I'm going out of town Friday and will have to board Cody for about 5 days. While I trust the vet office where he will be staying since my roommate works there, but will be out of town as well, and I have met many of the other staff members on numerous occasion and quite a few of them have basenji experience, I'm still really nervous. Cody's never been boarded before. I did try to find a pet-sitter, but ultimately I think he will be safer being boarded at the vet office as none of the people I talked to had ever dealt with difficult breeds.
Although, like I said, many of them have basenji experience, I still stressed the fact that he will bolt out of any open door, will climb and jump fences, and is extremely hard to catch if he does escape. I'm taking his food, he knows a few of the people that will be working in the kennels while he is there, and although they don't normally allow it they are going to let him have his bed while he is there.
I'm a little worried because he is so easily stressed out.
Any suggestions on how to make this go smoothly or anything else?
