Boarding our Happy

Happy is our rescue Great Pyrenee. We got him on January 31 of this year, and he has adjusted well. We have to go to a wedding June 24 thru June 28th, out of state. Happy is such a free spirit I know he would not do well if we boarded him. But I don’t want him to think we have abandoned him either. Our rural Mail carrier has offered to stop in once a day to check on him and feed him, but I don’t know if that will be enough. We don’t constrain him in any way, and since January 31st he has shown no inclination to leave here. I could use some advice on this issue. We love our dog and want to do what’s right for him.

Boarding
by: Donna

I wouldn't recommend leaving him alone. Anything could happen to him while you are away. Yes, the rural carrier would stop by but that wouldn't be enough. You certainly do not want to leave him outside by himself.

Find a good kennel to board him. Take him for one overnight stay. Do not make a big deal about leaving him there. Just leave. When you return, do greet him, of course.

Then, take him for a two night stay. Do the same thing.

Yes, he won't be happy for the first two stays. The longer he is there, the better he will like it. You will have a better rounded dog knowing you can leave him there. It's tough to see them so sad, but, once he gets to know the staff and realizes how fun it is, he will be just fine.

The next time you need to leave him, he will forgot about you and want to go say hello to the staff.

I hope this helps.
