Many people leave the dog or cat with relatives, knowing that the animals will receive a good amount of attention. This is a great option, if you have relatives in the area.

Unfortunately, these options are usually expensive, or else not very effective at taking care of your animal; hiring someone to live in your home while you are away is expensive and uncomfortable to many. Others are unhappy with the idea of their pets being left largely alone for the duration of the trip.

Your animal will get his own kennel in which to spend the night and a portion of the day. They are usually pretty spacious, in order to accommodate a variety of species. Pet kennels also usually offer certain amenities. For instance, if your dog proves to be friendly and gets along well with other dogs, you can arrange for him to have daily playtime with other friendly dogs. This not only keeps your pet active, but happy too! The companionship that pet kennels offer is probably the single best attribute of the concept.
Most pet kennels operate under the model of a service business; if your pets have specific routines or needs, they are usually very happy to accommodate. After all, if your pet returns to you happy and healthy, you are much more likely to use the pet kennels again. So, don’t be afraid to outline your pet’s schedule.
