Upset - Layla can scale a fence (doggy day care)
I am still really upset due to an incident this morning as I dropped off Layla at doggy day care. The usual woman (owner) wasn't there, and the person working seemed overwhelmed that there were three of us dropping off dogs at once.
I said to the woman, "Layla is still very freaked out by other dogs," just to remind her. They have yet to put her in with others, wisely wanting to introduce her slowly.
What does the woman do but take Layla by the leash and put her in a run right up against the yard where most of the (big) dogs are. Of course, all the dogs come to the fence. Layla gets totally freaked out, and the next thing I know, she is scaling the chain link fence and she's over it. Had she not scaled the fence, she would have been stuck in there, terrified.
The woman says, "Hmmm..I wonder where I can put her?"
I said, "Please take her inside. She can stay inside."
I had to get to work.
I'm glad I found out my girl can scale a fence when I was present, but I'm really upset by it and very worried about her now. I'm really disturbed about the judgement of this woman, also. I had just told her Layla is freaky around other dogs -- to place her right up against 7, 8, 9 + dogs was just....not thinking.This is totally different than our usual drop off experience.
I have a call into the owner. I'm not sure she has an escape-proof run with a "roof" on it. Not sure what to do. I thought I had finally found "the" place.
Spending more than a few hours a day in a forum is unhealthy and makes people mean
