Dog Kennels while you Vacation

Recently we added a new member to our family, the sweetest tri colored beagle. Now we want to take a vacation and we are worried about where to keep her as we don't have family that can handle the job. My husband investigated and we came across Club K-9 in Castro Valley. I wanted to be sure that they weren't just caging the animals and walking them periodically... so we went to visit them yesterday. The owners were there and were the ones to show us around, give us a tour as well as giving us an extensive background on themselves. The place was very welcoming and more like a vacation spot for dogs. On the hillside with lots of trees and a breeze, there were fenced in areas where the dogs socialize and get to run around and play. All of our questions were answered and we left our "Ipo" to sample a couple of hours as a trial period. We came back and even though she wasn't jumping for joy (she seemed the shiest out of the bunch) we will be leaving her in their hands. We are marking it up to her never being without us, so I am sure she just needs to adjust, like any young pup :) Does anyone else have other recommendations?
