American Boarding Kennel Association
We are accredited by the ABKA, which requires participating boarding kennels to demonstrate their adherence to a comprehensive
set of operational standards. These standards include over 200 detailed requirements for boarding kennels and were developed
over many years by the ABKA, the international trade association for the owners and operators of commercial boarding kennels.
The standards reflect the views of kennel operators, veterinarians, pet owners, and humane organizations and thus represent
the "state of the art" in animal care and management.
Boarding kennels accredited by the ABKA must submit
detailed information about their animal care procedures and business policies and submit to an on-site inspection. This program
offers pet owners the assurance that Accredited facilities have earned the ABKA "stamp of approval" by successfully
completing this comprehensive program. American Kennel Club (AKC)
