I think you guys are vastly underestimating the competency of boarding kennels. When I was working at a boarding kennel, we got several dogs that were bite risks. There were dogs I was not allowed to touch. You know what we did? We let the dog out alone. It's pretty easy, provided the kennel is set up for it. Our kennel was one of the few that did take bite risk dogs, and we got some nasty
dogs. They were all fine being boarded, I was actually surprised because I had thought many would have a much harder time with the environment. The dogs were consistent clients, the kennel and employees were hardly strangers (expect me, I was new, but that's why I wasn't allowed to handle some dogs).
