Dilemma -- Should I take her with me?

Hi all -- I have been browsing this wonderful forum for the last weeks now before and since Emily got home. Tips you all provided have been very very valuable and I always look forward to all new posts and comments. Emily is my first puppy since I was a teenager (long long time ago :D ) and she has been a delight to have around (including extra pounds I lost with all the housebreaking). My question is the following: I will spend the Christmas holiday with my family in Brazil (13 days) and I was wondering what the best option is fo Emily:

(1) take her with me -- 10 hour flight!!! but she will be with me and very well cared for
(2) leave her in a kennel/camp -- she will be almost 5 months old, but I hate to think about her locked up for longer period of times in small spaces even with 3 walks a day....

Any suggestions/comments from experienced doodle owners are appreciated. Also does any one know nice camps/kennels in CT/NY area?

Hi and Welcome !!

Either way is going to be hard on Emily - being couped up in a kennel on a plane by herself, waiting in airports - I'd be petrified she would get lost or miss a flight - too much risk for me. Then you take her to a strange home, with lots of excitement going on for the holidays, then repeat to go back home

For me, as much as I"d miss my sweet girl, I do think I would be finding someone to take care of her or a good kennel to take her too.

Good luck on your decision
