Going on holiday and nobody to look after the pooch? Check out our top list of kennels, carers and even hotels for your dogs in Hong Kong.
Located in Sai Kung Country Park, Dog Dayz is a fully licensed home boarding facility that promises to provide a loving home for your pet while you are on your travels. During the summer months the air conditioning runs 24 hours. At night each dog gets his own crate or mat, owner Andrew (think dog whisperer) won’t put dogs in the crate, though, the dogs only go in if they choose to. Further, every dog goes for a walk twice a day. Andrew asks pawrents to visit in advance with their dog as he closely manages the balance of dogs staying with him. He needs to know they will mix well.
Prices start at $300/day

Pet World Resort
Pet World Resort’s focus is to monitor each dog daily, give them plenty of hugs and make sure they get lots of exercise and playtime. There’s also a swimming pool for dogs who love water. In addition, owners are kept informed of how their dog is settling in via photographs sent by email. According to the reviews, it is very much a holiday camp for pooches. If you’re considering a stay here for your dog, you can arrange a visit between 2-4pm on a Saturday or Sunday.
