Tips On Finding A Quality Boarding Kennel

When you are traveling or making long vacation plans, you need to make proper plans for the wellbeing of your pets. You may not be able to take them everywhere you go even if you wish to. You certainly cannot leave them alone at home. So, you must choose a proper and secure dog boarding kennel for him to stay during that time period. They must have a comfortable environment and friendly staff around so that it feels like home.

There are a number of service providers who cater to such needs for you and your pet. If you do your homework well and are able to find a reputable boarding facility for your dog or cat, your pet can enjoy all the supreme facilities which they offer. For instance, your pet will get the best diets, Boarding your dogproperly conditioned air, clean and spacious indoor runs and large play areas outdoor and above all extremely attentive and competent staff to take care of them.

So, how will you find a dog boarding kennel which has all such facilities for your pet? Below are some pointers which you can take care of while choosing an animal care center for your dog:

1. If you know other reliable dog owners, ask them if they have used any local boarding facility. Discuss with them about the services they received from the boarding kennels of their choice. Find out if they felt their dog was taken care of appropriately in their absence. Referrals or recommendations from such acquaintances or friends are always the best piece of information you can gather.

2. Before finalizing one service provider, make sure you talk to all the concerned staff. This will help you in understanding their views and opinions about their task, consequently helping you comprehend how well they will understand the needs of your pet and cater to it.

3. Make sure your pet will like to stay a dog kennel. Maybe try to have him stay overnight and try it out before you go away for a long period of time.  Some dogs do not do well in them as they scare them with all the barking going on.  But some dogs and cats do well.

There is one in Indian Trail that I would recommend called  Dog’s Day Out  I have gone over there and toured the facility.  It was clean and the staff was very friendly!! Another one that I highly recommend is Pet Pack Resort

Your other alternative is hire a professional pet sitter to come to your home and care for your pets in the comfort of their home.  This option I think is the best one for all pets.  But that is because I own Love and Kisses Pet Sitting here in Indian Trail.  We service all of Union County since 2006.  We make sure your pets get out for their potty breaks, make sure they are eating and we even take them on nice long walks.  Click below if you would like more information on this service.  We are bonded and insured for your protection.

    I liked your tip to be sure that you talked to all the staff members who would be involved in taking care of your dog. I feel like proper communication would be the key to being certain that your animal would be well taken care of. It would also help to check out the cleanliness of the facility to see if it is fit for your pet.

    I loved what you said about visiting with other dog owners in your area, as they have likely used a boarding service and could recommend you it. I’m going on a trip soon and need to find a place for my sweet puppy to stay, so that it can the proper care it needs. I’ll have to go to the dog park and ask the people down there who they trust, as they are dog fanatics and know what is best for our very important puppies.

      Great idea Rachel. If you are in the Indian Trail NC area Love and Kisses Pet Sitting also does dog boarding . a few of my pet sitters will board dogs in their homes. The clients love that their pets are staying in a home environment. Let me know if you need any information re this.

    I do like that you suggest letting your dog try out the kennel first. After all, they’re more likely to remain calm if they’ve spent a night or two at the kennel before. That way you’re not just dumping them there by surprise for a week.

    I loved the suggestion you made about talking to other dog owners for kennel recommendations first. After all, most dog owners know how to properly care for and love their dog enough to want them to stay in a quality boarding facility. Because of that, you can usually rely on them to give you a recommendation that you know you can trust.
