I'm going to Alaska for a week in about a month. What on earth should I do with Mia while I'm gone? My dad was going to ask a friend to dog sit but quite frankly I don't think this person is near dog experienced enough to manage Mia. Mia is quite difficult in many ways and you have to stay on top of her or she will get in trouble. So I was going to ask Summer's breeders if they could watch her but it's not exactly looking like they'll be able to because they're going out of town. So... I have a hyper dog who destroys things if left unsupervised and who absolutely dislikes and distrusts strangers. I have only left her alone for a day before and it was pretty much a disaster both times. The people taking care of her couldn't get her to listen to them or put her up. She spent the whole time barking and growling at them. I really can't think of anyone that is dog-savvy enough to handle her. Or maybe I could slowly introduce her to the person who would be watching her? What do those of you with non-stranger friendly dogs do when you have to leave them?
