kennels/being away/panic!

seems I am always asking advice on here! and appreciate all the responses as I am new to having a puppy and just want the best for him.

so we rehomed him, he has been living with us a month and is settling in really well however my partner and myself both work for the same company and have just been told we need to go away on a 10 day course, in 3 weeks time I had previously been informed there was no chance i could go on this course until this time next year, so thought this was a perfect time to get a pup.

I'm in a slight state of panic! no family member can look after him I have seen and contacted a home from home service were Tyler goes and lives in a home environment instead of a kennel and am due to meet these people next week, they are licensed.

I am so upset as I never planned to leave him this soon, will he be distressed or will this effect him in the future ie we are still training him? Will his still remember us? He is generally a lovely little puppy and happy to be with anyone, not scared of noises and ok on his own.

He will be with them for 4 days back with us for 2 and back with them for 4 more days.

I think something i'm just being stupid or worrying to much, anyone been in a similar situation?

When I got my Beamer, we went away for a vacation for 7 days. He was 12 weeks old. I had one of my co-workers, a vet assistant stay at my house and watch him. He did great! So sounds like a good situation for him- even if it is in someone elses home. I do pet sitting on the side when I can, so maybe call your vet and see if they have any options, too.

Puppies actually have a much easier time with this sort of thing than adults. Training happens their whole life and getting used to being around different people can be good for a pup (as long as it's the right people!).

I know how you feel though. I'm VERY picky with who I let my dog around, so I search far and wide for someone who is a trainer or knows dogs well that also boards. It's kinda like an extended training vacation. I would definitely advise you to go a with an in-home boarding place for a pup (for an adult, I don't have a problem with kennels) and to be sure that these folks are not gonna practice force-based handling.

I do a fair amount of board and train in my home with young pups for much longer periods of time.....Pups remember..no worries!
