Hi All
We are thinking of going away for a few days and im looking for kennels for my 2 cavs.

I live in Blessington, but really not limited to where they are (obviously not Cork or Galway - bit too far of a drive!!). Im a bit baffled by 1 or 2 I have come accross on the internet!!

A dog hotel in Kildare, basically the dogs have free regin and can do what they want - seems a bit chaotic to be honest!! They can sleep in human beds, there are no boundaries at all. free to run around all day and are taken on walks twice a day. Id just never heard of a 'dog hotel', seems a little bit Paris Hilton!!!

And a kennell in Wicklow. Nice big kennels for the dogs, with a run - the outdoor runs all connect so the dogs are all interacting (but seperated by cages ), walked twice a day. To be honest my preference would be the kennel, looks nicer from the pics ( would defo visit beforehand though).

My question is - is it better for Cavs to be around smaller dogs their own size where they can interact with them all the time, no cages, runs etc (dog hotel), or will it be better for them to interact with all types of dogs and have a structured day (kennel)?

I have never left them before and to be honest (this may sound crazy) Its going to be a deciding factor in us even taking holidays!
