dirty ethel rackham Posted November 6, 2012 Share Posted November 6, 2012 We are traveling 3 hours to my sister's farm for Thanksgiving. As we have no one here who can watch our dog (a full-sized labradoodle) while we are away for the day, we plan to take him with us. My sis doesn't allow dogs in her house - her two labs live outside and in the barn (heated and access to fresh water) but do hang out in their garage. I figured my dog would be in the garage with her dogs and outside supervised. He can't be unsupervised because they don't have a fence and he doesn't have the best recall when he is chasing something. Around here, the squirrel goes up the nearest tree (and we have a lot of them.) On the farm, they have a lot more stuff to chase, including deer who like to run away into the corn field. Poor Bear would get lost in that corn field. Our dog loves other dogs and would have a blast. Any ideas on how to make this a relaxing trip for all of us? I don't want to spend my entire day outside, nor do I want the dog to be whining in the garage He loves his people and doesn't like to be separated from us, but he also loves other dogs! If we don't take him, we can't go and I really miss my family as I haven't seen many of them in over a year. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
