It may be necessary one day, however, to board your dog
while you are on an extended vacation or business trip. In the United States,
kennels which are members of the American Boarding Kennels Association should provide very
good care of your pet. The A.B.K.A. is a nationwide non-profit organization
established to promote high standards and professionalism in the pet-boarding industry.
Make certain to visit the kennels for an inspection
before you board your dog. Examine the facilities, check the cleanliness of the
stalls and exercise runs, talk to the owners about any special dietary or medical
requirements your dog may have, look at the dogs staying there, and find out if there is a
veterinarian on call. Also, make your reservation well in advance, particularly if
you plan to be away in the busy summer months or during the sometimes hectic holidays.
You can help your pet feel less homesick by taking his
bed or favorite toy along. Finally, remember to leave an address or telephone number
where you can be reached in case of an emergency.
