I think it depends on the area. The kennel we have been looking at locally is 17.00 per day, and they come highly recommended by our trainer. Another of our friends uses a dog walker when they are gone for the day or overnight, and they charge 15 per walk, and she has two dogs. You said it’s in a private home, is it a friend that is watching them? I would maybe call around to some kennels in the area where you want to board and see what the average price looks like.

I leave my little Shih Tzu in a private home when we go away. She charges $35/day. She’s a little nuts but she takes good care of him. I get some pictures and a report card when I pick him up. LOL. When she watched him for 10 days while we were in Miami for our daughter’s wedding a few months ago, she would send me videos of Baxter every few days. That was wonderful. I missed him so much.

When we board our dog we pay about $30 per night.

But it’s a vet clinic that does boarding for the pets they see. There’s a big fenced in area for her to run around all day, they provide the food and bathe her before we pick her up. And I like knowing if anything were to happen they are a vet clinic first and foremost.

I’m really not so sure of having your pets stay at a  home of someone you found online? Why not just research boarding kennels? Maybe ask your venue/vendors for recos?

I pay $35 a night to board our dog.  The kennel has a large outdoor area and my dog is only in her cage/kennel for mealtimes and to sleep at night.  The entire rest of the day is supervised playtime with all the other dogs.
