Speaking of, I was planning to go out of the country for a vacation this month which means my dog Raffy will be left alone at home. I don’t wish to entrust him with my neighbors because they also have their pets and priorities to attend to, so it will be best if I look for a dog boarding facility where he can be safe, fed, and enjoy his stay while I’m out.

There’s an event I have to travel to but I can’t take my dog with me. I’ll have to look into finding a good boarding service for my dog so that I don’t have to worry about him while I’m away.

I like your point about providing the facility with emergency contact information. We’ll be sure to give this to them so that we can know if there is ever a problem at the boarding facility.

I will have to ask my neighbor that lives above me to take care of my dog this May. My wife and I are going to be in Montana, so this is timely advice. Thanks so much for your great expertise and advice!

It was the longest 2 weeks ever for me! But they were fine as they were used to my neighbour.

Sure, something could happen while you’re away but the same can happen when you’re out grocery shopping or you’re at work.

People leave their dogs home every day and they’re fine. They leave them behind for days in the care of families and friends and they’re fine. I’m sure he’ll be fine for 3 days. Go, have yourself a fun trip and enjoy your you time. He’ll be there when you get home and happy to see you again. If you don’t go, you’re choosing him over your grandson and your son or daughter and they deserve to see you too. Safe travels.

He’s a beautiful boy and I feel its better for him to be home in familiar surroundings and have the neighbor pop in and out 3 times a day for feedings and outside time. He lost his Momma (our female Golden 8 mos ago) so he will be alone for 3 days as we fly out to our Grandsons Baptism 800 miles away.. I am having such guilt qualms,, am I doing the right thing?

That sounds like a great way to make sure my cat is taken care of while I’m out of town. I’m going to try that suggestion to take my pet there for a short trial run to make sure my cat will be ok.
