There are kennels where you can leave your dog when you take off from your Bannockburn home for Spring Break, and there are kennels where your dog can vacation while you’re away vacationing?
Some kennels are just that; they’re places where you can leave your dog while you’re away. The folks may be fastidious about cleaning, feeding and providing fresh water for your dog but these kennels don’t go beyond that. Your dog will be fine while you’re away but your dog will also be bored out of his or her mind.
The alternative to the no-frills kennel is the kennel that provides an experience, even an adventure for your dog. You’re going away on vacation and, though you can’t take your dog with, why shouldn’t your dog have a little vacation while you’re gone, too. That’s what these full-service kennels provide.
What can you expect from a full-service kennel, as opposed to the no-frills kennel? At the full-service kennel, your dog will have options that include:
- Better rooms: A better room is a spacious room with easy access between inside and outside rooms. These rooms are comfy and cozy. The temperature is controlled so your dog is as warm, or cool, depending on the weather, as though they were in your own home.
- Dog walks: ‘Dog Walks,’ in this instance is a verb, not a noun. As a noun, it would refer to an area where a dog can walk back and forth. As a verb, it means that someone actually takes the dog for a walk. The better kennels offer the latter. There is nothing quite as special for a dog in a kennel than the opportunity to get out and stretch his or her legs.
- Television: Yes, dogs do watch television. Though, just as too much television can rot the brains of children, too much television may not be good for dogs, having a television can break the monotony for a dog stuck in a small room while you’re away. The better kennels actually offer flat-screen, televisions with dog-friendly programming.
- Board & Train: Let that sink in – ‘Board & Train.’ What that means is, while you’re away, your dog will attend an exciting classroom environment where they’ll learn to behave like a true lady or gentleman. You’ll come home to a more socially adept pet. And, the classes are fun. Dogs love them and they’ll love you for giving them the opportunity.
Most kennels are good at what they do. But, if you have a choice when you leave your Bannockburn home for Spring Break, would you want to put your dog in a simple kennel or a kennel that offers a full range of options to engage your dog?
