Default Pet Boarding/Sitting

One of the pains of not having family close by anymore is not having someone to watch or let the dogs out while we are out of town or want to get away for a short period of time. As such we have to ask friends or neighbors, which can be burdensome to them and at the end of the day I hate asking.

I was wanting to know if anybody has used Rover.com or a boarding service such as camp bow wow? If so how was your experience? Would you use it again? I know it sounds over the top, but both the wife and I look at our dogs as our children and hate thinking of something happening to them or someone we dont know or trust neglecting them. Plus the issue I have with a boarding place is Harvey our English Bulldog has to be told to settle down sometimes when there is too much excitement when he is playing, I would hate for him to get overheated or something happen because he is playing too much with other dogs...gotta remember he is no Collie

I used dogvacay or rover.com 2 months ago as my puppy was 11 weeks old and I was uncomfortable boarding her in a regular boarding facility like camp bow wow (though my mom uses bow wow regularly for her dog in NJ). I did some research and found a lady close by who worked from home and had 3 pugs and a fenced in backyard. There were numerous positive reviews/repeat customers so I took Sydney over for a visit and she got along great with the lady and her 3 pugs. She even took pictures daily throughout the week and sent me updates (without me asking).

I will definitely be using her again and preferred Sydney in a regular home vs a boarding facility.

We use the Camp Bow Wow here... very nice experience, have used multiple times, and would keep going back. We love that they have the cameras where we can check in while we're away. Their staff seems very well trained and seems to do a nice job when the dogs are all together in the play areas (usually separated into 2-3 different areas by size). They keep a calm hands off approach until some behavior needs to be corrected. And we really like that they don't turn away dogs based on breed unless local ordinances require them to. So they aren't afraid of pits.

All vaccinations have to be current and I think they do a "socialization" check before allowing your dog to be kept at their facility. So you should schedule for your bulldog to meet with them ahead of your time away.

I'm sure facilities differ, but our experience locally with them is something I would have no problems recommending to other dog owners. I would say it's worth a trip to meet their crew, you don't have to board with them after that if you don't want to.
