CHOOSING A KENNEL OR CATTERY
There will inevitably be occasions where you will have to go away and not take your pet with you. This may be for planned events such as holidays etc, but may also occur "at the drop of a hat" should you have to leave home without your pet(s) for any reason. Therefore, it is always useful to have a suitable kennel or cattery on standby so you will not be faced with a last minute crisis.
Please be aware that if your dog is going into Kennels, he/she will require the Kennel Cough vaccine. This is not routinely done as part of the annual “booster” so you will need to check if your dog is protected. The vaccine must be given at least 72hrs (3days) before the dog goes into kennels.
Boarding services can be found in many ways. Yellow pages, pet magazines, the veterinary surgery, pet-shops and local councils all provide a list of kennels and catteries which are in the area.
A recommendation from a friend is always a useful and good place to start - however what is suitable for one family may be different from those needs of another. The best way to choose a kennel or cattery is to check it out for yourself. Use the checklist below and if the establishment meets the following criteria then your pet is likely to be well looked after.
If you find a good kennel or cattery, remember to book well in advance. Good establishments fill up fast in peak season!
