How much do you pay??
I pay $11 a day at my Vet's as well and I take her food so as not to mess up her diet. And I don't have to worry about her when I board her as I know she is in the safest place possible!

Luckily, my in-laws are generally willing to watch my dog for a week at a time. They have a dog of their own, so Lucy has a playmate for the week. We just have to drive an hour or so to get to their house, but if we are planning to fly we'll just fly out of the airport there instead.

If I have to board her somewhere, I would pay $40/day. It's a doggy daycare run out of the home of a certified behaviorist who is a fellow volunteer at my dog rescue.

I've never heard of boarding for less than 40 bucks a dog a night...11 bucks is awesome! We've never boarded our collies. They have stayed with friends, family, and we've had a pet sitter do overnights at our home.

I only board one of my dogs and it is at a really nice, new huge vet/kennel when I go to my Dads to visit. It is 16.00 a night and it gets cheaper with each additional dog you board. If I boarded three, it would be 16, 15 and 14 a night. Plus they provide the food, but I bring my own food, bedding and toys.
If I ever move I will never find another place as nice as this one!

I pay about $40 a night to board my guy, which is probably too much, but I really like the owners and they seem to adore him. I think their base rate is $35, but they do stupid add-ons that I can't resist tacking on for him (i.e. a night time walk, extra cuddles, extra playtime).

Because I have 4 dogs I pay a house sitter to stay in my home with them. I would never put them in a boarding kennel, however if I had only one or two I would take them to a dog sitter who boards dogs in her home without kennels.

You pay for extra cuddles?

We have agreements with friends and family. We watch theirs when they're out of town and they watch ours when we're out of town. The only thing we pay for is the normal food we'd already pay for.
