What is a kennel?

Whether you’re going on holiday or a business trip, you can’t always take your dog with you. A kennel may look like the perfect back-up solution - but did you know that there are other and better ways to get your dog looked after when you’re away?

Kennel: prices that can put off quite a few

This is the one thing to take into account: the cost. Kennel prices differ. The most standard kennels offering basic comfort are a little bit more expensive than a pet sitting service - without offering the same benefits. For luxury kennels, the prices can be over £100 per day!

Kennel: the things you should know

Not all kennels are the same. Before you choose one, it’s important to do as much research as possible. Is the kennel in line with the latest laws and regulations? What is its safety policy? It’s best to view a few facilities to get a good idea of what they’re like and how they operate. You also need to make sure that your dog will be happy to live with other dogs.

What’s the best alternative to kennels?

What are your options if you’d rather not leave your dog in a kennel? Dog sitting is the answer. With Holidog, you can easily find a trusted pet sitter to take care of your dog.
