Best Local Pet Boarder

Companions Dog Resort

Asking a stranger to take care of your dog is a highly emotional decision, which is why the good folks at Companions Dog Resort want you to know that they won't be strangers for long. The owners of this doggie hotel say they chose quality over quantity, which means that their dog limit is about a third the size of other boarding facilities. This limits the number of pets and increases the level of care—something our readers continue to love.

2nd Place: Camp Bow Wow—First off, you've got to love the name. It's hard to argue against the logic that pet boarding should be more like camp and less like a dog motel, and Camp Bow Wow delivers with regular exercise, more socialization and less separation anxiety.

3rd Place: The Cat Doctor—Part veterinary hospital, part a "hotel" for cats, this Ustick Road location includes a staff of almost 20 specialists at Idaho's first (and only) hospital-hotel combo for cats only.
