What Do You Need in a Pet Care Radio?

It’s important to remember that when someone entrusts their furry best friend to your facility, you’re protecting something of great value. 

Because of this fact, a random radio off the shelf at Best Buy isn’t going to do the trick. You owe it to your valued customers to do your due-diligence and match a quality radio with your specific business needs.

That’s why we carry only the finest Kenwood and Motorola Radios. Simply put, if a radio doesn’t measure up, we don’t sell it. 

And we understand that every pet care facility or kennel isn’t going to have the same needs. That’s why we work to match you up with the radio that will best fit your business and location.

Below we’ve listed some features that we’ve found to be useful for many of the pet care facilities and kennels that we’ve worked with over more than two decades. 

When shopping for a Pet Care Center Radio, there’s a few things you should look out for:

  • Performs well indoors (We recommend a UHF or Digital Band device) 
  • Lightweight
  • Hands free option (This is important when handling large animals)
  • Long battery life
  • Durable
  • Antimicrobial properties to stop the spread of germs
  • Easy-to-use
  • Different channels for staff segmentation 

Let's take a look at a few excellent radios we recommend for your pet care center or kennel.

The Best Radios for Pet Care Centers

Motorola DLR1060

The Motorola DLR1060 is a digital band device. That means it comes with none of the associated FCC Licensing fees that plague most UHF and VHF radios. The US government actually charges you a licensing fee every year to use certain frequencies. Digital radios, however, fall outside its purview. That means a radio like the DLR1060 makes a lot of fiscal sense because it’s going to save you money in the long run.

This is a great device for a large dog kennel, because it features six different channels for optimal segmentation. That means your front office staff won’t be interrupted by janitorial messages and vice versa. What’s more, the management team can have their own dedicated channel for discussing sensitive matters in private. 

This kennel radio has an Indoor range of 300,000 square feet or 20 floors, which is more than enough space to accommodate the largest pet care facilities. 

The Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technology within this device, coupled with 10,000 radio profile ID codes will keep all of your private pet information secure at all times. 

This radio also has a direct call feature. That means you can reach out to one specific worker who’s with a dog that you need information on without bothering the whole staff. 

On the other side of the coin, the DLR1060’s Page All Available feature will let you reach the entire staff in the event of an emergency, such as a bite, a fire, or a dog getting loose. 

The airwaves will be nice and clear, free of loud static interference thanks to the DLR technology which powers this advanced Motorola Radio. 

The lithium-ion battery which powers the DLR1060 has a nice long battery life of up to 14 hours. That means it can handle even the toughest double shift without dying. 

We all know that sometimes dogs can get rowdy. If canine guests of your establishment were to knock the radio from the hands of your staff, you need to make sure that it won’t shatter on the ground. Luckily, this radio comes with military standard hardware which can stand up to extreme temperatures, dust, vibration, and shock. 

On top of that, it’s coated in an antimicrobial substance that prevents the spread of germs, keeping your kennel building nice and safe from harmful bacteria.

Motorola CLS1410

The Motorola CLS1410 has quality built right into its name. CLS stands for Clear, Light, and Simple, and that’s precisely what you’re getting with this amazing kennel radio. 

This is a UHF device, which means that it works great both indoors and outdoors. Of course, for your facility, we’re dealing more with indoor functionality, and this is a radio which is great at maneuvering around interior obstructions. 

Indoor communications have a range of up to 15 floors and 200,000 square feet with the CLS1410. 

It features four channels for segmentation and is super lightweight at only 4.6 ounces. 

This device comes with a long-lasting rechargeable li-ion battery that will keep your staff connected throughout the entire workday. 

The Vibracall alerts which come standard with this device create a vibration when an incoming message is sent, much like a cell phone. That means you won’t spook an animal with sudden noise. 

If you’re worried about your communications being picked up by hobbyists or outside businesses, fear not. This device uses business exclusive frequencies and elimination codes for enhanced privacy. These frequencies eliminate the possibility of crosstalk.

It communicates great in indoor settings for up to 10 floors and is repeater capable if you want to up that number to 20. 

This device also comes with an earpiece and belt clip which make hands free operation a snap.
