So I have to find a place to board our dogs for a week while we go to TX. I have never had to board a dog before so I've been reading posts here. I am worried. The places that I really like we can't afford. There is a cheaper place and a couple say they like the place but on their website it says they have 75to acres for your dog to explore. So my fear is they would let our dogs run loose in an unfenced area and the dogs might run off. They also boast they "offer" pedigree food but you can bring food from home. I thought about having someone come by and keep the dogs here but that'd really expensive. I can't afford 40 + per day for dog boarding. Im so worried about what to do. Guess im venting any suggestions anyone?
