We decided to board our dog at Four Paws when we took a weekend trip "back home." Our dog is getting up there in age (around 13) so we were not sure if she could adjust to being out of a home, around strange people and strange animals. We took her in to walk around and check out the facilities. The options (like the webcam) are great. It was also nice that she was let out not only to relieve herself, but to run around and play.\r
When we came to pick her up, we assumed she would rush up to the gate anxious to see us and go home. In reality, she couldn't care less we were there--we had to get her up off her bed and put the leash on her. She can be a little spoiled, so if it's good enough for her not to leave, it's good enough for your pet.
