Choosing a Small Pet Kennel

Choosing where you are going to leave your beloved pet is an important decision. There are many places you can find lists of kennels for your small pet, but finding the best one will take a bit of work.

There are two types of kennels; the basic care kennel and the upscale frilly kennel. You need to decide if basic care is all your pet needs or if you want to invest in the extras such as, daily walks, baths before return, pick up and delivery, toys and special bedding. All of the extras will cost more so it is important to check costs. Once you have decided on your type it is time to choose a kennel.

First, start by asking around for a recommendation. Friends and family are a good place to start. Usually the people you know and trust will give you the best leads on services for your pet. If this doesn’t work, ask your veterinarian for a recommendation.

Second, you can go to the American Boarding Kennels Association and search their website for member kennels. Membership requires that kennels agree to a code of ethics in the operation of their kennel. This is a good place to start your search, but not a definite. Remember, to be a member you agree to a code and pay a fee. There is nothing that guarantees that a kennel is all you want it to be without you checking it out for yourself.
