A3: Yes! Dogs do tend to pick up on owner’s tensions, worries and stress levels! Most times we find people will say that their dogs may fret, however the tension and fretting is mostly on the owner’s part! We commonly find that once the owner leaves and their dog comes into the complex, hears other dogs barking and smells all new and exciting smells, it soon forgets that it was worried (mainly it’s owner’s anxiety!).
As we move closer to its accommodation/garden area, the dog will start to pull on lead and get really excited as it begins to adapt to its home away from home.
It’s pace will quicken once it hears and sees other dogs in surrounding garden areas. It will be so excited to get into its own area as quickly as possible and to meet it’s new friend! Tail will be wagging at a million miles an hour! In the meantime, dog’s poor owner has to sit in their car, or on a plane for hours! (I do believe that their dog got the better deal!!!) P.S. NO, we only board dogs not humans!
