Boarding a dog?

Does anyone have any recommendations for a place to board our dog (if anything is still available) while we are there Thanksgiving week? I'm having a hard time leaving her behind this time :) Thanks!

There are 4 of them that I know about and they are The Barker Lounge, Barks and Recreation, Just Fer Paws, and Loving Care Kennels. Your pets will probably need their shot records and proof of it. If for some reason these are booked then you may want to contact a few vet hospitals and see if they offer nightly boarding. I'm assuming you already have a hotel. If not there are lots of pet friendly hotels in the area. Some restaurants with patios allow them. Hope this info helps and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving in The Smokies.

Thanks Goldie! We are staying at a cabin in Eagles Ridge Resort. My daughter in law is allergic to dogs so I had planned on just getting another one bedroom cabin and my husband and I would stay there with my dog, but time got away from me and all the pet friendly cabins in that resort are booked. Thanks for the suggestions. I will check them out tomorrow. We are all so excited. It's the first time taking my 8 month old grandson to Tennessee.

I just know there will be a lot of great memories to be made. It's exciting taking our granddaughter to the place we love so much. We have another coming in Jan. and I can't wait to take her.

I forgot to mention there is a place we passed on Wears Valley Rd called K-9 Cottages. I think it's a new kennel. I haven't seen it before so you may want to check them out.

I know it is hard to leave pets behind, but wouldn't it be better to board your pet with your vet (if possible) in surroundings that are familiar to your pet.
