We really don't travel a lot, but we are going to Orlando in two weeks. My husband is coming in from overseas and we are going to spend a week at Disney World We are using my in-laws timeshare condo and they don't allow pets so we are having to board Gunner. I would normally take him with us, but in this case, we don't have a choice. Instead of going to the vet's office though, he's going to a dog trainer's facility that does boarding. He willl only be crated for sleeping and meals. The rest of the time, he'll be outside in a huge grassy fenced in area with other friendly dogs to play with. The trainer also owns a doberman so she's familiar with the breed. Do you ever board your dobes, and what type of place do you normally leave them? I hate leaving him at all, but I figure this is better than being locked up in a kennel at the vet's for a week.
