mu hubby wants to take bentley and daisy over to his moms house for xmas dinner tonight- yes she has met her "grandbabies" is what she calls them..lol but i dont want to just because its like taking over a couple twins . you know when you cant sit and relax because your constantly worried they are going to pee on the floor or chew something up.. they arent crated- so i cant keep them in there. we have taken bentley over to her house before and he was good- we made him lay on the couch and he did pretty good but i still worried at that time he would pee on her floor. is it not rigth to bring over your dogs to ppls houses that dont have dogs? and im only sure shes nice to our dogs because she knows how much they mean to her son-
and i just dont want to take bentley ( the more behaved one) then daisy is left alone. we are only going to be gone about 4 hours. should they just be left at home? or take them to grandmas? no she didnt say bring the "kids" hubby kinda forces them on her whne she is here. and bentley is the barker but after thanksgiving and the water bottle he was a little gentle men and our dinner was perfect-
what should i do? ya hubby can sit there and relax and eat but i would be contstantly worring they will go potty on her floor- not benltey but daisy- no one wants a dog to come and pee on their carpets. but i feel bad to leave them- what should i do??
I personally would not take the dogs on this visit. I would be worried the whole time, just like you, that they might pee on the floor or carpet. It is only for 4 hours, I would leave them home together, they have each other for company and go and relax and enjoy yourself. If hubby is more or less forcing the dogs on their grandma at your house, she may not feel very comfortable having them at her own house. Just my opinion.
believe me i know- he in my opion shoves them on her and i dont think she really cares to much for it. she is nice to them of coarse and says oh come see grandma- ( i married her son 10 years ago, i had all three of my daughters from before and i have my tubes tied and ken doesnt have any kids so these are like his kids lol silly but true) yes i do think i will be leaving them at home, and i do tell him its stressful for me because im the one that cant relax im having to be on top of the dogs to make sure they arent peeing on the floor or into anything-
Dogs are always welcome in my home, but not dogs that haven't been housebroke! Even if penned in the kitchen where no harm is done to the floor, it's just too much of a hassle, especially during a holiday, to have to worry about that. The dogs will probably be more comfortable and relaxed at home, anyway.
I hate it when someone brings a dog that is not house broken into my home. If it's just an accident, or the dog is frightened at first, then that's ok. But I had some bring their male with them who marked all over my house. It's just rude.
i would leave both dogs at home. you will not be able to relax and enjoy yourself, if you are spending all your time there, worried about the dog doing something wrong. you are not going to be gone that long, put the tv on animal planet for your babies, and go have a good time !
Like most replies, I agree that if they're not housebroken it will just be too stressful for you and also for your inlaws! We take our 5 month old puppy to our inlaws every sunday, and now he gets so excited as soon as we pull up! But I have to admit the first month or so was stressful. I spent the whole time in the 'rec room' with him following his every move to be sure he didn't have an accident. Once they're potty trained though I think it'd be great to take them. Our family gets upset with us now when we don't bring him and its great for socializing your pup!
