|Nikitta||I just came from having 6 sugeries in 6 months and my poor dogs had to be in a kennel all that time. I recent brought them home. They are fine. You dog will be ok.|

When I was in my 20's I had to leave my dog with my parents for about 7 months when I moved out of state for a job. I did not see my 2 year-old girl during that whole time, but when I got back to pick her up, she immediately ran over and told me how awful all that spoiling had been. She recovered from the ordeal quickly.
Maybe you could see if your friends could make some frequent visits to make sure Kai gets plenty of attention, stimulation, and exercise.

ahh its getting closer, i move out on the 30th of october. Dads just got his rota for next months work and it has allot of 12 hour shifts in it!? this has completely upset me and the worries have started again. He will have at least 2/3 days of a week but for the days he is working kai will be left alone at home. IF my brother comes round for a good 2 hours it will split the 12 hours up.
I have one other option and that would be to give him to my friends while im away for the 8 months, They love kai and kai loves them, they live in a very dog friendly place but im not sure if they would say yes (even tho im sure they'd want too)
Stressing about this move

|Gretchen||Congratulations on your learning opportunity. I think if you feel confident with your dog in your dad's care, your dog will feel that too. Coming back every other weekend will be reassuring. Keep calm and carry on!|

|Switchblade906||I am pretty sure that your doggie will be fine while your gone. As long as you trust your father to take care of him just as you would and keep up the training so when you get back you haven't lost all that time then I don't see a problem with that at all. Plus I know its hard to hear (or in this case read) but you will always have another dog and you might never have this same opportunity again so you have to do what you think is best.|

|mbussinger166||Ya he will be fine. Dogs are very resilient especially if your coming home every other weekend.|
