Putting puppy into kennels already?

My Dad is coming for a week, arriving on Tuesday. We've been desperately trying to rehome Poppy in time for his arrival, as we only took her in on an emergency basis and we are really not enjoying having her at this point in our lives (sorry).

My Dad will be a nightmare around her, for reasons I don't want to discuss right now, and we are really stressing about it.

Poppy is still learning to be alone for up to 2 hours at a time, and she sleeps in our bedroom at night still.

My question is, if we took her into the vets for a week for boarding, would it cause any damage to her or longer term separation problems?

It's the only solution we can think of to see us through this next week.

Sounds like you have to choose the lesser of two bad options. If having Dad around the pup is going to be abusive then that is bad. Having pup boarding will also be somewhat traumatic for her. If you cannot find a friend to take her, you'll have to figure out which option will be less bad for her. I'm sorry you are faced with this. You sound like a very caring person.

If you are that unhappy with the dog, please find a no kill rescue to take her...If you cannot find a rescue before your guest arrives then ditto Tess, find a friend to take her and if that doesn't work then find a kennel

pawzaddict, amy took the dog in because the rescue shelter was full and there was nowhere else for it to go.

Amy, put Poppy in the kennel. She'll be fine. You can't go on being so stressed and your stress won't be helping her adjust to her situation. Your dad will just add to your stress and make it worse. The dog will be safe and cared for. Put her in the kennels and have some time out.

Thanks Cornetto, I think I just needed permission that this was an OK thing to do in the circumstances.

Worse still, I went to see a doctor yesterday and have started a programme of fertility treatment with some urgency - I wasn't expecting it to start so soon, but she's put me straight onto daily meds and regular ultrasounds. I just can't cope with everything at the moment.
