summer holidays

GLAD MY PICTURES WORKED.

JUST WONDERING IF ANYONE HAD ANY SUGGESTIONS OF WHAT WE COULD DO WITH CHAOS WHEN WE GO ON HOLIDAY?
I THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD BE BEST FOR MY SISTER TO HAVE HIM DUE TO HIS SEPARATION ANXIETY BUT OTHERS HAVE SAID A KENNEL MITE BE BETTER.
WE GO AWAY IN MARCH SO WANT TO START PREPARING HIM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO HE GETS USD TO US LEAVING HIM AND RETURNING.
BLESS HIM I THINK HE'LL FIND IT HARD

Re: summer holidays

My personal feeling is that, if he is used to your sister's house etc, that he would be better off staying there. Saying that when I looked after my Dad's dog recently, he taught Sasha some wonderful seperation anxiety tricks which we are still struggling with - so if you sister has other dogs, she may not appreciate the lessons!

Because of the way my Dad's dog has behaved away from home (with or without my Dad with him) he has put him in kennels over Christmas and New Year while he is at my sister's - he says he can't bear to deal with his behaviour!! I am so mad at him because it isn't the dog's fault that my Dad has turned him paranoid and anxious!! (Sorry different subject BIG soap box!!!)

My own view is that I couldn't bear putting a dog in kennels but then I have been in the fortunate situation that I haven't had to make that choice.

I really can't help on this one - are you going abroad somewhere where Chaos can't come with you? Would it be possible to have a holiday with Chaos (prob not in name alone knowing him!!)?

Sorry Amanda, I know how you are feeling - we are going through the same sort of thing with Sasha right now and we are at our wits' end trying to make her happy but it just aint happening. It's so hard when you are in the situation with this seperation anxiety and you need to make a decision - either way he is going to miss you, it's just a case of minimising the guilt for you - and that aint easy!!!

I have probably just made it worse haven't I??!!
