    DefaultKenneling the Dogs

    As I mentioned before, we are going on vacation for a week in September and are looking to board Parker and Linus. Would you knowledgeable people on here please look at this site and see what you think? My nasty, bitchy, coworker has informed that $20 a day is way too cheap for kennel price. What's your opinion.

    Thanks in advance.

    It looks fine to me and from what I saw on the web no complaints.

    Someone else from down south might have to give an opinion. But this is what I pay here in Canada, so it's not far off of your cost.

    Kennel Nightly $24.00
    Weekly $150.00
    Monthly $563.00
    The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!

    The price is extremely reasonable!
    I didn't see this on their site - do you know how many people actually staff the place?

    We kennel end our dog once, with a country vet, and had a very bad experience. Since then we've always had neighbors look after them. I would visit the kennel in person and ask for a tour, specifically to see the boarded dogs. A unannounced visit may even be better. You'll know if you're comfortable with it then.

    Btw, we're in Dayton. You from the Cincy area?

    I agree with visiting for a better overall feel.

    It looks okay; I'd give them a try. I would be sure to bring your pups' food with detailed instructions as to exactly how much they are to get and how often. Any place that supplies food (particularly Iams) as part of the boarding worries me a little.

    The kennel I work at charges $16.00/day.

    Questions I would ask are

    How many dog's can they board total?
    How many staff do they have?
    What is the staff to dog ratio?
    (ask both and see if they match up).
    Are dogs ever allowed to play together?
    What if something appears to be "wrong" with your dog.
    Who calls you?
    At what point do they call you? (do they wait a day? Do they call about very sneeze or cough)?
    Does the kennel ever double up dogs in the kennel run? (ours does but does not necessarily tell the owner that...).
    Can you bring your own bedding?
    What are their feeding times?

    Having worked at two boarding facilities, personally, I would bag up individual feedings for the dog(s). Otherwise it is too easy to give more or less than you intended. Mark each bag

    Try to do a surprise visit right at opening time. If the staff gets there right at that time, the place will look it's worst. Judge accordingly.

    Great price! The places around me like that are double the price!
