What should one look for, before putting their dong in kennel?
 
It is important that pet owners personally visit the kennel before they decide to keep their dog in one. There are many irresponsible kennel owners and you don’t want your dog to go through a traumatic experience while you’re out on holiday or perhaps on a business trip.

In any ways, pet owners must understand that the experience of being away from family is indeed quite stressful experience for dogs. To tackle this many kennel owners engage the dogs in a range of activities to keep the dogs occupied and away from depression. It is also advised that you leave your pets toys or his bed with him to comfort him with familiar things around, while he is at totally new place. 

Consider following points while judging the kennels.

  • Kennel should be disinfected before new dog comes in

  • The kennel should be well maintained (Old rusted kennels are not good)
  • The Kennel should be specious in width and length for your dog to move freely
  • The height should be more then your dog standing on two legs
  • There should be a provision for constant air circulation, i. e. separate sealing fan in each kennel
