What To Look For In A Dog Kennel

When you’re about to take that vacation and you need to leave your dog behind, your best option is to find a kennel. There are a lot of kennels in Los Angeles, and you want to be sure to find one that you can trust. Your dog needs to be comfortable while you are gone and you need to be relaxed on vacation rather than worrying about how your dog is doing. To find a quality kennel, look for the following things:

Finding the Perfect Kennel

When you go looking for a kennel, you will need to keep your budget in mind. Find the highest price that you are willing to pay and find kennels in the area that offer their services within your budget. You can call around to find out what the prices are for your dog’s stay. Find a few kennels that you are interested in and take your dog in to visit each one. The people there should be friendly and helpful. They should give your dog a warm welcome. This shows that they care about each dog that comes into their kennel. Ask for a tour of the kennel. The conditions should be fairly clean – dogs should be in cages that are comfortable and large enough to roam. Ask what exercise and food your dog will get each day. Your dog should get some time to run around and play each day, and should have proper water and food. Some kennels even offer grooming or other services. Ask to see where your dog will spend most of his or her time. It should be in an area where your dog will not be antagonized by other dogs.

After you have taken your vacation, ask about how your dog was during the stay. You can expect your dog to whine or be generally unhappy the first time you leave because he or she may be confused. However, if you really like this kennel out of all the kennels in Los Angeles, use the same one each vacation you take. This will give your dog some regularity and he or she will get used to it over time.

Loosen Stuck Sliding Windows and Doors

If you have sliding doors and windows in your home and they are not budging when you close or open them, try this simple trick. Get a silicone lubricant spray and spray it along the railings to smooth the skids. This usually happens with cold climate because metals contract and friction is high.

So don’t despair when your sliding doors or windows are stuck. Head to the nearest hardware store and get a silicone lubricant spray. That should do the trick!

Saving Tip: Liquid Hand Soap

I do a lot of chores at home and one of that is to pick up after the mess of my diva dog. I have anti-bacterial liquid soap in every bathroom in the house so I can wash my hands as soon as I soiled them.

Since I don’t use the normal bar soap because it’s not as hygienic as dispensing the liquid from the bottle, I keep the other half of the liquid soap in another container for future use. I then I mix water in the bottle.

My liquid soap life is now prolonged rather than using the pure concentrated liquid soap.

That’s a simple money-saving trick that works for me.
