    The pupper in the cargo is treated completely differently from other luggage from what I’ve seen. You drop off the pup at a different location and have an opportunity to say goodbye. They transport the kennel carefully; ie not in the same tug train with all the luggage... They load the kennels last, and the flight attendant comes to your seat and tells you that your pup is onboard and safe. They unload the kennels first and you pick the pupper up at a different location than checked baggage.

    I agree with you, but I'm surprised that dogs that I assume are very well trained need choke collars. Maybe someone can explain.
    I'm sure dogs can get PTSD too--those dogs need their emotional support humans.

    I wonder how long it will take for someone to start selling fake war dog vests, or maybe someone does already. Don't be surprised if you see a miniature poodle wearing one.

    This! Some dogs have terrible separation anxiety and totally trash the house when the owner leaves them alone there... or trashes wherever they are being cared for while owner travels. Rather than deal with that properly through better training, they just take the dog EVERYWHERE...
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Mine likes to locate and lick rx bar wrappers. He's a yudge fan of maple sea salt while I like mango pineapple.

    How do you train a dog not to do bad stuff if they only do it when you're gone?

    Completely agree. I would have a really hard time doing that out of fear my Malamute would stroke out.

    I've never had the need to fly with my dogs. House sitter or kennel works great.

    Well, I would like to move next year when Mrs L2S retires and was thinking Yurp or Canada. Not flying the pups makes my decision difficult. Guess I am driving to BC.

    The choke type collars are effective for correcting behavior if used correctly and not used for punishment although I’ve never used one on my dog the proper techniques and use has been taught at Avalanche dog schools and they already have “war dog “ vests out there

    It seems worth trying....

    I’ve been unsuccessful in finding a truly remote shock collar. I just have to resign myself to watching my dogs destroy something from afar and realize I’m helpless to stop it. Probably therapeutic in some way....
    focus.

    Doesn't seem like that will work too well for separation anxiety.

    When the triggering event
    is
    the departure of the dog's person --


    'ACE' had been neglected - Just left alone in an outdoor kennel...
    he was eighteen months when he came to us --

    when I was there - or in his crate in the car he was fine --
    The day I left him in his crate in the house for twelve minutes ,

    it took me four hours to pick-up the destruction he caused After he destroyed the crate and tried to break out of the house through the kitchen window...

    Poor , wonderful , 'Ace' ...

    absolutely 'separation anxiety' :
    a broken soul

    Get out there and do stuff!

    Enjoy life to the fullest!!

    See you on the slopes! "

    I was talking about dogs doing bad shit when you’re gone. Like tearing up a library book. Mine usually do it several hours in, and it’s just boredom.

    My one dog does get crazy separation anxiety, just like ACE above. That’s almost 100% of the reason why I have 2 dogs now. He’s chill with his sister around.

    The difference is exactly what I reference above. “Separation anxiety” is my dog doing a cool $2,500 worth of damage to my car interior upon being left alone in the car for 10 minutes.

    Being bored and chewing shit up is spreading the stack of library books that are on the table to be returned into little soggy pulpy pieces all over the floor in the living room and dining room. 3 hours in to a 7 hour stretch. Slowly, quietly, deliberately, like a fucking technician, while I watch from an hour away.
    focus.

    No land line phone at home? Call that boy up and give him a scolding right away.

    I yell at them through the camera intercom. Something about the voice being distorted on the speaker or their knowledge that I’m not actually there and can not do shit to them makes them completely ignore me.
