Dog Sitter Recs?

I know a lot of you have dogs, so I'm wondering what you are planning to do with them for the wedding?  Since anyone who I would think to ask to watch him will be at the wedding, I'm not really sure what to do with him.  I'm guessing we'll have to take him to a kennel for the day/night, and then he'll go back with FFIL for our honeymoon.  So does anyone have a good rec for a dog sitter anywhere between Canton and Detroit?

    We took our dog to the Animal Activity Center in Sterling Heights (near my parents & venue). They board and provide play time. Nelly isn't the best social dog for playing with other dogs. (We didn't have Seamus at that point)

    I would definitely recommend Canine to Five in Detroit. Seamus goes there for daycare & they board. Seamus has a blast and they do a great job there. Rates are very reasonable.

    I second Canine to Five, a friend of mine works there (my MOH actually) and she loves it and has never said a bad word about it.

    I would also call your vet.  A lot of the technicians do pet sitting for some extra cash.  Usually they will take your puppy into their home while you are away.

    Um, me? LOL

    My little sister (she's 12) actually has a pet-sitting business going on, she watches all of the neighbors' pets (dogs, or anything in a cage or tank) regularly. She even has business cards LMAO

    I take the overflow when too many ppl want her to watch dogs- my step-mom has a 2 dog limit on her haha

    If you're interested you can email me, I'll give you my step-mom's #

    Camp Bow Wow in Troy is great!! (there are several in Michigan) I take Lola there for boarding and daycare every now and then. Your dog won't sit in a cage all day. They get to play with other dogs it's own size. Lola has separation anxiety, and she loves it there.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions!  I just realized that I we are going to have to just do someone who will come play with him/take him out at our house...not a camp because Monte is not neutered, which is a requirement (understandably so!) for the boarding places.  That makes things more difficult.

    We are trying to figure this out too. I don't want to take him to anywhere so we'll probably pay someone to house/dog sit (and actually stay at our house). Now it's just finding someone I can trust to take care of the house and actually walk my dog everyday.
