The financial cost of boarding your dog, may vary from place to place. In the Manawatu for example its anything from $12-$30 per day.
You will find most kennels also charge an extra surcharge, if you board your dog during public holidays, such as Christmas or if your dog has not been spayed or neutered.
You may also find, many kennels may ask you to bring your dog in for day stays, if your dog hasn’t been in a kennel environment before. There is a good reason for that.
Please read my Kennel Stress articles on this blog, they will tell you everything you need to know regarding stress in dogs.
Some may also have a policy of not taking certain breeds of dogs. Most will not take dog aggressive dogs, as they are not setup to do so.
If you are going away on holiday, dog boarding costs need to be factored into your holiday budget and seeking out a boarding kennel needs to be done sooner rather than later.
I am still surprised by how many people don’t do this, they wait and then ring around a couple of weeks prior to them leaving to go on holiday, looking for a kennel to board their dog and asking for a discount to boot, which personally I think is a bit rude.
