    Well, yes your dog will need to be current on vaccinations. In addition, he will need the bordetella vaccine. The cost is usually determined by the size of your dog. Call around and get some prices. Also, it is a good idea to ask how often the dogs get walked at each place that you call about. Good luck and have a great time on your trip.

    Normally they range from around 5 to 15 pounds a night and yes you must take the vaccination papers with you when you drop the dog off !! Dont take any treats with you they never give the dog them so you might as well keep them till the dog gets back home. You will probably have allot of making up to do I know I did.

    Price varies from kennel to kennel. Call around, but dont price shop when it comes to the care of your dog. Go to the kennels and take a tour.
    Your dog will need to be up to date on rabies, distemper/parvo and bordatella (kennel cough) And depending on the kennel, he may need to be on a flea preventative (advantage, frontline etc)

    Varies wildly from kennels to kennels mate, and at most places it depends on the size of the dog. Our place (which i wont name as im not trying to advertise it) charges between ?9.50 and ?17.50 per day but the ?17.50 is for pampered pets, you wouldn’t believe how pampered they are as well! If you go to a place thats owned by a certain confectionary company they START at ?20 a day plus extra for just about everything.

    As for injections we always insist that boosters are up to date, as for kennel cough we dont insist on it, there are several strains of kennel cough and theres not a vaccine yet that protects against all of them – if there was we’d insist on it. Some places will insist on kennel cough vaccination, your vet will be able to advise you about that.

    hmmm check for the cheapest? you get what you pay for, go and ask to be shown round, if they say no then they have something to hide.

    Yes they need to be current on their shots. It costs about 15-20 dollars a day in Minnesota where I live. Might be cheaper since it’s an extended stay. Also the price depends on the size of the dog too. Call around get some quotes. Make sure they walk and play with the dog too everyday.

    kennels will not accept dogs without proof of vaccinations..depending on what kennells can cost up to ?70 per week..check for cheapest prices.

    I don’t know how much it would cost you to put your dog in a kennel for two weeks — you would need to contact the services offered in your area to find out.

    But, I do recommend you immunize your dog with whatever shots they offer — at least, the one for kennel cough and parvo.

    My dog has recently come out from a 6 week stay in kennels whilst we were in a delayed housing chain and had to sleep anywhere we could til our house got sorted! It was ?14.50 per day, because he’s a German Shepherd…it was cheaper for smaller breeds…I think ?10 was the cheapest, so it might well depend on your breed, because obviously it costs more to feed a GSD than a Jack Russell. Some kennels charge less if your dog can share with another dog, and some will charge less if you provide your own food. Just ring around.

    They have to be up to date with their vaccinations and have the kennel cough vaccination no less than 14 days before their stay is due to start.

    Hiya Gazza
    how big is your dog? if he is a large he will need a large kennel
    in the UK its about ?7.00 a day, and yes they do need to have all there shots

    Two weeks is a long time. I would check out this kennel and make sure that they treat the animals they have now good. Check out the reference and also go visit. When you pick up you dog, bring a treat or and a toy!! he will miss you and the treats will make him happy when you pick him up.

    most places are rather cheap, it was about 300 hundred dollars for us to put ours in for a month. he had to take his medicine, you just give them to the kennel people and they will administer it to the dog. you’ll need to get a paper from your vet stating what he is on and when it needs to be taken and so forth! hope this helps, holly

    well I am not sure that is the best thing to put a dog in a kennel for 2 weeks. I mean they are your companions they should be by your side 24/7. So I think they are about $ 10 and yes they need their injections. But think about what I said……..

    Yes, it’s injections should be up to date, and in Sheffield were we took our dog, the greedy gets wanted ?7.50 a night, to feed a Jack Russell. Bigger the dog, higher the price.

    You will have to check the phone book and call around, I am sure they dont all charge the same rates. I dont use kennels, I have family members watch mine or take them with us. The dog would have to be utd on shots.
