As a pet boarding facility owner or manager, you know that taking care of animals is a lot of work. Keeping track of appointments, payments, and customer information can be time-consuming and stressful. That's where kennel boarding software comes in. With features like online booking, automated reminders, and integrated payment processing, this type of software can help you streamline your operations and focus on what really matters: providing great care to your furry guests.
Grow your client base with Doxford’s online bookings. According to a study by Weebly, 70% of small business owners who offer online booking have seen an increase in appointments or bookings. By offering online booking, kennel owners can increase their client base and make it easier for people to book their services.
In addition to online booking, kennel boarding software like Doxford automates all of the messy paperwork, from invoicing to documentation to financial reports. This can be a huge time saver and can free up kennel owners to focus on what they do best: caring for the animals. With Doxford, clients can also book and pay for services in advance, which can help kennel owners avoid worrying about payment and financial issues.
Another important feature of kennel boarding software is the ability to create a customized web page for the business. With Doxford, kennel owners can design their own web page, add services, and personalize their information. This feature is amazingly customizable and can help kennel owners make their business look the way they want it to, which can help build their brand and create a business they're proud of.
Doxford also helps kennel owners get paid faster. Clients can book and pay for services in advance, which means kennel owners don't have to worry about chasing down payments or dealing with payment issues. Doxford's integration with payment processors like PayPal and Stripe makes it easy for customers to pay for their pets' stays online.
Doxford sends automated email and SMS reminders to your customers to help reduce no-shows and missed appointments. This can help you avoid lost revenue and wasted time, and it also shows your customers that you care about their business. In fact, 60% of clients are less likely to forget about an appointment if they receive a text reminder.
The online calendar feature of kennel boarding software can also be incredibly helpful. With Doxford's online calendar, kennel owners can see exactly what animals are coming to stay when. The calendar also blocks out unavailable dates and times, so everyone knows which times are free and which aren't. This can help keep both kennel owners and clients in the know and prevent scheduling conflicts.
Owning a kennel or pet hotel can be a fulfilling and rewarding career for those who love working with animals. However, managing all of the administrative tasks and keeping track of client and animal information can be a daunting task. Fortunately, there is a solution: kennel boarding software. With this type of software, kennel owners can easily manage their business, streamline their operations, and keep track of all their client and animal information in one place.
94% of customers are more likely to choose a new service if they have online booking.

Boarding pets is an art but we bring in the science. We know you’re always busy, so imagine you didn’t need to spend so much time stressing over paperwork and appointment making. Doxford keeps everything in one place and lets you focus on what matters: the animals.
It can be frustrating to schedule appointments in pet boarding. Your customers want to choose the days that suit them and you want to be able to remember which days you do and do not have available. With our calendar, Doxford does both of these for you. Clients can pick the exact days they want their animals staying with you, and Doxford’s calendar blocks out the days that they can’t. Your customers can book anytime, anywhere, so you improve you and your clients’ freedom, choice, and communication. And there’s no confusion.
Running a kennel or cattery can be stressful—especially when you need to learn the individual needs and habits of each and every animal. Using Doxford you don’t need to worry about remembering everything though. With our note taking and notification platform, see detailed information on your clients—animal or human—and add individual notes to help you remember vaccinations, medical or dietary needs, and any special requirements. This means you’re on top of everything.
And you don’t need to worry about your customers worrying. Leave notes for them, upload photos and let them know how their pet is doing during their stay! So they leave feeling great about your kennels. With automated emails and SMS, you can keep your clients up to date with anything and remind them when to drop off and pick up their pooch. Give them a personal touch that has them making recommendations to their friends.
While Doxford was originally designed for kennels and boarding facilities, it's also a great fit for pet hotels and other pet care businesses. Whether you're running a large-scale resort or a boutique hotel, Doxford's features can help you manage your operations more efficiently and provide better service to your customers.
