Dog kennels

We'll be in Austria for three weeks this summer, just outside Zell am See, and we're bringing our border collie, which we've done before with no problem. However,this time we'd really like to take a city trip for a few days, probably too Slovenia. We'd rather not take the dog on that - he's not really a city dog! - and I'm wondering whether anyone knows any good kennels in the area where we could leave him for a few days?

I assume that the number of kennels in the countryside is rather low, you will find more in the vicinities of cities. In the countryside dog owners rather bring their dog to relatives or the neighbor takes care.

Do you think Klagenfurt would be big enough to have anything? What would a boarding kennels be called in German..... Hundehotel?

There seems to be one at Karnten and one at Baldramsdort, but I'd really want a recommendation....

In German such a facility is called "Tierpension".

In case anyone else is looking for such a place, the vet we use here has recommended a lady called Beate Specht in Taxenbach. She seems very nice, but it's not cheap - 30 euros a day!

This is her email

Be aware that she will want you to have public liability insurance for your dog.
