    Default Dog sitting, what would you prefer...

    Hello all, What would you prefer for a dog pension/day care....

    Sosua: in a kennel(cage) with 20+ other dogs, out for a walk 2-3 times a day. no interaction with care giver
    OR
    in a house environment, with 2-3 other furry friends to play with, free to roam arround the house,
    free access to backyard, walk 2-3-4... times a day when weather permits.

    Same question for Santiago de Los Caballeros area !!!

    Also, how much would you be willing to pay per day? food provided by the doggy owner since they all eat different brand, and package deal for longer stay, or 2 dogs at a time.



    Asking that question because i couldn't find any good place out there except Judy's pet lodge and she seem to be pretty "busy" or full.


    Thank you everyone~!

    Ben

    House environment natch, but all depends on length of time of stay. My guys can do 2-4 days in most any condition where they get food on time and have a soft bed to sleep on. Am always amazed at their resiliency,- they also survive flying in cargo in airplanes. It's hard sometimes to figure out what the dogs need cuz mostly we are projecting our needs on to them.

    Sorry, missed second question,- going rate in Canada 10-15 US$ per day. Two dogs less since they kennel together. Translating to here it would be less due to lower wages and no need to heat kennels. Here is a guess,- 300rd?????

    Personally, for a long stay I would prefer for my dogs to board at someone else's place as long as they get along well with the other dogs and these dogs have all their vaccinations up to date. 300 pesos per day would be a reasonable rate with a discount for multiple dogs.

    Thanks for sharing this one Matilda, I have just 'liked' that page...

    BenDe - good luck, I am sure that there are enough people out there who would love this type of service. Now all we need is for someone down here in PC to do the same!
