It was so simple to find a pet sitter for our puppy Lola. I felt much better that she was in a loving home rather than boarded in a kennel. Overall, a great experience! Jenna R, Colorado
What to Look for In a Kennel
There are good ones, great ones and terrible ones. If you choose to place your pet in a kennel, go there yourself and take a tour.
Some things to keep in mind when visiting a kennel:
- How does it smell?
- How loud is the environment?
- Are cages facing each other? This can be very stressful.
- What type of staff interaction is there?
- Do the animals get played with, petted and held?
- What is done to help reduce anxiety and fear?
- Is there a veterinarian on-call for emergencies?
- How is the facility monitored at night?
