Anxiety in Dogs Boarded in Kennels
Research shows that even well-adjusted dogs can become anxious when confronted with the noise, smell and unfamiliar surroundings of boarding kennels.
Little wonder really when you consider that it is a completely different environment and routine to that which the animal is accustomed.
If you must put your dog in kennels rather than using the dog friendly alternative of home boarding, then try to minimise his anxiety by taking familiar things from home with him.
