Knoxville offers a variety of choices for dog, cat, and other pet owners who must leave behind their pet family members when they travel.
For many people, the kennel is the first choice that pops into mind when considering what to do with their pets, but now there are many more choices when looking for the best care option for your pets. Two popular choices in Knoxville are using a dog kennel or hiring a professional pet sitter, so let’s take a look at the these two options!
Knoxville Dog Kennels
When your pet stays at the kennel you know that their basic needs of food and care will be taken care of, and they are staying in a safe and secure place. However some things to consider are:
* Do you have to pay an extra fee for your pets to receive playtime and exercise?
* Will you be able to pick up your pet when you return home over the weekend, or will you have to wait until the kennel is “open” on Monday?
* Are you certain that none of the other pets in the kennel have highly contagious diseases such as kennel cough?
* Will your dog or cat be comfortable in an unfamiliar environment surrounded by unfamiliar pets, people, and smells?
