    Haha I meant POOPED! Lol. And she has been boarded 2x before but it has been awhile. She is also used to training 3-5 days a week.

    Did you tell them how much to feed her? I am very specific at the "spa" where my seniors stay as they just have a set amount based on size. That amount would be double what my old guy with low thyroid(on meds) gets. The younger 2 stay at a field training place that also does some boarding but again I bring their food and tell them an amount( I cut them both back 1/2 cup per meal) when boarding.

    That's what I would wonder. A little extra food, an unfamiliar environment, and no exercise...

    One of my dogs will poop anywhere if it's that time of the day--the other hates, hates, hates to poop in a kennel run. He needs to get out and stretch a bit. Otherwise, it can be a loooonnnnnnnnggggggg time.

    Does the boarding facility have a "report card" that includes the Poop on the Poop?

    I told them that she gets 2 cups 2x a day because I previously had trouble keeping weight on her. But she will not be boarded at this particular place again. I like the advice about cutting back at least a 1/2 cup when boarding. Thank you!
