Where do you board your dog(s)?

I'm planning ahead for our cruise at the end of August.  : )  I think the monstas will be covered; we usually have a sitter drop by for a bit during the day.  But that would just piss Nandi off if she didn't get playtime.  And I don't know if I'm comfortable having a stranger stay in our home to take care of everyone. 

ETA:  Remember she's a pit, which means [insert sarcasm] she's significantly more likely to have her brain suddenly start growing and get too big for her skull.  This means that it's 98.3% guaranteed she'll suddenly snap and start eating people toes. [end sarcasm]  Thus, we need a place that's pittie friendly.

Re: Where do you board your dog(s)?

  • We have only boarded once here, and took her to Petsmart (we loved the one by our house in San Diego) though I have heard really good things about Club K9...not sure their breed policy, but I want to say they accept all breeds, and dogs just have to pass a little "test" first. Which Nandi would, no problem.

    Club K-9 is awesome!  Blue stayed there and had a great time.

    What I was most impressed was that an employee stays overnight, which most places don't offer.  And it's huge and super clean.

    Oh, the staying overnight thing is huge for me!  I'll definitely check them out.  

  • : (  I just called Club K-9, and they'll accept her.  But, she'd have to do the individual boarding rather than the social boarding.  They'd play with her and take her out, but she wouldn't be able to interact with the other dogs.  I'll keep them in mind as a backup, though.

  • We recently boarded our dog at Townhouse Pet Care (sorry - my mac won't let me make it click - http://www.townhousepetcare.com/) and really liked it. It's not a fancy facility, but when we picked Bridger up, the staff genuinely seemed to enjoy having him there. We even got a card with pictures of the staff playing with him in the mail a few weeks after he stayed there. Oh, and they're not too expensive either (we ended up boarding for one night, having one playtime and having a full grooming the next day so we could pick him up later - I think it was about $60 for everything). We were pretty impressed and plan on using them again.

    Wendy and Bob only take 7 dogs per night to give full attention and adequate exercise on their farm.  They have a ton of space. I have a chow/lab and a crazy boxer/pit and they are both happy there. Reasonably priced as well. The drive to their property is also very pretty.

    Virginia Woof told me they'd have to do a personality/temperment assessment or something. Yeah, right. Scotti would have failed that in a heartbeat.

    You'd be surprised.  They don't care whether a dog is crazy or not, they just have to be social and able to play well with the other dogs without being overly aggressive. 

    And most places that offer a daycare/boarding should have temperment testing to be sure your dog can manage for several hours or days there.

    Yep!  Nandi is always like "WOOHOOOOO!  Someone just looked at me!  I should DEFINITELY try to jump up and cover them in kisses!"  or "YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY there's a dog!  I want to PLAY!"  She's very well behaved most of the time, but at daycare she's BSC.

    There's a young female pittie girl there that is SOO cute that is just like that!  Everyone loves her there and she plays so well with everybody.  I bet Nandie would do great there with all the spunky dogs.

    When I say my dog is crazy, I mean he's ready-to-kill-another-dog-kinda crazy. This was despite having great puppy training at the shelter (he was valedictorian of his class!) and having an aggressive/reactive dog training. He's sweet and tender with humans after he gets used to them but dogs (other than his brother)? Forget it.

  • My friend, and a former Knottie, owns City of Noses.  She boards in her house so the dogs get a lot of attention and it's kind of like being home for them, too.  Not sure what her policy is on pits.  Our dog LOVES to go there and comes home wiped out at the end of just a couple of days, and that's saying a lot for our hyperactive border collie/greyhound mix.

    Thank you!  Her site looks fabulous and she sounds great!  I sent her an e-mail, and have my fingers crossed that she's cool with having a pittie.  : )
