    I couldn't leave Harley for that long, he is a mummy's boy through and through and doesn't like being away from home with out me or my OH there. Bella adapts to any situation really quickly so she could cope as long as there was someone to play with and feed her! But I would miss them both too much! I got teary last time we went away and that was for 6 days! lol

    I suppose we all just have lucky dogs!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    A friend of mine does boarding in her own home out in the Hawksbury area or however you spell it. She offers pick up and delivery back but yes, it does cost.
    I have no idea from what area the poster is from.

    Adelaide Hills Pet Resort dog boarding kennels - “barkingham palace” Adelaide

    that one even has a web cam so you can check on your dog while you're away. I don't know anyone who has actually used them tho.

    I boarded my dog for nearly a month last year. She was fine. I think if I was going for three months - I would drive across country to leave her with friends who have two doggy friends of hers and have managed to live with her successfully while I was away for a few days. Ie they know how to set limits.

    They look like much loved pets.

    Place them into a shelter and they will suddenly be in an unfamiliar environment, usually they will be placed into a pen together, but that not always an option. Living and sleeping in a concrete pen, exercise limited to short periods and the standard of care and socialising limited to the pound attendants other tasks for the day.

    If Button is presently shy and timid and cannot adapt easily to a pound environment, then it's most likely he will fail a temp test and be PTS.

    Vary rarely do multiple dogs from one home stay together when sold.

    This thread does not belong in Dog Rescue in any case. The poster should just bite the bullet and try to rehome her dogs the usual way people try to rehome dogs: advertise.

    I don't think the issue here is temporarily rehoming pets while going on a holiday. I think it's more going on a three month holiday after getting young animals (shouldn't have gotten the dogs if they planned on a holiday, etc), and the fact this owner is happy to surrender them if they can't find a home.

    Seems like the dogs are disposable. If this is the case, I hope the owners don't get any other pets any time soon. If it's not, then that's another thing altogether.

    Well.......wasn't the OP just educated soooo well on other options then the shelter. So friendly and helpful .

    I'm sure I dont need to point out the sarcasm dripping from my post.

    Very soon this forum is going to become just a little meeting place for the regulars. Very soon no new members wishing to seek help for any reason considered not normal or wrong with the group will be automaticly hammered , guilty until proven innocent here.

    sorry , but cant be bothered with the spell check.

    What's more important - holiday or the welfare of the dogs you've adopted into your family? And why can't the OP see that surrendering the dogs would be more traumatic for them than boarding and then taking them back at the end of the holiday.

    Of course - pets are completely disposable commodities - if they're the least bit inconvenient to the lifestyle and you hadn't thought that through before you got them... dripping sarcasm...

    I find it very difficult to be nice to people who flip flop around about pet ownership like this.

    Well to be truthful it sh i ts me to tears also but ffs!! Isnt posting here and on other dog forums better than straight to the pound or just dumped somewhere?

    No matter how much it pees you off....sometimes you have to accept it and think of the bigger picture.

    I think it's ok to let people who don't like something like this say so - as long as it doesn't get ugly. If the person who made the opening post - is upset about it that might be a good thing.

    After all - social pressure is how we get social change. Hopefully for the better. There are times when dogs should be rehomed - but I don't think holidays are it.

    And I hope people think about why they're getting dogs in the first place and the effect it will have on their lives and leave the puppies where they are instead of giving them a temporary home, and then deciding they can't deal and sending them back when they're no longer the least bit puppy cute and will have a much harder time finding new homes...

    We are coming into the worst time of year for Shelters. Interestingly - I adopted my puppy in the first week of December. But that was after I'd been looking for about a year and a half.
