Overall, well worth the time reading.

Before starting or continuing to embark on the pet care industry, read this book to cover all the basics. It saved me from making a few costly mistakes such as zoning and gave me new ideas in designing my kennel for expansion in the future. Also gave reference to suppliers (most are still in business). If you are looking for ideas that have worked for other kennels, this book will touch on such subjects as kennel design and what services to provide as well as how to display your "quilt" products. Also gives an example of a boarding contract. This book is endorsed by the ABKA and that was the first reason I purchased it.
A bit thin and oriented to the big end of the scale

What I didn't realise when I ordered this is that it is an publication of a US kennel association. It is a slim book, gives a good, realistic overview of kenneling from a management perspective, and is a good thing to read if you need to decide basic questions like "is the kennel business for me?" and "what are the main issues in kennel management?" Its orientation is toward large kennels (65+ dogs) in the US. For someone like me, who is thinking about a small kennel in Australia, it was interesting, but not really worth its pricetag.
