So the first owner lives 3 hours away. ... My take on this is that a good visit for an afternoon (or a couple of hours) could be a win all around. And if it isn't, this will not happen frequently, you will recover quickly, etc.

I just don't see the catastrophe in this.

I had asked a prominant trainer in the area, author and on TV too, locally known, and she said to wait 3 months and try it once and see how the dog reacts. IF badly then no more visits, if it does not affect him, then it is okay on occasion. She said it takes about 3 months to acclimate a dog to it's new home, like us moving to a different country, to feel at home.

yes and a no

Yes, only if the owners agreeing seeing the dog on a neutral location

No, if they suspect there is wrongdoing.

Normally I would let them see over a few months so the situation calmed down a little.
