    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

    Thanks, I'll check it out!! :)

      Has anyone ever tried the PetSmart Hotel?? We have over a year to figure this out thankfully, but we have never had to board our dog. However, with all the normally doggy sitters coming to the weding, we need to find an alternate.

      Thanks!

        we got a petsitter to come in daily for our 2 cats. it was $18/day for 1/2 hr, but she probably stayed a bit longer...she left notes every day and gave us a kitty report card at the end.
        the company is NJ Pet Sitters, L.L.P. - We're Animal Lovers! and i think they are throughout nj.

          Our dogs are going to go to a Doggie Spa. They get a full day of play and then have their own rooms at night - but since we have 2 they will share a family room and keep each other company.

          It's not my favorite option, but being in a new city we don't really know that many people yet.

          Anyone in Phoenix area, I'll trade you pet sitting!

            Wow everyone! Thanks for the great ideas... I was going to have a friend who couldn't afford to come to Mexico for our wedding look in on my cat every couple of days (and administer fluids to her as she is a special needs pet), but heck I never even thought of hiring a pro! I did some research and for $15 - $20 a day, I think it's more than worth the piece of mind and not only will they come to administer my cat's fluids, they will also come every day to give her some wet food, change the litter and share some love!

              We had a friend stay at our house. She has let them out before and they knew her so i felt better about leaving them home. We have never left for that long and were worried they wouldn't eat at the Kennel. If we were going to board them we were going to take them to our vet. They were the only reason we came home from Jamaica!!! We would have loved to stay longer!

                We're also having a pet sitter come to our home. We have 2 cats as well, and she will be coming every day for 1/2 hour. It's $15 per day here in PA. I actually found her on one of these 2 sites: Home and National Association of Professional Pet Sitters.

                My kitties will much happier staying at home than being boarded. I honestly don't think that the one would survive - she's a little neurotic, bless her heart

                  We are taking our dog and 2 cats to the Country Club Pet Resort here in Calgary. Is is very appropriately named! The dogs are out playing all day long, sort of like doggie daycare, but with different activities (including swimming if you so choose!). It's really something, and it's a little pricey, but it's so worth it. Our dog loves it so much that once we hit the gravel road on the way out to the farm, she starts crying like she does when she knows she's getting close to the park, and when we get there, she jumps out of the car as soon as we open the door, and runs ahead of us into the reception office!!! The only downside is that we almost feel like she doesn't care that we're leaving!

                  We normally have a friend of mine look in our cats every day when we're away, but she's coming to the wedding, so I think we'll be taking them to the Country Club this time too.

                    fortunately a friend from MI is in between jobs right now and would love a "free" trip to CA! So we have him for a week, then the other 4 days, we'll be sending him to a neighbors, who wants to "test" out having a pet. On our next trip, sadly but true, we'll have to board them, the kennels around here are so clean and great that we're not too worried about it, good luck! :)
