You need to consider when looking for a pet boarder that they not only have insurance but are Licensed by the local Authority.

In Hull this is Hull City Council.

Anyone who boards animals for a business needs this and it Authorizes the premises as fit to home board.

We undergo a stringent vetting by the council which includes Risk assessments,insurance checks,fire escape checks etc.

Ask anyone you are considering to home board to see this License as there are a lot of un-regulated companies out there. 

You do not need a License for Dog walking or home visits.
