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.

It depends on how stable she is. Even though they have both owned the same dog, that is all they have in common. She is a compete stranger.

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.
