Great question!  There are several questions you should ask but here’s  a good starting point – and don’t be shy!  Ask these questions because a skilled, qualified facility will welcome these questions:

  1. Are you licensed kennel?  Are you legally zoned to operate a kennel? 
  2. Are you inspected by Oakland County Animal Control annually? 
  3. Is your staff trained to manage dogs?  What type of training?  Are you certified?  
  4. When can I tour your facility?
  5. Tell me about the process of how you introduce my dog to other dogs.
  6. Tell me about the room my dog will be staying in.   Is it a crate?  Is it a private room?  Can I see it?
