How to Choose an Appropriate Dog Kennel for Your Dog

At last your long felt need for a vacation is taking shape and you are about to leave.


Here comes the great dilemma about your dog and you may start wondering where to leave the pet. You just cannot take the dog with you along for obvious reasons and you also cannot just leave the dog, as it cannot fend all by itself.

Only for such occasions, the dog kennel can come to your rescue and we will see few tips on how to select a proper dog kennel for your pet dog.

Pay a Visit to the Kennel

Any good and reputable dog kennel will allow you to go round completely and evaluate the facilities offered. Large common areas are normally found in best-maintained kennels for enabling the dog to run around.

Good dog kennels will also have separate areas for feeding and for relieving the urges and it is a must that the common area and other general areas of the dog kennel are kept clean and in hygienic condition.

Meet and Talk to the Caretakers

It is every pet owner’s ambition or expectation to leave their beloved pets in the hands of an experienced and considerate caretaker when they go out on vacation.

So in your choosing a good dog kennel for your pet, ensure that the caretakers are really professionals and are considerate who can extend a fond care to your dog in your absence.

Ensure that they are in the business for quite a long period and seek and get answers about how they engage the dog in spare time and how much time they allot for each dog?

You can also ensure that your dog receives sufficient interaction during its stay in the dog kennel and you can even get to know the need of any vaccines for your dog. All these questions will only please the caretakers and they will be more willing to answer to all your queries.

The Importance of Veterinary Care

In your endeavour to choose a good dog kennel, never miss the aspect of availability of proper veterinary care in the kennel.

Many kennels have exclusive veterinary care facilities to take care of any regular and emergency situations or you may even accept a kennel, which has access to 24-hours VCA hospital facilities near by. Ensure about the cost involved and the quality of such facilities.

Ascertain whether it is necessary for you to bring your dog for an “interview” before the actual enrolling of your pet into the dog kennel.

This is because certain dogs are very difficult to manage and hence it is better you explain the details to the people in the dog kennel by actually taking your dog to the kennel.

The kennel people take this opportunity to study the dog and arrive at the appropriate methodologies to be applied once the dog is in kennel.

A little more interest and with little more of your time spent, you can be sure of getting or choosing the best dog kennel for your pet.
