View Full Version : Kennel size for boarding

After months of calling there is a cancelation on the QM2 with Cunard cruises. They have one kennel available.

I believe both dogs will fit comfortably (happily) in the kennel together. Cunard agents disagree - they have repeatedly told me that the dogs will spend most of the day in the kennel for a whole week. So, karlin and others who are familiar with boarding, especially UK standards:

Both of my cavaliers are on the small end- Guinness is 16 pounds, of a kind of lanky build, thistle is 13 pounds, petite but proportionate. The kennel is 30" wide x 35.5" deep x and 24" high. they will receive 3 walks per day, and there are visiting hours each day.

My dogs regularly share a 24" x 36" kennel in the house, and also when boarded. They get along famously, shared food bowl, no problems there.

Problem solved. Thistle will stay with my aunt and uncle in NJ until I can come back and get her.

That's good to hear. It was a difficult one, that is a long time for them to be confined and in some ways it might have been better for them to have each other for company. However I guess Cunard would have the final say anyway.

When are you leaving?
