I have been told two tragic stories recently (one a friend of a family member and another directly from the person it happened to) about dogs left into kennels while people go on holiday, both incidents were due to lack of supervision and resulted in the death of the dogs concerned.
I would ask people to please, please check out where you are leaving dogs and go by word of mouth,friends experiences references etc and not by how 'nice' the place looks or flashy ads saying how great the place is. Both people are taking legal action, but that won't replace their much loved pet .....Hope this is ok to post, just wanted to make people aware.

Yes, very good advice; and how tragic for the families involved. . This is also true of some home boarding situations where the ads have really worried me -- dogs left together at night, uncrated, without supervision.
PM me the kennel names if you know them and I can add them to my caution list privately.
