    -how many staff members they have
    -how much time is spent with each dog
    -do they offer playtime - if not, how are the dogs exercised?
    -do they provide food, toys and bedding, or require you to bring your own
    -are they members of the ABKA (american boarding kennel assoc)?

    and make sure to tour the facilities. Is the fencing sufficient and secure to the ground? What safety measures (double gates, roofed runs) do they have?

    Yep -- I would ask all the questions posted above by kaytris. How much interaction my dog receives would be the burning question for me.

    Are the dogs kept in kennels or are they allowed to play together like at doggie daycare. Is there staff on-site 24/7?

    If today's visit is scheduled, it might not hurt to make another visit "unannounced". I always like to see the "real deal", and make sure that no one has prepared my "tour" for me.
