Question Is it okay to leave my 4 month old golden retriever in a dog care overnight?

Hi,

Let me introduce my little devil. His name is Nawab and is a super active puppy who loves being around people and dogs. We take him to a dog care on weekends for him to play around with other dogs and swim sometimes. I will be gone for 2 days over this weekend and was thinking of leaving him at the dog care for a day so that he is taken care of properly. Would he be okay staying there at night? I usually leave him with friends when I have to travel and he is okay.

I'm sure he'll be fine. Either at a day care, a boarding kennel, a petsitter's home, or at a friend's house. Puppies are resilient. It's only overnight.

Yeah, if he's comfortable at the daycare and you feel that the facility is well run, I'm sure he'll be fine. Just be aware that kennel cough is really common and it's possible that he can contract it even after receiving the bordetella vaccination. The good news is that it's typically less severe if he's been vaccinated. Honestly he's going to be exposed to kennel cough at some point while in daycare anyway although I hope it doesn't happen until he's a bit older and his immune system is more mature. If you notice him coughing, take him to the vet right away because he'll need antibiotics.

He is a little cutie btw. And he does look like he could be a little rascal.

Thank you for replying. I will keep an eye on him for coughing after he is back. He sure is a devil &#x1f608; chews through almost everything but he is a sweetheart as well.. follows me around the house everywhere.
