Dear Dr. Alice, We are afraid to go on vacation because we don’t want to leave Charlie, our dog, in a boarding kennel. Any suggestions? Sincerely, Closed In

 

Dear Closed In,
Well, if you ask friends and look at reviews on the internet, you may find a good boarding place. However, it may cost a pretty penny. More and more hotels and Air BnB places are allowing pets. You need to decide how you will really relax and have a good time. You want to decrease stress and not add stress. Remember that when you leave your pooch with someone else, they may have a vacation, too! Good luck!
