I am due to be going out tonight and leaving my DC and almost year old puppy with a babysitter. It's actually my friend's husband, so a sensible adult who is used to and likes dogs and I'm just going to her house a five minutes walk away, but its the first time I've attempted to leave Dpup like this. I've left him with my parents before, but he knows them.
Is it a bad idea? He's a cocker spaniel and he's so far always been very friendly, he's not nervous or aggressive. My husband is away a lot and so I do need to be able to leave dpup, or I will never, ever go out. I'm more nervous about leaving him than my children!!
