- Year of past OR future Camino
I walked the camino francis in 2018 and am planning hopefully to walk it when I retire in 3-5 years. I have a question for pet owners who have left their dog home. I was convinced to get a dog last year and my adult daughter assured me should we be available for babysitting him. She is moving and I am not sure about boarding him for 5 weeks, the cost, the dogs physical and mental health. I have boarded him for 5 days once and a weekend and he was fine. Boarding him is $30 a day so the cost I would have to save for and factor in if I do that. I am glad I have him. He's a lovable guy, boarder collie that walks daily with me, but there is no way I would take him on the Camino. Does anyone have any suggestions, or experience in dealing with this issue?
