Facts You Should Know On Pet Boarding:
  • A minimum of 3 trips required by pet owner.  First to assess the place, 2nd to drop off pet to Kennels / catteries.  Final trip to collect the pet.
  • When a pet owner goes on holiday, why should the pet go to prison?  A lot of effort is  taken to improve conditions but pets are still “held” for hours in the same area,  over 10 hours a day at times, in a confined space.
  • Although human presence is available 24 hours, the quality of human contact one to one cannot be compared with Pet Sitting in their own home.
  • No matter how clean the environment is, the dog or cat can still smell the scent of other pets, which can make them feel nervous through the whole period.
  • Pets are animals with territorial instincts.  When one pet starts making noise, the others will also join in.  Not a very peaceful experience for any pet.
  • Pets in a kennel will be in close proximity to other pets, making them susceptible to   health problems like Kennel flu.  Your pet may not be sociable with other dogs or  even be bullied, causing unnecessary distress.
  • All pets get stressed when missing their owners.  However, the stress levels of pets kept in kennels and catteries is much higher than the pets cared for at their own home.
  • The word kennel also formerly meant a drain channel for street waste water.
