If you are away from your home for any extended period of time you must make arrangements for the care of your dog. Relying on your neighbours to feed and care for your dog is often not a good solution. It is recommended that you place your dog in a boarding kennel where you are confident the dog will be securely kept and properly cared for.
In choosing a boarding kennel make sure you visit the establishment first and check that the following criteria are met:
Staffing: enough to ensure personalised attention for your dog,
Security: adequate precautions against the possibility of escape;
Hygiene: evidence of cleanliness and no smell;
Accommodation: dry, clean and roomy;
Exercise: an area for daily exercise and play.
A good boarding kennel will only accept dogs, which have been properly vaccinated and will require proof of vaccination.
