Horse Shoe Kennels
We have been using a sitter for years and based on a friend's recommendation, decided to try out Horse Shoe Kennels. We just popped in to check the place out (with no warning) and found the place to be super tidy and clean. We ended up making a reservation and though we were a little nervous about the whole "kennel" thing they really made us feel comfortable leaving our dogs there, assuring us they would be well cared for. When we picked them up they were elated to see us and had obviously been well cared for... I can not say how pleased I was with this business!
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.
