My dog goes to daycare which I feel good about after a couple years, as it happens to be a daycare attached to her vet clinic.
But in day to day life. You need someone to watch your dog for the day, or only a couple nights that you don’t think need boarding. I do not have siblings. Bummed to say I would not trust my mom with my dog…not completely. She loves dogs but is too scatter brained. I do have a couple friends I would trust. And my Aunt is the person I would trust the most with her.
How comfortable are you leaving your dogs with others? Who are they and did it take a while to gain that trust?
