I’m looking for recommendations on a dog boarding facility. I have a high drive hunting dog and I don’t feel like the facilities in the city are adequate. I’m willing to drive some distance for a place with glowing recommendation. 
Thanks

Borded our dogs once. Fantastic reviews. Dogs were mishandled and traumatized.  

Never again.  Found a house/dog sitter. Fantastic.

That's my concern. But maybe the right facility can do a better job than a kid off Rover?

Another option could be Two by Four in Oyster Bay on Long Island.  Dogs are socialized during the day so that may or may not work for your pup.  If he/she is high energy, this might be a much better option than having him in a kennel all day/night like many other facilities.

Thanks. That’s kinda my problem with the city facilities. They operate more like dog spas with socialization time. I personally see no value in letting your dog play with other dogs if you properly socialized them during the relevant developmental window. In fact it can actually be a hindrance.

This place is maybe 2.5 hours from Manhattan.  http://www.davesgundogtraining.com/index.html

I have used him for two of my Brittanies, and if I ever get another hunting dog, Dave will be doing the training.   I left my dog there for 6 weeks and he came back, mean (in a good way) and lean, and ready to hunt!   I highly recommend him and his facilities are sparkling clean and spacious.   As a bonus, his wife is a superb pet portrait photographer.

Understood.  I suppose I consider the socialization aspect a way for the dog to burn off energy.  Unfortunately here on LI, many facilities do not turn the dogs out during the day which has been a problem for my Airedale.

It’s a slippery slope. You let your dog play with other dogs and then one day you find yourself adding almond milk to your coffee. Next thing you know you start to believe that healthcare should be a right and that undocumented immigrants should be treated with dignity. Slippery slope, tread lightly.

You city people are weird!

You can’t leave the mutt home with the doggy door open? Put out a big bowl of food and a pale of water? I think my dog looks forward to me leaving, then he doesn’t have to share the couch.
