Choosing a boarding kennel

There are two main options for your dogs if you go away on holiday and cannot take them with you: pet-sitters and boarding kennels. Pet sitters are individuals who come to your home and stay there when you are away, which may be less traumatic for most dogs as they look after your dog in his or her normal environment. The majority of dog owners, however, have to rely on boarding kennels. Pet sitters are more expensive, and some people may have concerns about allowing relative strangers in their home. Taking time and care to choose the best boarding kennel for your dog will help to minimise stress for both you and your dog, and ensure that they return home fit, healthy and happy.
