Fact Finding - Conduct a phone interview. How long have they been in business? Can they provide you with a list of references? Visit the operation and tour the facility. Is the place clean, and does it smell? See where the dogs are boarded and walked...do they seem happy and well cared for?
Recommendations - Talk to several kennels before you make your choice...ask neighbors and friends who have previously boarded their dogs. These are some of the best ways to get good information. Select the best place, not the cheapest facility.
Investigate the Kennel Staff - Is the staff experienced in animal care? Is the same person seeing your dog each day or does the kennel have daily changes. You want the staff to know what they are doing and care about your dog.
What Are The Kennel Requirements- What kind of vaccines are required and do they need a vaccine record? Do they supply food and treats and can you leave toys and favorite blankets? Are you able to leave your pets' harness, leash and collar?
Schedule of events - Are they walked...how often do they get out...do they have a program to keep dogs segregated according to size and disposition?
Feeding requirements - You can request that your dog eat only his food and not the kennel food. The kennel food and treats can cause vomiting and or diarrhea. Your dog is in a new environment...this causes some stress...do not subject him to additional changes.
Contact data - Leave all home, business and cell phone numbers in case of an emergency.
Provide Emergency Instructions- In the event of an emergency, leave instructions on how to proceed. During an emergency, the kennel has their own veterinarian...but you can leave the name and number of your personal vet. Provide exact instructions of what you will allow or will not allow them to do during an emergency...in case you are not available.
Medical History Records- Provide the kennel with a complete record of your dog's medical history. This data should include diagnosed conditions and problems...and all medications. Leave information about microchip and tag numbers. Advise the kennel of any behavior problems such as aggression and any other quirks.
Medication Instructions- If your dog is taking medication, indicate the name, dose and frequency. Advise if your dog has special foods or dietary restrictions. Always keep instructions simple with a number to call in case of questions.
Summary- The process is important so you can have peace of mind that your beloved dog is going to be well cared for and content while you are away.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.
I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
