I returned yesterday from a week long trip back home for the holidays and picked up my dogs from the kennel. I'm also feeling really guilty, my youngest dog is not eating full meals and she appears to be having bad dreams and is clingy, more so than usual.

She was sound asleep on the couch and started yipping, her paws were moving and she was shaking a bit, I walked over and woke her up and she had the look of whoa! everything is alright mom's here and I'm at home, I sat with her and just cuddled a bit. She's stayed at this kennel many times before and she's always been happy and had no issues, I'm wondering if some other dog scared her? My lab is fine and seems happy to be home and both seem healthy Any ideas?

Kenneling is almost always a bit of a trauma...more so for some. Give her time and go about as normal. DO NOT try to give extra comfort, you'll just reinforce her negative feelings. A couple of days from now, when she realizes everything is normal again, she will be too.
