Exclamation Boarding and Training Question

Hi all, I am new to these forumns and am hoping for information and support for a long long time.

My husband and I lost our dog on New Years Day '05, he was old and had a full life bringing us joy that will never be forgotten! Well we have finally brought a new angel into our lives, and last month Doogan became a new member of our family. Now we have had the usual trainging issues..you know he uses his pads for a week so you give him another room to explore and bang he uses it like a giant potty and then back to the one room we go.

Anyway he is learning and his training is going fairly well, he is smart but OH SO stubborn. Anyway I am a stay at home wife, and we have no human children. LOL Sadly now a problem has arisen and I need some input. My father is very ill back home in Saskatchewan and being an only child, I am going to go look after him for awhile. He is allergic to animals so Doogan can't come with me, and my husband works all day, and we both agree leaving him at home alone all day is not an option we want to pursue. If we have to we will but we really would prefer not. Anyway sorry for being so long winded but our baby is important to us! I have been doing some searching in the GTA and noticed their are some trainers that provide boarding and training services, and I was wondering if anyone has used any of these and if so what were there experiences. Also if there is any negative information I want to know too. We thought this would be a great idea to continue his trainging, keep him socialized and not lonely, and give us piece of mind. Also we are looking for one that has a home environment as opposed to a kennel feel. Any and all input is encouraged, please help us make the best decision for Doogan, so that his stress is minimized during the time I am gone. Thank you in advance for all your thoughts!!!
