Choosing Boarding Kennels for Your Pet

Holiday time is here again and it’s important to plan who will take care of your pet as you head away on your holidays! There are a couple of options to consider.

A Lending Hand

You may have a friend, neighbour, or family member who is willing to take care of your pet. Check that they realise the commitment they are taking on and that you feel satisfied that all of your pet’s needs will be met. Another option is a professional pet sitter who will stay in or visit your home, or mind your pets in their own home. Look for recommendations and references from other happy customers.
