Today, was a very big day. Not only did I send my youngest off to Kindergarten, I also dropped Otto off with our trainer for a six week intro to birds/guns course. It will be very quiet on the homefront for awhile...
Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone here has left their dog at a kennel for an extended period of time? I'm just wondering what it will be like when we bring him home after having lived the kennel life. Will he have forgotten his "house manners"? Or will he slide right back into the swing of things around here?
I miss the little bugger already. *sigh*
Our first GSP Poge, we boarded him at a kennel when we would travel and couldnt take him. Sometimes when picking Poge up from the kennel , he would smell like pee and we would give him a bath. Once in our house Poge would blend right back into the routine. He would sleep solid in his dog bed in our bedroom and be glad he was back home. No problem with him doing his business in the house. Poge was very good GSP and an excellent hunting dog!!!
Oh, this is so good to hear. I sent him away with the house training thing finally 100% and was hoping it wouldn't take more than a reminder or two to get him back on track when he returns. And he's our only dog (for the moment), so no issues on the pack front.
