Kennels, Catteries and Pet Sitters

If you are going on holiday, away for the weekend, or need someone to look after your dog whilst you are at work, you may need to find a kennels or cattery. As with choosing any professional to care for your pet, you’ll need to do a little research to find the right person. Ask family and friends if they have any recommendations, or ask at Reception if they have used any of the businesses mentioned.

Consider whether you want a traditional kennels or cattery, or if you would prefer your pet to be looked after within a family home. House sitters may also be available to stay in your home.

Here are a few questions to ask when talking to a kennels or dog walker:

• Do you require dogs and cats to be vaccinated? (The answer should be yes!)
• Do you have insurance?
• What happens if my pet is ill whilst with you?
• What about feeding – do I bring my own food (can be a good idea to prevent upset tummies)?
• How often are the dogs walked? Are they let off the lead? Are they walked with other dogs?
• Can you give medication?

One of the most important things to do is to visit the kennels you are considering.

• Are the facilities clean and hygienic?
• Do the animals appear stressed or relaxed?
• Are the staff friendly and do they seem to enjoy their work?
• Are there outdoor exercise areas?
• Are the kennels dry, comfortable and free from draughts?
• Is water always available?

With pet sitters make sure to ask:

• How often will you visit?
• Will you water plants / close curtains etc.?
• Are you insured?

If you are worried about your dog being stressed whilst in kennels, consider using an ADAPTIL collar. It contains a chemical version of a dog pheromone, which is released by bitches when they feed their puppies. This helps them to relax. It continues to work for all stages of life. Alternatively, KalmAid may be useful for both dogs and cats. It comes in tablet form for dogs and cats, or as a gel for cats which they can lick off their paw.

Here is a list of some of the kennels, catteries and pet sitters in the area.
