If you are travelling away for a period of time and are unable to leave your pet with a trusted friend or family member, you may need to look for Melbourne dog boarding services. This type of service provides a safe place for owners to house their dogs while they travel out of town.
In general, boarding services are offered by animal shelters and veterinary clinics where kennels are set up in a separate area for dogs to be housed. Start with your dog’s vet and ask him or her if they offer boarding services and how much it costs. They may charge you a weekly or daily fee. You should also ask if this fee includes the dog’s food or whether you have to provide the food yourself. Visit the kennel before you put your dog there to ensure that it looks clean and safe.
