I'd had an idea that as i love dogs and so does my partner, we could start a boarding business but didnt know where to start. This book is perfect to get you on the right tracks and has definatley helped with our decision to go ahead with this venture. It is a really easy book to read and would suit anybody who wants to get into this busniss but doesnt know where to turn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most useful publication 23 April 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this with a view to purchasing a local kennel which was on the market,but as an ex veterinary nurse it didn't tell me anything new about the day to day practicalities of running a boarding establishment.However there was a great deal of extremely useful information about other factors ,such as working out potential profits and the role of organisations such as RSPCA which I found very informative.Incidentally,using the formula provided for determining whether the kennel would be profitable meant we didn't proceed with the purchase-I would have dropped about 10,000 in salary from working 15h/wk in the NHS to working 7d/wk for myself!

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect guide 22 Sep 2012
By Laura
Format:Paperback
My partner and I are looking at the possibility of setting up a kennel business together. This book has been a god send. It's a step by step guide from start to finish. There's some brilliant advice to get you started and help you set up initially. It also gives you tonnes of advice to assist you in the running of your kennel. I wouldn't think about starting your kennel business without reading this book first!
