How to choose the right boarding kennel

Finding a place for the dog to stay while you’re away can be tricky. A good boarding kennel is equipped to provide quality care, so do your research.

Get a referral from other pet owners, your veterinarian or a local shelter.

Visit the facility and see all the areas where your pet may spend time, noting the cleanliness, lighting and temperature. Kennels should be spacious and provide bedding to elevate dogs from a concrete floor.
