To become successful, a prospective kennel owner must know how to select or design a suitable facility.

Establishing good customer relations, prevention and treatment of common pet diseases, preparation of nutritious foods, and increasing kennel profits by offering additional pet services are all emphasized.
In this 2nd edition, pet industry authority, Sam Kohl, provides you with all the essential information you need to own, operate, and manage a world-class boarding kennel.
Now included in this indespensible guide to kennel management are architectural plans for eleven different kennel layouts and designs.
