Cesar Millan posts a few tips on Yahoo Pets about how to choose the best kennel for your pet if you are traveling and can’t bring your pet along.   When leaving your pet in the hands of another person, such as a pet sitter or boarding kennel, it is important to visit the facility, ask questions, get a tour, and get recommendations from friends and neighbors.  And as Cesar points out:

Above all, trust your instincts. If something just doesn’t feel right, find another venue. You always want to leave your pet in a place where you feel confident about her safety and comfort. Remember, your pet can’t call you on the pay phone and complain if she’s not happy. She’s counting on you and your knowledge of her needs to make the right decision.
