27 December 2012, 11:26
Having a pet is definitely a rewarding experience. They are referred as an invaluable member of family. This is why they deserve the best when you are on long trip. For some pets, this separation period becomes difficult after having your love all year round. If you want to enjoy holidays getting complete peace of mind, it is essential to find out the best dog boarding kennels or Melbourne catteries where your pets can also have fun and enjoy their holidays too. There are a number of pet kennels in Melbourne; research for the all in your area prior to making any decision.

What Features You Should Look for?

While selecting a Melbourne cattery or dog boarding kennel, ensure that people you are handling over the responsibility of caring your pets have been in the same profession from long time. As well, they should have safe and fun surroundings so that they do not get bored when they are away from their house.

It is also important to know how they are being fed. A pet, such as dogs in particular, will feel at home only when they get fun and food at a pet kennel as usual. Also look for the time schedules of dog boarding kennels for offering foods to your best friend.

Seek only for the professional dog boarding kennels and Melbourne catteries as they can provide your pet a safe, homely and fun environment. These days, there are so many such self-claimed pet kennels in Melbourne.

Ask for if they offer individualised boarding facility or boarding facility for many pets together. Combined facility is cheap compared to the individualised one. If you like to have individualised facility, always go for the professional one only.

Keep in mind that your pets are quite sappy about being separated from their home owners. So, it’s essential to give them an environment where they get good services and feel like they are at home.

To find out one such, the best way is to go through online, particularly when you have no prior experience. Know what their terms and policies and what kinds of services they offer if you want to consider their facility. Secondly, you can collect the references from your friends and relatives. Remember that pet kennels in Melbourne are now quite reliable than ever before. These days, many pet boarding services offer long term dog boarding and cat boarding services.

Once you have selected the right boarding facility, if possible take your pet to stay there for a day or few hours on its own prior to leaving him.
