We have a fairly new puppy, and we're looking to be going away on vacation in November and of course we now need to deal with having someone take care of our puppy. I'm leaning to using PetSmart's Pet Hotel Has anyone used this, or experience with placing a pet in a kennel for a period of time? My wife's concerned it will be too traumatic and/or risking some sort of illness. Any thoughts on this being a bad or good idea? Ideally we should have waited until after our vacation to get the puppy, but we had an opportunity to get this puppy very inexpensively and so we opted for it now instead of Christmas (plus we figure house breaking in the summer is better then the dead of winter for us and the puppy).
