Magwart Mine go to supervised "play care" (offered by my vet, who put in huge turf play yards and has extra staff dedicated to this service; they also group the dogs by size and play style). Camp Bow Wow offers a similar service through their franchise.

We drop off 7:30-8AM and pick up by 6PM, and it costs around $16 per dog. I get tired dogs at the end of the day. My dogs are very dog-friendly and absolutely love it. They get to play ball a lot, splash in a kiddie pool and have a big dog party. It's much better than sticking them in a kennel somewhere for day-boarding.

We've been doing play-care all week, since I've got some remodeling work going on. It makes having workmen coming in and out all day a lot easier.

AngelaA6 My dad's owns a carpet cleaning business and I would just put Gunther into either the Garage or in his crate in the office (no carpet in there). We try to do it on warmer days and he has a ton of fans to help dry out the carpet/pads.

Rottendog I just moved into a new house in Dec that still had workmen in and out until April. I crated my two active ones in their bedroom and closed the door. If they had work in the girls' room, then I moved them into my office till the guys were done. If I had a carpet cleaning going on, I would just move their crates to a room that wasn't carpeted and tell the workers to deal with the barking. After all, it is your dog's house too. :-) The carpet cleaners are just visiting!

Cassidy's Mom We just put them in the garage pen, same as any time we leave the house. It only takes between an hour and an hour and a half for Stanley Steemer to move the furniture, clean, and then move the furniture back again, so there's not really any need to board for the day unless you don't have a secure place to keep your dogs during that time. The front door will be open for the duration, so that's an issue in addition to them being underfoot and in the way.

SummerGSDLover When we have the carpet cleaners come, dogs are in crates in garage or I take them up to my dads.

Chip18 Well you need to keep the dogs from being under foot. But the post about outgassing has some merit!
I do remember my high school teacher said his cats caught a respiratory infection from having his carpets cleaned !

Air out the house make sure the carpet is dry! Probably just crank up the heater before they come home will do it.

Gharrissc There is no 'issue'. I was asking what others have done in this situation besides boarding.

Courtney We had work done recently in the house. Crew of 4 guys. My husband set up Rusty's crate in the garage out of the way. It was nice out & he kept the garage door open. Rusty was fine. If he would not been crated he would have been under everyone's feet all day.

GatorBytes I'd be more worried about the off-gassing from the cleaning chemicals
