How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Instead of boarding at kennels, many travelers take their pets along for the ride, leave them with friends or family, or hire professional sitters. Each of these options comes with pros and cons.

If you can’t take your furry best friend on vacation with you, you may have to book him or her into a kennel. We provide ratings of local spots, plus advice and ideas on how to make sure you and your pet both have a good experience.

For your pet’s stay to go well, it’s not enough to select a kennel carefully; you also have to prepare your pet properly and then care for it properly after its stay.

As with choosing a doctor for a human, while you can’t assess all aspects of a veterinarian’s technical skills and expertise, you can judge many factors central to good medical care for your pet.

Because many health problems are subtle and easily overlooked, you should regularly evaluate your pet’s general health with a nose-to-tail inspection.

To assess the true value of pet insurance, we conducted an in-depth cost/benefit analysis of 11 plans. Visit our "Pet Insurance" section for those results.
