I have to ask because it has always been a dream of mine to have one. It is possible to own/run/operate a boarding facility and make enough $$$ to have the business be your sole source of income? I am in Michigan, and I am sure it varies among state as far as sawdust, hay, and other expense prices go. But I just kind of wanted to get a feel for what other boarding facility owners have experienced. I was brought up to believe that you should find a way to make a living off of what you love to do everyday, so thus it has always been a dream of mine. I just wanted to know the reality of it. Thanks so much. I look forward to your input.
