A: The number of dogs that can be boarded or housed in a facility depends on a variety of factors, including the size and layout of the facility, the qualifications and experience of the staff, and the applicable regulations and zoning laws in the jurisdiction where the facility is located.

In California, for example, boarding kennels are regulated by the California Department of Consumer Affairs, and must comply with specific regulations regarding the size of the facility, the number and size of the kennels, and the requirements for sanitation, ventilation, and safety. The maximum number of dogs that can be housed in a kennel at any given time is determined by the size of the kennel, the amount of space available for each dog, and the capacity of the staff to provide adequate care and supervision.

Other states may have different regulations and guidelines governing the number of dogs that can be housed in a facility, and it's important to consult the relevant state and local authorities to determine the specific requirements in your area.

If you're interested in opening or operating a boarding facility, it is recommended that you consult with a licensed attorney who has experience in business and regulatory law, and can help you navigate the legal and regulatory requirements for your specific location.
