to ask are:
>Are you a member of the ABKA? The American Boarding Kennels Association.
>What kind of security do you have?
>Who are the people that are actually going to be handling your pet.
>What are the sanitation practices of the kennel on a daily basis?
>Do you have a Veterinarian on call for emergencies?
>How large is the exercise area and how often do the pets get to exercise?
To prepare for boarding make sure your cat or dog is current on all pet vaccines. Quality kennels should ask to see a copy of your vaccination record. If they don't that is a bad sign. Kennels are notorious for spreading diseases like kennel cough.
