charity called [The
Blue Cross]for over 20 years, so you can easily guess his interest
and motivation is based solely on improving animal welfare.
Animal shelters take the hardest wear and tear of all – and
often deal with dogs in need of the greatest care, from initial disorientation
through to actual trauma. So - if David's advice on kennels design
can help these dogs who are most in need - you can EASILY
imagine how they can help dogs during a temporary stay in a boarding
The difference you can make to dogs
- with the right knowledge,
is E N O R M O U S ! ! !

ways including consultancy, advice, information, expert witness in

David has also had the privilege of assisting hundreds of
animal lovers worldwide to become kennels owners themselves.
Working for a big rescue for such a long time, you can just
imagine the breadth of kennels facilities, suppliers, products,
materials and level of care he has seen - from cruel to amazing.
I (Kay) look after our Members and customers, and design and publish
the books and all our websites, including this one.
And to make sure as many people benefit from this special knowledge
we pour all this hard-to-come-by and useful information into our websites and
