    Default Cleaning procedures...

    How far do we take this idea,hubby wants to put handwash at each kennel,like the ones in hospital now.We also thought about boot dipping in disinfectant before entering and after leaving the block.What do you think.Is this over the top.

    No I don't think this is over the top at all, the last thing you want is infection! I would also advise a thorough scrub down of each kennel in between customers too! If people think it is over the top then you only have to think how quickly germs can spread, MRSA, Kennel Cough etc commonest cause of infections being spread is on the soles of shoes and the palms of hands!

    Well that's my opinion anyway!!!

    Thanks Cathryn,i need to hear what people think and expect.I thought the boot wash was good but admit to hubbs idea as slightly over the top.Dont worry all kennels will be cleaned and air dried in between dogs,i know that.

    Justine, you are such an inspiration. The area that I live in could sure use a kennel like you are building and I just don't have the courage to take that leap like you have done!

    I love the idea of a boot dipping. It sounds like you are going to have a really great kennel when you are finished.

    The boot dipping is important, IMO.

    As for the hand sanitizer, I'd call a few vet surgeries and ask what they use....then copy it.

    Infection control is very important.

    Sounds great, you're certainly covering all the bases.

    I think it's a great idea. I tell you what, I think it would make customers feel at ease as you clearly are being very careful.

    How are you going to advertise? Maybe you can invite your local vets and groomers for your open day and they would probably be impressed enough to recommend you.

    We have Kennels in the next road to us and I know someone who put there dogs there for a week and they had chewed their leads in two. They must have been tied up for a long time to do that Last year a dog escaped and was killed on the A127

    A little further afield, about 15 miles away, are the wonderful Mrs Pagan's kennels "Sorata", everyone raves about them. Mrs Pagan breeds cavaliers and does cavalier rescue too. She has a great web site, maybe you could have one too.
