After a month of talking to the doggie day care/kennel we've been using since 2000 (with our old dog) and working with a trainer, we thought everything had been worked out for our humans-only 4-day trip over Labor Day. The walkers were going to learn how to use the Gentle Leader and we had high hopes.
Instead, we learned that he lunged at someone and they decided not to walk him after the first couple days, and brought him to a downstairs room (yes, indoors) for him to relieve himself. I think about how he must have held it until he couldn't hold it any more, and I think about how much we pay this place, and I am steaming mad.
And over the weekend, Biggie pooped in our condo in Vermont. Coincidence, given how he was treated last weekend? I think not.
