2. Visit Some Kennels
Make sure the space is well ventilated and temperature controlled, and assess the size, comfort and quality of kennels and sleeping areas (they should be clean and in good repair). Ask how often the staff walk and feed dogs; inquire about whether there are systems in place to keep territorial animals apart. If your pet has special needs – an anti-social dog; a cat with health concerns – make sure the facility can accommodate them, and inquire whether veterinary care is available on-site.
