you may want to look into medium sized dogs. They are not too big nor too small but just the right size to keep everyone happy and safe.
Dog boarding - sometimes you need to have your dog boarded while you are away. Maybe your friends or family are too busy or away. Some people have pet sitters, but they are not always available during the holidays. While it's great to take your dog on vacation / trips, sometime you just can't bring them with you. So we've come up with a list of things you will want to ask and do before sending your dog to a boarding facility.
We think it's super important to visit the facility first. You'll want to see how clean it is an how it's maintained. Where are the dogs are kept during the day and at night? What other dogs are at the dog care facility? Do you like the dog handlers? Do they have all the appropriate licenses and training?
For our dog, we prefer a boarding facility that is cage free and has private stalls and a den for the pack. Some friends send their dog to an ranch where the dogs sleep outside like horses do in stalls. Every dog is different, so find a place that works for your and your dog's lifestyle.
Personally, we think it's better if there is a doggy cam so you can log in and see your dog. The online doggy cam should be password protected so not everyone can check in on your dog. It's a nice comfort to check in and see your dog is ok. It's also good to know that the facility is confident in their care facility and don't mind owners checking in.
