The Dog Den
I got my dog as an adult from a breeder and have always had dog sitters come to my home. I heard about The Dog Den and decided to try it out while on vacation to Nashville. Ken was simply amazing and all paperwork for Lucie's stay was completed electronically. The drop off process went smoothly and I knew she was in good hands. Later that day I was pleasantly surprised to get a picture of my sweet girl hanging out with some new friends. Ken provided periodic updates and was super flexible on the pick up time once I returned to town. He is extremely ethical, honest, and friendly. He goes above and beyond what is expected of him. I have a few more trips planned this summer and Ken will be the first one I call! Lucie might even attend daycare in the fall if there are days I know I will need to work later. The Dog Den is simply the best!!!
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.
