Take your dog to the farm while you leave town!! We tried MANY other kennels for our dogs before we fell in love with this one. They give very personal service and each dog actually receives a rating for their behavior. It is not a cheap place, but they take good care of the dogs there. The kennels are large indoor/outdoor runs with the outdoor areas protected from the elements. The dogs are allowed outside in the large yard a couple times a day. They take reservations and will work with you on pick up and drop off times. An excellent place for your friend to stay while you are away.
