What Should I Expect from a Good Boarding Kennels?

· They should look and smell clean
· Bedding should be clean and comfortable
· They should be dry and draught-free with a source of heating
· All dogs should have access to an outside exercise area during daylight hours
· The resident dogs should look cheerful and interested, with no sense that they feel threatened either by the situation or other dogs
· Water should be available always
· Whilst there will probably be an explosion of barking when you arrive, this should subside fairly soon
· Vaccinations should be insisted on; whatever the current debate about vaccination this is the only way that you can be sure that your dog is protected in a strange environment
· Food and feeding regimes should reflect what the dog is accustomed to at home
· Owners should be encouraged to bring toys for their dogs; gundogs, especially, like to have something to carry around
· Details of the owner, the dog's health and his vet should be taken, together with a contact number for the boarding period
· The Boarding Kennel should be happy to administer any medication, but make sure you bring sufficient supplies, measures and instructions.
· Hours of opening, prices and how the charges are applied should be quite clear. There is no excuse for finding that your boarding fee has been boosted by a range of extras. 
· It is reasonable to expect that your dogs are insured for the duration of their stay, but check on benefits and limitations and whether you are expected to pay extra for this.

Check how well the Boarding Kennels staff know their boarders and about dogs in general; ask some leading questions about dogs you can see - name, age, what is the breed like in general so you can get a picture of their competence and knowledge.

When Should I Start Boarding Him?

Try and start boarding when the dog is young, say six months or so. This will make kennels a perfectly natural experience for him, just another new thing in his life. Leave it until he is five or six years and it will be much more difficult, and don't think about boarding an elderly dog for the first time. He won't understand and will be utterly desolate.
