How much should I pay my neighbor to take care of my dog for a week?
The dog will be staying in my house,but my neighbor will be walking & feeding my dog in the early morning and afternoon.Biarding facilities are out of the question since I don't want my dog to be stressed out since the last time I took him to a dog boarding facility he did not eat for three days and the workers said that my dog was trembling in fear everytime it heard a bark.I live in northern California and boarding facilities here charge between $16-$26 dollars per day.

It is a good thing that your neighbor is ready to feed to your dog in your absence. i don't think so that they are ready to do this for the sake of money but yes, if you think that you should pay them then it is totally your choice.
If you afford and easily pay then i think you can pay 150 dollar for week. He will be happy and take extra care of your dog.otherwise you can pay with the average of 16 dollar.
I think it all depends on number of
factors such as the relationship between you and your neighbour as well the
level of comfort you feel while handling of your pet. Does your dog have any
special needs? Do you regularly exchange favors with little or no payment? After
all they are actually doing more for my dog than the boarding facility would.
