Dealing With the Quarantine

Post by mustlovedog » Tue, 28 Apr 2009 3:16 am

Hi,
We are moving from NY to Singapore in a few months, and we have a small dog whom we are bringing with us. I think the quarantine is a traumatic event for the dog, and would like to ask people who had done this before for advices on how to minimize the trauma and make the experience less painful for my dog (and myself!). I will definitely visit him every day, but other than that, is there anything else I can do?
Thanks!!!

I would read up on Ceasar Millan so you have a better idea of what energy you are projecting when you do visit your dog. If you think it will be traumatic, then it probably will. When I would go to the facility, I would bring a book and just read for 30 minutes or so next to the kennel, as well as talk and just share space. Visit your dog as often as you can, the last time mine were in quarantine I went 5 times a week. Make sure you are calm and not filled with anxiety or stress -- your dog doesn't need that. No crying, just happy, calm, assertive. It goes by very quickly and it need not be traumatic at all. With any luck I'll be there in August/September with our new addition :)
