What To Look For In A Dog Boarding Facility

Dog Boarding  

A boarding facility is a pragmatic option if you need someone to watch and care for your dogs. Plus, owners can rest easy knowing that typically reputable boarders are connected with a local animal clinic or veterinarian to ensure quality care in an emergency. In West Hollywood, CA, pet owners can rely on Hollywood Cat and Dog Hospital for quality care and compassion.

Pet Care Services 

Boarding is a pet care service that merits the expertise of a professional. After all, you do not want to worry or have concerns regarding your pet’s care when you are away, or the pet is being boarded. As such, it pays to do your homework regarding the agency or individuals providing pet care services for you. 

Credentials and Vaccination Requirement

Check the licensure and credentials of the boarding kennel you are considering. Inquire about vaccination requirements before showing up at the kennel. Typically, boarding kennels require documentation of core vaccinations, which your veterinary provider may electronically send.

Friendly Staff with Social Animals  

Visit the boarding facility to evaluate how clean it is. Book or reserve boarding space with a visit to see it firsthand. Meet the individuals that care for your dog. Watch how they mingle and engage with the dogs at the kennel. At the same time, find out about exposure to other pets and how this is supervised and managed. 

Emergency Care and Reviews

Ask about emergencies, how health crises are handled at the facility, and whether pets will be monitored 24 hours a day. Check the reviews and read their website for concerns. You may also ask those around you for the best boarding facility they know of.

  • "Wow! Thanks to all the staff at Anderson Vet Clinic. I feel like you all truly love what you do! My kitty, Lola and I always have such a pleasant experience when we come in. Fortunately, it’s usually just for a check-up, but I would not leave Lola in anyone else’s hands but yours. Thank you for your caring commitment!"

    John Doe / San Diego, CA
  • "Fabio wasn’t eating the food I was giving him and I didn’t feel he was getting the nutrition he needed. Thanks to Dr. Anderson, he evaluated Fabio and his current diet to make some recommendations and now Fabio has gone from barely eating to finishing his meals and he looks healthier than ever. You clearly are an expert in your field...thanks so much!"
