There are numerous requirements for keeping and handling dogs that can be found in the protection of animals an dog regulation. Defined here are, among other things, the conditions that enclosures and boxes must meet, how the room to move about in and the activity of dogs shoud be and at which locations a kennel may be opened at all. In purely residential areas, for example, this is not permitted for reasons of noise and odour protection. To verify that all boarding and grooming requirements are met, a certificate of competence must be provided. If you have training in animal care or as a veterinary assistant, this may suffice as proof. The kennel is finally approved by an official veterinarian after the basic permit has been issued and the business for the kennel has been registered. Accordingly, it is important to be well prepared for the upcoming reviews in order to avoid unnecessary complications.
It is especially important to carefully plan both the concept of the kennel and the actions you want to be visible with. And: Especially with regard to pets, customer satisfaction should always come first.
