Question:

: Hi, we have a 4 month old JRT, and are going on
: vacation in September. Unfortunately it is in the
: Islands so bringing him is not possible!!
: I need to know how awful it will be for him in a
: Kennel for those 8 days, 7 nights???
: If it will make him to depressed I will cancel the
: trip, but am very concerned that it will change him!!
: Ofcourse I am looking for the best place, that pays
: attention to the dogs, and hopefully will walk them too, but please let me know if something like this
: could change him??
: Thank you!!
: Kori G & Zero!

Your dog will be fine while you are away, be sure to take is special Blankie, if he has one and any favorite toys, medications that he is on!!

To be quite honest the owners seem to have a harder time adjusting to leaving their dogs, more so than the dogs do.

Have a great trip and enjoy!
