Boarding a dog for the first time can be stressful for you as well as your dog. All that you want is that your dog will be taken care of and happy while you are away. I will cover all the things that you need to consider to make sure that happens.
If you need to know how much it is to board a dog or cat, I found 14 companies in Philadelphia, PA that provide that service. I list the cost of cat and dog boarding with the zip code for 11 businesses with a single boarding location. The remaining 3 companies service many different neighborhoods. I also have links to each companies website.
