I have a lovely, sweet, 7 year old Sheltie, Kenzie. I always had family members come to my home in Northport, LI to puppy sit her, but sadly, my last family member died unexpectedly in March due to Covid. I just went to CA to see my new grandson and hired a woman I've known for years to stay overnight with Kenzie. Kenzie was afraid to go near her harness at all for the 2 days this lady stayed with her; hence, no walks - thank goodness she has a large, fenced yard to run around in and do her business. Luckily, my daughter flew home and took care of her for the rest of my trip. I get titers, not vaccinations for her, except rabies, which I know puts her at a disadvantage with most boarding facilities. I am reluctant to give her the kennel cough vaccine, but would love to hear your comments. Maybe you know of a reliable, kind person who takes Shelties in their home? Or maybe you know an honest, kind person who would come to my home?? I am aware of one young lady who will come to my home, but I find her $75/night a bit steep. However, maybe that is the going rate? I see that she is a sensitive pup and I do not want to upset her in any way - like I feel I did using the woman I used this time. Thanks for any ideas/suggestions, etc.
