American Boarding Kennel Association (ABKA)


I made a new friend through my blog today. She's called Liz Blondy and she has just started up Canine to Five Detroit Dog Day Care. I have so much respect for anyone who strides out to set up their own business. Go Liz Go!

I noticed on her website a link to the American Boarding Kennel Association (ABKA) [update: this organization doesn't exist anymore; however, check the comments for other places you can learn about pet boarding] and I thought it would be interesting to learn a little more about them. Here are some of the services I found on the ABKA website:

  • if you are looking for a pet boarding facility, check out this online info pack that has some useful tips on what to look for
  • if you run a boarding facility that could use the benefits of association membership, there are four types of memberships
  • ABKA provides online kennel staff education
  • ABKA has a classifieds section with items such as kennels for sale - entrepreneurs check this out

All in all, it seems to be a pretty useful site with relevant information for those interested in dog boarding. There are other topics but they are covered to a lesser extent.

While you can't predict when your pet is going to get sick or injured, you can protect yourself from expensive veterinary bills. Embrace Pet Insurance gives you the freedom to do what’s best for your pet without stressing over the cost. Easily personalize your coverage to fit your budget and your pet’s needs, then visit any vet for nose-to-tail coverage. Check out what the Embrace plan covers or compare pet insurance providers to learn more.

Mind if we pay your vet bills?
