I have to go abroad with work for 6 months in 2 months time, my partner is coming with me. We are planning on leaving our dog with my sister (who has a dog and both dogs get on brilliantly and are best pals). My dog loves my sister’s house and is comfortable there, we rent so we have moved around a bit since we got her and my sister’s house has been the constant and where she stays when we go away for weekends etc.
Do you think leaving her for 6 months will have an effect on her? will she be pining while we are gone? Has anyone had an experience with leaving their dog for this long and coming home?
I am looking forward to going in some ways but this is the one thing that is bothering me about going….
I would love to know if dog’s have a concept of time or how their brains work….i amn’t worried about leaving family etc as they know we are coming back but it kills me to think that my doggie might think we have abandoned her…
