Is Boarding dogs ok?

Is that an ok thing to do? I have a retriever mix that’s 1 years old and my family are going away for 9 days on a trip in March and we don’t have anyone to watch our dog. We are pretty sure we will end up having to board her but I just am not sure because she never has done that before and she typically doesn’t eat when we are not present and she used to be crate trained but suddenly hated it and she hasn’t been in one since she was 6 months what are your thoughts? She’s a very active dog And loves the outdoors and gets nervous when dogs bark at her but likes barking at other dogs. She plays kinda ruff but loves other dogs. I just don’t want my dog to be super stressed or injured.

This is my dog Bailey
