Mountain Vista Boarding Kennel
Now that we have used the kennel several times, I feel it is safe to write a review. First, the kennel came recommended to us by our local Vet, which I thought was a plus. We have boarded our Black Lab about 4 times now. Each time, on pick up and drop off, the Kennel has been clean and odors were at a bare minimum. I was impressed, as I expected at least SOME strong odor. The Owner lives on site, and the dogs there always looked well cared for. Yes, our dog ripped up her blanket but one must realize that a dog will suffer separation anxiety, and exhibit behavior it would not normally do at home. The price is extremely reasonable, and it is a comfort that my dog is well cared for when I have to travel and I cant bring her with me.
Tips & Advices
Pets that do not get along with other animals may incur an additional fee. Some facilities have special solitary sleeping and play animals for these types of pets.
A checklist for what to bring to a pet kennel includes:
  • Vaccination records
  • A favorite toy or blanket
  • Food and feeding instructions (if the pet has dietary restrictions or is a picky eater)
  • Medication (if necessary, in its original bottle and with written instructions)
Some pet kennels have veterinarians as part of their daily staff, while others only have vets part time or on call.
Most kennels can provide basic care such as administering medications, but owners of pets with serious medical issues should choose a facility with a veterinarian on call.
Bordetella, commonly known as kennel cough, is highly contagious, and most dogs catch it at least once in their lifetimes. As such, all dogs should be vaccinated at least 7 days before boarding.
