If you are looking for somewhere to put your dog or cat while you are away on holiday, now is the time to start contacting local pet boarding companies. My name is Mike and last year, I had to spend some time away from home so I could travel to complete a business transaction in Asia. I am the proud owner of two dogs and I love them more than life itself. I was concerned about what I would do with the dogs' when I was away. My friend said I should try the local pet day care and boarding centre. The staff were fantastic and my dogs' were really well looked after.
