My mum and her dog are very close .shes been away this weekend and he stayed with family where he was well looked after but he obviously missed her (he's fine but just following her around a little more than usual)

She's due to go away for a week in a couple of months time and is worried about leaving him for a week.

Is there anything she can do to prepare him? She's going to take him to the place he will be staying (another family member who adores him but only sees him every 2 weeks or so) - anything else?

I don't think there is really. PIL have gone away and their dog is pining badly despite staying at home with BIL. He's actually coming to me tomorrow in an effort to cheer him up as he loves playing with my boy.

Thanks for the reply. I think he will be pretty happy with the person looking after him, he'll just miss his mum! smile
