    Exactly shannon, my dogs LOVE going to the kennel, heated floors, they are in the same room with unlimited access to an outside fenced 'pen', 2 walks a day...

    Also, $50 a day for the two of them :|

      Has anyone ever hire a house/dog sitter? I really want to b/c my dogs are so much happier at home, but I am nervous about having a stranger in my house. It will be for 6 days. My neighbors said they would feed them, but I want someone to be there through the night. Any suggestions?

I figure if she knows that I come back for her on the day visits she won't bug out on the long stay. Check them out they even have Yappy Hour LOL!
        Yappy Hour how cute! I live about 20 minutes away from Franklinville, that would be a good place for me to check out. Let me know how your dog makes out there. My one dog loves doggie day care, he loves to play with other dogs and run around like a nut. If your dog is the same way she will love it there too.

          I am having trouble finding a place that will atke my dog. She used to fight one of my mom's dogs all the time, so I have to say that and no place will board an aggressive dog. I will not lie about it, b/c I want people to be aware that she occasionally doesn't like other dogs. Usually it's when I am around, she is pretective, but either way, I want people to be aware. I have NO clue what to do with her for 9 days!

            I hire people to stay at my house. I have never had a problem. Maybe ask your friends and see if any of them have friends or family that they trust to do it for you. There is a big university here where I live and if you check the paper there are always college kids that have experience and need the money. Lots of them even have references. You might check the paper and see what's available.

              Hey Debs...

              If I were you I would look around for a better price. My boarding is $22 a day, but I know they give discounts for multiple pets you board with them.

              Also, in the past we have had a pet sitter come and watch our dog in our home, but this was actually more expensive.

              Maybe you can find a college student (Animal Lover) who can help you out.

              Hope you find a better option soon, because $1000 is outrageous.

                  LMAO that's funny that you said that because friends of ours can't come because they can't find someone to watch their kids for a week. They are 'envious' the we can put our 'kids' away.

                    We have a dog and we have done both the at home thing and the boarding. we have a dog walker during the week so we have left Barney with her but he loves going on his "vacation" to the kennel.

                    For all you Toronto/Ontario girls we use "Redwood Pet Resort" in Milton. Basic package is $23 per day and they get 24 hour access to outside - it's family run and they love Barney and Barney loves them!

                    Here's the site - Welcome to Redwood Pet Resort

                      I have a friend who can't travel with us, so I'm going to ask her to stay at my house. She's a little flighty but I know I can trust her to not have any crazy parties or steal things or smoke in the house. I'm sure her boyfriend will stay with her. I used to not be a big fan but he has grown on me.

                      This really has been a huge concern for me!
