This morning was difficult. I give Blue 100 mg of trazadone before I take him for daycare. It’s supposed to take the edge off his fear and anxiety, but you can’t tell a difference. He was not having any part of going to daycare. They don’t put the dogs together, unless they are from the same home or are established friends. They’ve got indoor runs that lead outside. Two different people tried to come get him, and I kept telling them that I needed to walk him back. Finally the lady hhe adores came and took charge. The plan is to stay till 3, but if he is too stressed out or scared, I will get him sooner. It’s a little crazy now with lots of people taking last minute trips before school starts. They have 60 dogs boarding this week!
The kennel lady ended up calling me at 1 and said he refused to get in a kennel- which didn’t shock me. They put him in a kennel room- looks kind of like a bathroom stall, only with a full length glass door. He did better there, but wasn’t happy. He was happy as a clam any time they put him in one of the outdoor runs, but it was so hot today that they didn’t want to leave him out for long. We will try again next Thursday when I have gone back to school and they won’t be so busy. I ended up going to get him a little early. He was a little pouty, but we had a long belly rub session and I think he’s forgiven me.
