Default Puppy/ dog daycare in Hampton Roads?

Hi! We are about to get our first puppy next weekend, and as always I would rather be prepared than sorry. Does anybody know of a daycare for dogs or puppy playgroup that take a dog on over the weekend? We are going to celebrate my husbands birthday in November and the hotel we booked does not allow dogs, so we need to have the pup taken care for for one night. I have found Coastal boarding as the only place to offer boarding & doggy daycare in the area, but I am not sure if a then 4 month old puppy is ready for this kind of kennel treatment. The internet does not offer me anything nearer than Virginia beach. The pet sitters that sit for you here in the area (NN, Hampton) are asking 50-70 dollars for the sleepover alone. Would be nice if anybody has a hint. Being in the military is one of the problems that you don't have friends or family here to help out.

Have a good one, Sonja

Shipps Corner is the best we've had around here. They have a 2 hour play time each day and our dog gets the queen treatment when we vacation. You can even keep an eye on them with web cam if you choose.

I always used Sterling Meadows. Most people love them...though my cat did wind up sick once after staying there.

This is why I don't want another pet. I am just not home enough - every time we want to go somewhere (which is often) I have to figure out what to do. I think I'll be petless until I am too old to do anything anymore.

I can totally relate ChessieMom but I work from home so I am usually at home most of the day and if we had a refundable hotel booking we would certainly have changed to a pet friendly hotel. However our special rate we booked for this hotel is of course non refundable and they don't offer to take a pet in the room . In my case being too old to go somewhere won't help me as I got ties to Germany and will be gone once a year at least to see my family. I would just like to make sure the dog is then in good hands as opposed to just some cage waiting for us to return. He will be from a shelter so I guess he will have enough of cages for one lifetime... Thanks for the hints, Sonja

Sonja...Shipp's does not have "cages" in the preferential boarding. Check out their website...we are most happy, because "my girl" just doesn't stay with anybody!

Erma: yeah the "cage" situation was more referred to Coastal training which is directly here in Newport News and it just does not appeal to me that much . Their prices are low, but that's about it. Seems the better spots are all just in the Virginia Beach area. Sonja
