    Default A Nervous Wreck!!!

    While I am super excited about a vacation( haven't had one in 2 years) I am also very nervous. We will be boarding Mia tomorrow. Terrifying... and on top of that she had to get that stupid Bordatella shot today. The poor thing has has a runny nose, no appetite, and slept all day long. This is her first time away from us and I feel it won't be easy. You should see her bag... it's like I'm dropping off a kid... A kid with allergies. I am scared to death they will forget her benadryl or won't wipe her paws after outside play time. Also a big worry, they don't 24 hour care. It's a 7 to 7 place.

    Signed,
    Worried SICK

    Try to relax...it is a VACATION after all!! Just be sure to call so that you can calm your nerves. Also don't forget to remind them that he can't be out to play in the heat too long if it is warm. I bet he will be fine

    This also worries me ALOT !, I am going to the Cayman Islands in October, I should be happy, but I am already worried about my pups; I only board at places that DO NOT crate/kennel at all; Its more expensive but I like it. You can ask that they be crated, but you have to bring the crate as they dont have any. Its called dogs at camp, and they watch them the first day, to see how they are playing and getting along and are divided into little mini packs for a group sleep at night in a large clean 'stall' type area.

    Home sweet home!! Mia did great according to everyone there. I was however a little pissed when I got there and was told she wasn't in the 10x16 we paid for, but had been placed in a crate because they had other dogs arriving. I paid til 5pm and we show up and noon and she is in a flippin crate!!!

    Did they give you a refund for what you paid for? How is she now since you are at home?

    We didn't get a refund but they knew before I left that I was not happy. She seemed to be ok though. She was in the grooming center with them vs out in the kennel with the other dogs. She sure was excited to get home though. Went straight to our bed and was out like a light.

    Thats exactly why I don't take them to places that crate/kennel. They tell you one thing, but you really have no idea whats going on.

    Vacation was way too short but awesome... Options are really limited around here for boarding. I wanted to have someone stay at the house with her, but she is still pretty destructive if you don't have a constant eye on her. Almost a week has passed now and other than a few accidents she seems like her normal self. True test will be when she goes back for grooming. She has always been so excited to see them. Let 's hope that hasn't changed
