Bad Dog Boarding Kennels

Unpleasant Smells

A bad boarding kennel will often have a strong, unpleasant odor.

Unclean Facilities

Look for clean cages, floors, and feeding areas.


Overcrowded kennels can lead to stress and illness in dogs.

Lack of Supervision

Make sure the kennel has enough staff to supervise the dogs properly.

Unfriendly Staff

The staff should be friendly and attentive to the dogs.

Sick Dogs

  If you see any sick dogs at the kennel, it's a red flag.


If you notice any of these signs, it's best to find a different boarding kennel for your dog.
