Whew - between myself and hubby, we made it work (rotated staying with her all day) Good thing too, seems like all the other dogs in the apartment complex and even the whole neighborhood were losing their minds!
Thanks for all the advice everyone!

Sounds like it's time for a "mental health day," instead of calling in sick. Good luck!

|volcano||Craigslist has alot of regular people trying to make a few bucks dogsitting. You can bring it to someones house and itd cost under 30 bucks for the day.|

Most kennels I've delt with (well everyone I've delt with) are open on Saturdays. And someone is there Sundays cleaning, feeding etc. Maybe not answering the phones.
Calling in "can't make it" today would work. Especially if these things are going off over a prolonged period...
Sounds like a good day for an "out and about"

The amount of things that could go wrong if they go to your place before you can get a hold of them...

Thanks for all the replies! Knew I wasn't crazy to be paranoid about leaving her alone during all that.
The property manager or maintenance person will probably escort the alarm testing folks into our apartment, but they are both not so great with dogs. Our vet doesn't board unfortunately and she's never been to a doggy day care so I'm sure I won't be able to get her in for her first stay same-day, though I guess now is the time to find a boarding kennel for the next time this happens! Friends & family are not an option for a number of reasons unfortunately; the campus where my husband works is strictly animal-free and I work with very small children
I think I will contact the property management co first thing tomorrow AM and find out when exactly this is going to be happening & myself or my husband, depending on time of day, will come home during that timeframe. Sure would be nice if they would give us more than one day's notice over the weekend when everything (kennels, my work, husband's work, property management co.) is closed!

It would be an absolutely terrible idea for SO many reasons, to leave her loose there.
Leave her in the car while you work, board her, send her to doggie daycare, take her to work with yourself or your husband, send her to a friend's house, etc.
But don't leave her there.

My husband is the one doing that work and he will not enter the apartment If there is an unsupervised dog. He loves dogs but is leery of strange ones. Usually he calls the property manager and has them escort him to the area while testing if the owner is not hone and there's a dog so he doesn't have to come back. It's a major inconvenience to have someone test 400 sprinks in a building but not be able to test a couple and have to come back. Take your dog somewhere else for the day.
