View Full Version : cavalier kennels

does anyone know of kennels that will take just Cavaliers. Usually my parents would take Prince when we are on holiday, but this year they are coming on holiday with us. We are absolutely dreading leaving him for the week. Prince is 1 and a real joy !!

Have you talked to your breeder? A lot of breeders will dog-sit for dogs they have bred.

If that isn't an option, people will need to know where you are located to give you any kind of specific direction.

No, my breeder is located quite a long journey from me, so wouldnt be an option. We are based in Dublin.

had been thinking, if there were any other cavalier owners, that we might do a "holiday swap" thing, i.e. when they were away we would take their dog and we were away they would take ours, would be peace of mind knowing they were in a home environment with other cavalier lovers.

TKC on this board, home boards dogs in Ratoath -- but not cavaliers only. So does Thelly (southside). I would PM them; I don't have anything to do with boarding or kennelling myself. Personally, I wouldn't swap my dogs around with other people simply because it places a lot of responsibility on people who might have dogs that don;t, say, bolt out the door if given a chance, or don;t have a deaf dog, or have small kids who might leave a door open... there are too many things that would worry me. I go either for an insured home boarding or kennelling situation where the dogs are all safely confined and there's no chance they can get out to a road. I have seen too many lost listings that say the dog got out when it was staying with a relative or a friend...

thanks karlin, i hadnt really thought of the safety aspect of minding someone elses dog. Yes, i will contact the two you mentioned and get Prince organised. Have to admit though, am absolutely dreading the thought of leaving him, given their nature, he is quite clingy, and would hate to think of him pining away, - well can only hope it will be a positive for him.
