As someone who travels with relative frequency and always brings her dog with her, I am used to entrusting virtual strangers with taking care of my dog during the day for daycare. I have to say that in the time I have had him, my dog always leaps when my husband or I come get him. Even if he does enjoy his time, he always runs out like a bullet, happy to get to go home. When we picked him up at Dawn's, he actually ran back in as if to get a last whiff of the most wonderful time he ever had.
Dawn was not only nice, but her love of dogs was readily apparent. I know my dog had the best day ever. I got stuck in snow traffic/accidents and a 2 hour drive back to her took 5 hours, making my arrival to her 2 hours after I had said I would arrive. Not only was she accommodating and reassuring, but she also took great care of my pup.
