I know a lot of people leave their dogs in kennels, but mine could never handle that environment! I have been able to find people to stay at my house with them. I used to leave them with my breeder's mom who lives close by, but she has gotten older and it has become too much for her to handle (she now has 6 of her own too). I did find someone on Craigslist to babysit them while we were in Cape Cod and needed a babysitter for the evening. I would be careful about bringing someone into your home without doing all the proper checks on them. There are two services that I have not used yet, but have come highly recommended to me. They are sittercity.com and care.com. They charge a fee, but do background checks, etc. I may be signing up since my regular sitter got a job in NY training seeing eye dogs and I will be losing her.
