Go take a look before committing your dog to it. I had to write off 3 in my area before finally finding a decent one, and then later I found an even better one - this last one had really spacious indoor kennels that were separated by concrete, with a doggie door to nice individual outdoor areas that were also well covered, so no escaping. If I told you about the terrible places I saw, you wouldn't ever want to leave your dog at all, lol. Just be aware that the regulations for kennels might be pretty lax, and not strictly enforced either, so you want to see these places first. Some are very very nice - you just have to find them. Good luck searching.
