Just in time for the pre-Christmas madness, the Humane Society of the United States has published this very useful list of things to consider when choosing a boarding kennel for your pet.
How to Choose a Boarding Kennel for Your Pet : The Humane Society of the United States
Is your dog joining you for holiday celebrations this year, or are they going to a kennel? In our area, most kennels are fully booked for the Christmas holiday period.

Keeping with the theme of dog-friendly accommodation… If you are in New Zealand then you should check out the Pets Can Come Too website.
This website lists holiday homes where pets are allowed. The search function on the site is easy to use. You will need to read the fine print, however. For example, some properties only accept cats and others may require that your dog is crated when indoors.
If you own a holiday home and accept pets, then please do your part to grow this community-of-interest in New Zealand by registering your property. Heather at Pets Can Come Too says:
We offer all new advertisers six months free advertising after which it costs $95.00 p.a. however there is no obligation to continue advertising with us if you do not wish to do so.
