I don't know much about the boarding but I was not thrilled with the doggie play area and it wasn't even my dog there, I was observing a nice GSD there for playtime and there was about 5 other bigger dogs in there with one very petite person with a water bottle. The problem came with the ball and at one point she had to leash the GSD. It's just not a good idea to have several ball driven dogs in a 10x12 room with one ball to play with. It was a fight waiting to happen. All of the dogs body language was screaming fight..
