This may sound like an odd question but I will be dog sitting for a friend for 2 weeks. The dog is 8 months old, very active, and hates parting with his owners.
Would it be best for me to go meet the dog in his own home and then take him with me? Or would it be better for his owner to come to my house with the dog for a bit and then leave?
I’m just wondering what dog owners think would be easiest for the dog to handle. I see pros and cons to both. I don’t want the dog to think I stole him away, but I also don’t want him to think his owner came to my house and abandoned him or forgot him. Any thoughts on the psychological/behavioral side of things here?
