There are a number of different types of pet boarding establishments, with different names, all offering boarding services and more or less the same kind of service.
As the name implies, pet boarding (kennels, catteries etc.) involves entrusting your pet to an establishment set up to look after your animal while you’re away.
Nowadays you can find all sorts of different establishments where your pet can relax and enjoy himself, while you’re on holiday or on a trip.
Pet boarding remains relatively easy to find depending on the services offered. Some boarding establishments are even able to accommodate all kinds of pets (dogs, cats, small pets etc.).
However there are also many places which only take specific species in particular catteries and dog kennels.
So if you own more than 1 type of pet, it makes sense to check with the boarding establishment ahead of time whether they can accommodate all your pets or not.
Boarding is not only available for all types of animals, but it is also a flexible solution which adapts easily to your needs.
For example many pet boarding establishments are open all year round and of course throughout the summer – from May to September.
Thus if you need boarding for a few days or weeks or even months, most boarding establishments will be able to accommodate your pet(s).
If you did need boarding for a long period, it would however make sense to let the establishment know well in advance, so that they can set up the ideal conditions for your pet.
