I don't know where to post this but figure the campers are probably the most likely to be travelling with pets--mods, if you have a better place for my question, please feel free to let me know! We are bringing our wee pup, a Havanese. She'll be almost a year old at the time. She's pretty shy, and pretty spoiled as far as her family goes--I work part time from home so she's used to being with her family. She "crates" well though, and is content so far up to, say, 5-6 hours on her own. We plan to take her with us when we visit Orlando for two weeks in August. We have a villa, and a laid-back plan, so she will spend some time crated in the A/C at the villa, but not more than that 5-6 hour max. Except my kids want to go to Legoland! We will have one day which will be at least 8-10 hours out of the house. I won't leave her that long, would prefer actually to board her somewhere closer to Winter Haven, but would settle for something in Orlando. She's our first dog, and we have ZERO experience with kennels or doggie day cares--just read about kennel cough and that scares me to death, to think she might pick something up. Anyone have any suggestions, specific or general? Legoland has an on-site kennel but it is not staffed/"self serve" which means I guess we get a "locker" for our pup and she's by herself with God knows how many other dogs-in-lockers in an air-conditioned structure. Which sounds God-awful to me, but maybe it's not as bad as it sounds?? Right now our best option seems to be to take her with us and Mom gets to spend 6 hours at Legoland with the kids while Dad explores Winter Haven with the pup. Which, while I know we will enjoy Legoland, *I* personally would enjoy it a lot more with another parent along!
