But in good kennels, people work with a natural love for dogs, which will be kind and gentle and take care of their pet as best they can.
Nursery option: most veterinary offices offer landing services. Although care in the veterinarian’s office may be limited, with small cages and limited exercise, many people, especially those whose animals have medical needs, feel safer and leave their pets with a vet that has been checked. Other owners turn to private nurseries, which can vary from nude to luxurious. The scattered rooms are not very different from veterinary offices. The cells are usually small and the exercise is limited to two walks per day. The most expensive facilities offer mixed play time for socialized dogs, playgrounds for outdoor activities, long runs, no cages and grooming services (all this may be for an additional fee). Exclusive hotels for dogs are fashionable in some areas. Your dog can receive a massage, a bath and a haircut, obedience training, relaxing music and luxury bedding while you’re away.
Where to start: Whatever level of care you choose, there are some basic things you should know and do before making the final decision on where to sit with your pet.

If you are convinced that the nursery meets the basic requirements, plan a visit.
