You have been working hard all year long, looking forward longingly to your annual holiday leave and daydreaming of sundrenched days by the seaside. You booked your room at the resort months ago and have paid a substantial deposit up front to make sure that it is kept for you. But were you thinking about that when you were captivated by that cute pup with the big brown eyes pleading with you to take him home? He has become a part of your life and you want to take him, but the resort has a ‘no pets&rsquo rule and he cannot go with you. What’s the solution for you both?

Your best friend works with you but she has cats that hate dogs, and lives half an hours drive from your home, making it a big ask to have her come in to feed him and check he is okay. You have no one else you would feel comfortable taking him while you are away, and you are not sure of the quality of the care given by people who advertise for people and pets in your situation. Then suddenly the solution is quite clear, and you start checking out dog kennels to board him with while you are away.

Registered dog breeders often have kennels for as well, and trained staff working in them ensuring your pet is in the best of care. They love animals and this is why they have chosen this vocation in life, and their love extends beyond their own animals to all who come into their care. For your own peace of mind take a drive and check some out. Clean, comfortable and well aired accommodation is waiting for your pup, and you will be offered grooming services as well. Exercise and play time are also things they will enjoy and more so because they have other doggy companions.

If your pet starts to feel unwell or not wish to eat, qualified staff will notice it very quickly and take steps to investigate the cause. Of course you must ensure your pet has it’s vaccinations up to date, or he will be refused entry until this has been done. This is a protection for all the doggy residents there as well as your own. Take your pup with you when you visit them and check out his reaction and you will soon happily realize he likes them. Make your choice and get him booked in early enough to ensure that you will both have a stress free start to your holidays.
