I know a couple of people who might appreciate this. My step-daughter just told me about Camp Bow Wow, an alternative to a kennel, of sorts. The kicker is that you can watch your dogs online.
And, yes, I have started the booking process for my dog in November, over the Thanksgiving holiday.
In order to attend camp, your dog has to go through an interview process, which involves introducing the dog to two campers (dogs) and seeing if they get along. If so, then they can stay from 3 hours to a whole day, for free, to make sure they pass the test (ie are not too agressive to get along with the other dogs).
Take a peek, if you want, at the website. Choose a California store that’s still got the dogs out running around with each other. I’m not sure what the night kennels look like.
