Travel with a Special Needs Dog

1 comment

Hey everyone! My dog's name is Burt. He is a 3 1/2 year old Poodle/Yorkie mix. Burt was diagnosed with epilepsy this year. Due to his seizures he had to be put on a medication 2x/day. He hasn't had a seizure in almost 4 months now.

Unfortunately, due to his needs we lost 4 separate boarders. The usual places we tried to board him during vacations said, due to insurance reasons they would not be able to board him. We have a vacation coming up overseas and we cant take Burt with us so my family is flying up from California to take care of him.

I'm wondering if people know of local dog boarding in Seattle that will board him and give him his medication.

 

Thanks and enjoy this picture of my dog Burt!

Hi Phil,

 

Burt looks like a handsome young fella!

It makes me sad to read your difficulty as pet parents to have such a hard time to find a good place for your furry friend while you need to go on vacation.

My first thought is to find a family or another person who are pet-friendly where both of you can help each other with dog-sitting while being away. It's a win-win situation for both of you. It may take time, but I'd highly recommend trying.

 

My second thought is, have you contacted any veterinarian places? When I used to live in New York City, I boarded my two dogs for a few nights at the vet place. It felt safe and they took really good care of the dogs. Veterinarians and technicians are also experts, which may be good because of the medication you give to Burt. If this is not an option, veterinarians may be able to recommend you where to go.

 

Good luck and please let us know if you find a place for him!

Etta

    Many canines coaches are using target sticks which can be conveyed helpfully. The canine is trained to touch and after that to take after the tip of the stick. At the factor when the dogs will unreservedly take after the stick. You can lead the canine anywhere you want it to go, rather than pulling, push, lift, or persuade it. You can center of attention on the canine into the auto, onto a prepping table, over hops. Or into the right role for or stacking. http://dogstrainingtools.com/2018/04/30/target-stick-dog-tricks/

    How do you guys approach flying with an "energetic" puppy? She's not very well-behaved so I'm looking into giving her benadryl. Any suggestions?
