Not going to lie, I was skeptical at first. I am that crazy dog mommy... I have a Maltese, Alice Ana, who had just turned 5 years old. It was my college spring break and we were going on vacation to Florida, which meant leaving the dogs for a few days. My fiancé came with and his dog, Prima (a chihuahua/min pin) is fairly aggressive with new people- she even nipped at a random toddler and made our last pet sitter's hand bleed! However, she didn't nip once at Desiree (pardon me if I mispelled her name) and both dogs loved her! Neither of them lost or gained weight, and the facility followed all of the instructions---- PLUS washed the blankets/clothing and sprayed down the pillow. Where else are you going to get that without an extra charge?! Absolute sweethearts work here! Alice even squeaked her favorite bone while she was there, so she must have had an unstressed stay! I called up every other day and Desiree always let me know what was going on... I would recommend!!
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.
