We have the most loveable 3 year old English Bulldog. This weekend, for the first time, we will have to put him in the kennel for 2 nights. We usually have family or friends watch him but it's a long weekend here in Canada and everyone is booked up.
I am just heart sick over sending him there. He is so easy going and I know he will be fine, but I think of him all alone at night and it makes me start crying (thank you pregnancy hormones!) I'm not usually this upset over stuff like this - it was my idea in the first place rather than canceling our trip - but I've been so emotional tonight about it.
The place he is going to is really nice and highly recommended - heated floors,AC, individual indoor/outdoor runs ... lots of my friends send their dogs there and the pups love it. They get lots of attention, walks and snuggles but the thought of him being in a cage for the majority of the day is just so sad to me.
I keep telling myself it's just 2 nights, he will be fine, and that I'm just crazy. Have you sent your dog to a boarding kennel? Were they okay? Did they seem sad?
