Just wondering what you all do when you go away and can't take your dog with you? My dog is a velcro dog, and I am worried that anything we do will be very traumatising for her when we go to Tasmania for a week in January.
We think she would be miserable in a kennel, so we asked my partner's mum if she would come and stay for a week and she said she couldn't, but she might consider having the dog at her place for the week, depending on how her cat reacts to her cat when we visit with the dog in the near future.
The other option is to have someone come in the morning and feed and walk her, and then have someone else do the same thing in the afternoon, but she will still be left alone for most of the day and all night.
My partner doesn't want a professional pet sitter in the house.
I also looked into taking her with us to Tasmania, but for some reason animals have to travel in the cargo area. In Europe where I'm from they allow animals in carriers under the seat in front on domestic flights...
So what do you do??
