Should You Board Your dog or Cat or Hire a Professional Pet Sitter For Your Vacation?
So you are thinking of going on vacation and have to think about what to do with dog or dogs. You call a kennel and get a price and book your dates. All done right? Well did you really think this all through? The price of a kennel could actually cost you more in the long run when you add up all the little extras you have to pay for.
I checked out a few kennels in the Indian Trial area and here is what I found out… They charge for PLAY TIME AND TREATS!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you don’t PAY for it then you don’t get it!!! Your dog will be locked up ALL day.
