How We Chose the Best Kennel Software

Many vendors offer software designed to help pet professionals keep track of their schedules and manage boarding, grooming, and pet training services. With so many tools available, it can be difficult for a kennel owner to choose just one. We evaluated each software on its kennel features, integrations, and reporting capabilities.

Kennel Features

Running a kennel is about more than spending time with cute animals. Kennel owners also have to worry about scheduling appointments, tracking inventory, processing payments, and marketing their businesses. The best kennel software makes it easier to perform these activities. We looked for software with a variety of kennel features, including appointment management, photo management, and customer management.

Integrations

Good kennel software should integrate with accounting systems and other third-party tools to help staff members make the most of their time. We looked for kennel software with pre-built integrations to help kennel owners increase efficiency and be more productive.

Reports

Kennels must keep track of customer names, contact information, animal health histories, and many other pieces of data. Tracking all this information manually can be cumbersome, and it takes up time that could be better spent on marketing and connecting with customers. We looked for kennel software that makes it easy to make sense of all this data by producing detailed reports.
