My husband and I like to get away for a week-end road trip on occasion. It has become pretty pricey to leave our dog at the doggie motel (vet's boarding), so we worked out a trade with our neighbors.


When we go away, they take care of our dog and when they go away, we do the same for them and take care of their dog. It saves us time and money, plus our dog is much happier staying with people she knows and still being able to go for walks in her own neighborhood. We don't worry about her when we are gone.

To put your loved one in a kennel is like jail. They don't know what they did wrong to be punished. Always a better decision to have them in familiar surroundings with trusted responsible people. Another answer is a friend who enjoys your dog, visits with them and takes them home with them on occasion. Good friends would rather take your dog for a short period than see them in jail.

To save on pet boarding costs, and to be sure our pets are safe and well cared for, my mother and I care for each others' pets. Our dogs get to play with their best friends and we all have a relaxing vacation, knowing we don't have to worry about our babies!
