2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hi! My husky puppy just turned 5 months. We are both super attached to each other but I had to take my son to college so have been gone for 2 weeks. She's with a pet sitter who treats her like her own - keeps her with her, let's her sleep inside her room with her, etc. I asked her if my husband could go see her this week because I miss her SO much but she said that will confuse her. I'm torn... my husband could get her before I get home in 11 days but he'll be working so she'll be in her kennel while he works. Or I keep her with the pet sitter and deal with my emotions of worry, fear that she won't remember me and fear that she'll want to stay with the pet sitter
Any advise? Has anyone left their young puppy for weeks before? Thank you!

I would for certain visit, I think it will be okay. I doubt the puppy will forget you. They never do.

I'm late with my response to this, I read it shortly after you posted and did a "Uh-oh, that doesn't sound right!"
I board with my vet - not so expensive as the local pet sitter and they're with my vet if anything goes wrong. Mary, the Vet, has a standing rule that owners are not allowed in the work area and most work is done on the pets in the "examine room" so it's rare that an owner would need to "go in back".
Before I boarded with her the first time, I asked to see the kennel area and she brought me in the back door, I saw what I needed to and left - just as one of the techs was bringing a dog out to the large run area. I talked to her for a while as she played with the dog - both seemed happy.
All told, I agree with Mary's "no owner" rule, she doesn't need to try to comfort a human when she's trying to treat a dog who's "in trouble" - I understand the emotions at play there. Obviously I have a lot of respect and trust for the lady I entrust with my dogs.
On the other hand, if she had not allowed me to see where they were kenneled while boarded with her or if the tech had become irritated when I was watching her play with one of the boarded dogs - I'd have been looking elsewhere.
For anyone to refuse to allow me to see the conditions in which [n]MY[/b] dogs were going to be kept, or to not allow me to see them while in their care would raise some great big red flags. If your dogs have been boarded a couple of times, they know that you're coming back and a visit as your husband or you are in the area is definitely not inappropriate - granted the pup will probably be excited "Daddy!!!!!!" but this is your dog, not their's and should be maintained by your rules. A boarded pup who's allowed, for example, in her bed (and maybe not in yours) is only going to confuse the issue but also potentially cause an accident if she has dogs of her own.
If I were in your shoes, I'd bring the pup home and let her stay with Daddy, she'll probably be happier in her kennel at home than away from both of you.
'Nuff said, this just doesn't feel right ....
