Lynn H. says, "Most cats do get stressed out by being in an unfamiliar place, with unfamiliar people and animals. However, there are certain circumstances that can make catteries the better option. Some cats get even more stressed out all alone. Some cats need meds or don't have a reliable person to pet-sit. A long time ago I went on holiday for 2 week, and a trusted friend watched my cats. When I came back, it was clear that (now ex) friend hadn't bothered to clean the litter boxes all week, so they were absolutely disgusting. Luckily had another friend to help out. I honestly wouldn't blame them if they had. And luckily friend did at least feed them and provide clean water- I've heard horror stories of pet sitters (even paid professionals) who don't even show up! I would feel more comfortable if I had some that was professional that cares for cat in cage free environment. Love this place Kitty-Winks luxury cat boarding." Read more

I have worked with animals for 13 years, I love all creatures of all sizes! Animals are my passion. I used to be a veterinary technician so I am trained in many aspects of animal health. I also have experience with large packs, aggressive breeds and special needs pets. I will take great care of your pets and make sure they are comfortable and happy while you are away! I do not offer boarding in my home, but I will come to yours! I find they are more comfortable in their familiar surroundings and at the same time you have someone to watch your place while you're away (water plants, bring the mail inside, etc). I can spend the night with them i

As a life long dog owner and dog lover it was a natural progress to offer my love of dogs to those who also love dogs, but have to be away from their fur baby for business or travel. I care for them in my own home so they would get the same attention as if they were in their own home. Also the same attention I give to my own dogs.

Your dog boarding questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

What is dog boarding?

It happens to the best of us—we have to go out of town or work on a big job and there’s no one to look after the dog. Thankfully, there are a fair number of dog boarding opportunities for your dog near your home. Dog boarding kennels provide your dog a safe and secure place to call their home away from home while you are away. Dog boarding is sometimes accompanied by other services, such as dog training and dog grooming.

How much does dog boarding cost?

Dog boarding costs $40 a night on average, depending on where you live, the size of your dog, and how long of a stay your pet needs. While the cost of boarding your dog may depend on a number of circumstances, most companies charge per day and/or night. Overall, you can expect the range to be between $25 and $85 each night.

What vaccinations do dogs need for boarding?

Dogs need proof of Distemper, Parvo and Bordetella (kennel cough) annually and Rabies every 1-3 years. Puppies must be 10 days past their final round of distemper/parvo vaccination before kennels will accept them for boarding. Vaccinations need to be given no less than 7 days prior to boarding. If this is the dog's first Bordetella vaccination, it must be given 2 weeks prior to boarding.

How old does a dog have to be for boarding?

For all breeds of dogs, most dog kennels require the dog to be at least 4 months old (12 to 16 weeks) old. This is because all certified kennels require incoming puppies to have had their first round of adult shots at 12 weeks, followed by the second round at around 16 weeks.

What do I need to take my dog to the kennel?

When preparing to take your dog to the kennel, remember to:

  1. Be up to date on their vaccinations. Vaccinations need to be given no less than 7 days prior to boarding.
  2. Pack plenty of your dog’s usual food for the length of their stay.
  3. Pack any medications or supplements that your dog may need.
  4. Pack your dog's leashes.
  5. Write a list of any special instructions you may have for your kennel regarding feeding times, portions for food, your local vet's phone number, and where you can be reached.
  6. Don't forget to pack your dog's favorite toys. An old t-shirt that smells like you can also make for a great cuddle toy!

What is the difference between dog sitting and boarding?

The difference between dog sitting and boarding is the length of stay and attention of care. Dog boarding is like a hotel, where it's typically an overnight stay at a kennel where your dog is around other dogs. On the other hand, a dog sitter will watch your pet at either their or your home, or they may just stop by to care for your pets two or three times per day.

While in-home dog care might feel uncomfortable to some because of giving a stranger access to your home, having someone stop by can be much less intimidating for the dog than having to stay in a crate or small room overnight with other dogs around. If you are one of those dog owners who would rather your dog be in his or her own home while you are out of town, you may want to check out local dog sitters near you.

How long before boarding does dog need a Bordetella shot?

In general, puppies can receive injectable Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccines between 6 and 8 weeks of age and booster shots when they're 10 to 12 weeks old. Adult dogs generally need booster vaccines for Bordetella in intervals of six months to a year. If this is the dog's first Bordetella vaccination, it must be given 2 weeks prior to boarding.

We were lucky enough to be able to adopt Mars and Pepsi. Stacy is amazing and has beautiful Bengals and ALC's with a superb facility. Their personalities are just fantastic. Very cat I saw was that way!! I highly recommend her if you are wanting to add one of these magnificent creatures to your family.
