Boarding Kennels. Many boarding facilities utilize kennels rather than private rooms for their four-legged guests. Fortunately, these can be comfortable spaces for dogs to stay in and are normally sanitized quite well before new dogs come to stay. Aside from a place to sleep, these facilities also provide services to keep dogs happy. This includes feeding time, walks, running, playing, and socializing with other dogs. Since boarding kennels have staff members on-hand at all times, dog owners are able to work with them to ensure their pup is given the best care possible. This can include the administration of medications or extra exercise for active dogs.
