Dog boarding
peachychick54 posted:
My dog has separation anxiety and I am worried about boarding her for the weekend when we go on a short trip (3 days) next month. We've never boarded her before, normally we have someone that housesits. She hates being in confined spaces (such as crates) so I'm afraid of how it will affect her. Any advice?
