Dogs and cats are not, in fact, as happy as owners think about being left at home. Remember, very few dogs are trained as watchdogs and it is not fair to expect them to do a policeman’s job all on their own. Furthermore, pets entrusted to well-meaning but untrained neighbours, domestics or friends frequently run away or become ill due to the lack of reliable, frequent and trained supervision.
There are the dangers of your pets not being fed or being neglected, of pining, straying through gates left open, or even worse, of being run over. It is far wiser and safer to board your dog or cat with a dedicated, professional kennel which will give them lots of attention, love and care. Remember that pets, like people, usually appreciate a holiday in new surroundings with new friends. Dogs, once they settle in, have a marvellous, exciting time, like kids on a beach. Kittens take to boarding easily, too, and play around to their hearts’ content. Adult cats, though often nonchalant in their demeanour at first, soon relax and spend their time observing their neighbours and the busy staff around them. They catnap, eat, play with the care-givers, and purr!
Your pets will love you for choosing Keringa Kennels, the up-market boarding professionals. At Keringa they will enjoy a happy and safe boarding experience, and you can enjoy your time away, content in the knowledge that they are receiving the best care possible. (After you, that is!)
Keringa Kennels consists of 120 upmarket kennels, the ultimate in dog accommodation.
Each dog kennel covers 1.5 meters x 4.5 meters and has a cosy bedroom and a large play area.
North-facing, shady in summer and sunny in winter, our modern “canine simplexes” are a dog’s dream.
All pets get a health check on arrival and our kennel managers do daily checks. Dogs are bathed and brushed before going home and fed on only top quality food. You can also bring your pet’s own food which will be fed to them as per your instructions. – Please visit us to inspect (out of high season).
At Keringa we go to any lengths to make sure that pets are happy, healthy and warm in winter. Our kennels are designed to be cool in summer due to good air flow. All kennels, catteries and Forest Log cabins have infra-red heaters.
Our infra-red heaters are safe for pets and are mounted in such a way that they can’t hurt dogs and cats, they will only feel the warm, comforting glow.
You may also bring your pets’ own bedding to make sure that they have all their home comforts.
