Why Running a Dog Kennel is the Ultimate Dream Job

By VeronicaPostolski. | Activities for Your Dog Cool Dog Products

Dog lovers everywhere can probably agree that the ultimate dream job includes being surrounded by cute, loving pups all day. But for most, that kind of job is wishful thinking.

  Kennel for Dogs? How to Make it Easy for Pet Dogs. It takes lots of hard work and dedication to succeed in a pet business, as well as lots of time and effort; it's not for everyone. Bertha, one of the owners of Kamp K9 Hawaii LLC, never expected to open a kennel of her own, but after her dog got incredibly sick after a stay at a traditional facility, she did just that. Going through such a traumatic experience has helped teach Bertha the value of providing the best care for the dogs she looks after. "So many families out here care a great deal about their dogs," says Bertha. "We wanted them to feel reassured that when they leave their pups with us we will take extra, extra care of their fur-family members and they will be taken in like part of our ohana (family in Hawaiian)." At Kamp K9 Hawaii, the most fulfilling part of each day is watching furry guests play and relax. For Bertha giving pups the attention they deserve during their time away from their families is one of the most important parts of the job. It can be scary and stressful to be in a new place with lots of strange dogs around. The serene and cozy home dog kennel provides a caring atmosphere for the furry friends where they can enjoy a little vacation of their own. Being around the pups all day, kennel staff get to experience all of their different personalities and all the silly things they do. It's even better it gets captured on camera!

All fun and games aside, running a kennel is serious work!

With paperwork and administrative duties, sometimes it can be hard to get away from all the craziness and spend time with the dogs. At Kamp K9 Hawaii, spending time with guests is a top priority, so they use ProPet software to help them manage their day-to-day operations and communicate better with their customers. "It's so much easier now to have our clients be able to reach out to us, update their information, request a reservation and pay with one system as opposed to calling, emailing and texting," Bertha says. "ProPet Software is a one stop shop for our clients and for us as well."

Ultimately, when running a dog kennel, it's important to focus on what's best for your furry guests.

A fun and relaxing atmosphere where they can play and run around, as well as lots of love and attention, will ensure a happy stay with happy pups! If you think that starting a kennel is out of your reach, think again! Take Bertha as an example. Some hard work and lots of love can go a long way. And it doesn't hurt to have some help from friends like ProPet Software either. That way you can focus on loving and caring for every one of your furry guests!

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.


We liked the first cover so much that a few days later we purchased a second one. The cover installs very, very easily, fits and covers the rear seat and the back of the front seats of our Subaru Tribeca perfectly, has flaps that cover the door-side edges of the rear seat, and stays perfectly in place. Spilled or tracked water beads up on the material and can be easily wiped off. At first our dog did tend to slide just a little on the new cover, but he soon learned to stand, sit, and lay just as well as he did before on the uncovered seat. The hammock portion seems like it might provide some little bit of protection in a sudden stop (our guy will chew apart any "doggie seat belt" type of restraint in very short order - so that option is out of the question for us). As to keeping him out of the car front-area - well, our long-legged Standard Poodle has no problem in still looking closely out the front windshield by putting his front feet on the center console - straddling the hammock - with no problem whatsoever. But we did discover that having the hammock in place does allow us to safely keep his water bottle and dish, his leash, and an old towel on the floor under the hammock - where he can no longer get at them (especially the leash and towel) to chew on them. All in all, an excellent seat cover.


My furbabies don't like leather seats!!!! But they love this seat cover!!!

Very hard to find a split bench seat cover at a reasonable price, this one fit the bill. Easy to install, very durable and looks to be easy to clean. Wanted something that would protect the leather seats and was pet friendly (hate it when the material of regular seat covers snags toenails and collars). I don't think I will have to buy another for many years!!!

My Doodle approves!

Received on time, fits great and easy to install. Color is a great match. So far, so good. Durability? Time will tell. It appears to be well constructed.

Fits my 2018 VW Tiguan perfectly

Very happy with our purchase. Fits perfectly, was easy to install and keeps the leather seats in our brand new vehicle perfectly clean.

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

This is my 2nd seat cover from 4knines and love them both. The product and service were both fantastic.


Repeat customer VERY satisfied.

We have made several purchases from 4Knines and are VERY satisfied with products (cargo liner, back seat cover, bucket front seat cover...). I volunteer at a shelter and take dogs offsite daily. Always a Pleasure doing business with 4Knines. Highly recommend.

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.
