When you are planning a trip away you want to make sure that your pets are well taken care of and that you have complete peace of mind during your holiday. There are lots of different option for pet care and we can provide you with an excellent Pet Sitter in Kildare, but if you are considering using a boarding kennel we have put together a list of the Best Boarding Kennels Kildare along with some of the factors that you need to take into consideration when using the services of a Boarding Kennel.
Things to Consider When Selecting a Boarding Kennel in Kildare
Standard of the Facility
When you are considering a boarding kennels you should take into consideration the standard of the facility that you are booking. Make sure you take a tour of where you pets will be living for the time they are there and see whether it is heated, where they will be going for a walk and what the layout of the place is like.
It’s not going to the same as what they are used to at home but you want to make sure that they are going to be happy and comfortable during their stay.
Not all boarding kennels will offer the same level of service. I think most would often heating (but be sure to check) but some will not walk your dog as part of the daily rate. Also some may offer a different standard of food to what your dog would normally be used to.
Make sure you are clear on the following:
- Is their kennel heated?
- How often will they be walked?
- What type of food and treats will they be fed?
- Who will be taking care of your pets?
- What happens if you are delayed returning from your trip?
Maintenance of Routine
Everyone has a different routine for their dog and I know from experience life is much easier if your pet sticks to their routine. I know for example that my dog Joey likes to get fed before Coco and my cats screams for food around the same time as the dogs get fed. They all have their own routine and things get a bit confusing for them if it changes.
So when you leave your pets at the kennel make sure you ask them about feeding and walking times and whether you can specify these for your pets. For example can you request that your dog gets fed at 10am and 6pm each day and you cat gets fed at 4.30pm.
Drop Off and Collection Times
It’s important for you to find out when you can drop your pets off and when you can collect them. If you are travelling out of the country then you may be restricted by flight times as to when you can drop your pets off and when you can collect them.
You don’t want to come home and realise that the kennels is closed for collection and you can’t pick your dog up until the next day. You should also ask if there is any flexibility on those times if you get delayed.
