So this week was a little different. Since I’m on the soccer team here at UCA, we obviously aren’t always at home with the dogs and for some games we travel this means planning ahead on where we need our dogs to go while we are away. This week it was a 5 day trip for the dogs and the people that watch them.
I always make sure that whenever I leave Kuzco for a longer amount of time that I make him as comfortable as possible because I know he misses me.
Some tips when leaving your pet:
- Make sure they are with someone they know/trust
- Pack their favorite toys/treats
- Always Always Always overpack on food because you’d rather have them have to much than not enough.
- Ask the person how they are doing when you are gone.
The best part about all of it though is being able to see their faces when we pick them up after being gone. It’s almost like they forget who you are for a second then BAM, they are jumping all over you, kissing you, and wagging their tails like crazy.
If you don’t know anyone to watch your pets, the vets here have boarding options where they are well taken care of. The only downside is paying, but atleast you know you leave them with professionals.
