Default Best Dog Kennels for my nervous dog

My wife and I are in the process of relocating from the Philadelphia area. MY wife is already working in Bham,but I can't join yet. We want to bring our dog down soon, but she would need to go into a kennel on weekends when my wife comes north or has a business trip.
The dog is a 10 yr old Rottie w/ stranger issues who needs TLC. She is daddy's little girl.

Are there reco's out there?

My wife's office/ lodging is in Irondale. Eventually, we are planning to live in the Trussville/Leeds/Moody area.

THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Check out Riverview Animal Clinic on Highway 280. They aren't the cheapest, but they do a good job catering to the individual needs of the dog and to their personality.

Does your dog enjoy the outdoors? I have been taking my dog to an awesome place for the past 2 years when I need to board him. The place is owned by a husband and wife who bought a farm out past Moody and opened a kennel. They take the dogs on nature walks, let them swim in the ponds, let them run and play in fenced in pastures several times a day ...they love dogs and have been so kind with my formerly very skittish rescue dog. He LOVES to go there, and almost doesn't want to come home with me. They take care of any special needs and are the nicest people...plus, they are less expensive than the vet offices where I took him before. Their website is Kellyrunfarm.com. It is about 30 minutes from my house in Homewood, but is worth the extra time to drive there....I hated the thought of my dog being locked in a cage when I was gone, but this place is like a vacation to him. I cannot say enough good things about it.

It has been a few years (I moved away), but I always used Riverview Animal Clinic. They let me take a tour of the facilities so that I felt comfortable (with no advance notice!). They also had an upgrade type package (I believe it was called TLC) so my animals got extra attention. It wasn't expensive. Excellent vet services too. Check them out.

Default Thanks for the info!

We're trying Riverview this week. I visited, got a thorough tour and liked the friendly staff, the TLC extras and the vet services. My fingers are crossed!

Your dog will be in good hands. I used to use them a lot, but it was for my birds and other exotics. Dr. Atlas is among the best veterinarians I have ever known.

In fact, we adopted our cat from Riverview, who was named "Atlas" after Dr. Atlas. If anyone from Riverview reads, dear Atlas is no longer with us due to kidney problems. He was the LOUD Siamese cat.
