We have 2 dogs that we need to board over the Easter weekend. Any recommendations. We live in Morrisville, but will be leaving town via I40 going south.

hi, just a thought does your vet do boarding. I did that in MA, and here with my 2 dogs. I felt if they got sick, the vet had the records etc., they also got to be boarded together, and the staff spoiled them because they knew them.. If not why not check for advise with the vet.

Yes. Our vet does do boarding, but we wanted to get a few other recommendations before deciding.

We use Preston Animal Hospital. It is run by Dr. Jason Hammer who was with Kildaire Animal Hospital. It is something to see....when it says hotel for pets it really is. The animal play area as well as sleeping area is pristine condition. He allows the pets from the same family to board together as well.
Here is the link: http://www.prestonpets.com/pethotel_forms.html (broken link).

That's who we have as our vet too. His place IS pretty impressive, but it's also more than we wanted to spend. Heck, I sometimes stay at hotels that are cheaper than the prices he charges.

We board (and use the vet services) at Gentle Care in Cary, right by the intersection of Holly Springs Rd and Tryon Rd. They take superb care of them and have a great play area.

A lot of people recommend Pupsi on Chapel Hill Rd in Cary. We took our dog there once and will NEVER go back. The inside area is clean, but the dogs are in tiny crates. The outside play area is a blacktop parking lot w/ very little shade - really stupid idea for NC summers. When we picked up our dog, he couldn't walk b/c his paws were worn raw from the hot blacktop. They have no vet care onsite, and we picked up some strong breed stereotyping and prejudices from them.

GREAT lady, but do have to say - there is a WEIGHT limit on what she will do. Keeps inside and considers all dogs like family. VERY clean and maintained yard/house. We have a small poodle - rates are $16 per night (including weekends and holidays). Check-in anytime after 7 am, check out no later thatn 8 pm. HER name is Brad and phone number is 662-7534

Thanks for the recommendations everyone. We ended up going with Town & Country in Apex, which was suggested by one of my co-workers. It was either them or our vet (Preston Animal Hospital). Both were about the same price, but Town & Country had huge pens 4'x14', which were double the size of Preston's. Since we wanted to keep both dogs together, we felt that this was a good option. We'll need to board them at least twice more this year, so we'll try one of the other places next time.

PUPSI has been in Cary for 15 years! Clean is affirmative. Tiny crates is NOT. PUPSI trains and housebreaks dogs in addition to everything else dog. They groom, have the 1st and largest dog daycare in the Triangle (3rd in nation), and board. The crates are ONLY for housebreaking dogs. IF you know anything about housebreaking, dogs with the problem have to be started in a small area. Bigger dogs with the problem begin in chain link enclosures (walk in). The Department of Agriculture governs all of the "licensed" kennels in the state. The "stupid idea" you speak of is their rule...not any of the kennels. The pavement is their ideal situation as it is able to be disinfected. Kennels are not allowed to have grass, dirt, woodchips, mulch, etc. as it can not be disinfected. ALL per the DOA!! PUPSI does have a vet that comes to the facility. HOW hot could it have been in March to affect your dogs pads?

Your comments are very malicious and wrong. I don't know if you know anything of value about the owner(s) of PUPSI, but they are extremely knowledgeable regarding canines ... they have definitely done their homework and have helped thousands of humans and canines in this area and across the state. I can't imagine either of them trying to "stereotype" or be prejudice at all regarding dogs. They love them! They have helped a lot of individuals who were on the path of getting rid of their dog. Fortunately, those dogs were spared life in a shelter and probably euthanasia. They ended up in great homes with trained owners!
