Moose and the dog sitter

Home » Blog » Dog Photographer » Moose and the dog sitter

I am a dog sitter and when we go on vacation to Hilton Head like we did last week and take Moose and Willow with us, we have to hire a dog sitter. No joke! This dog sitter hires a dog sitter WHEN the dogs are on vacation WITH US! And that’s because of our crazy Moose.

Sunrise on the beach in Hilton Head. Moose is a happy dog: on the beach, off-leash and he has a tennis ball.

We were hoping that his separation anxiety would be better this trip but no, he didn’t like being left in the house alone. He isn’t destructive but it stresses him out. I’d love to have a doggie cam set up to see what he does but actually when I think about it, that might break my heart to seem him stressed.

Moose loved his off leash time on the beach. Following is the sequence of him running to get his tennis ball.

It's a happy Moose!

He got it!

So, Moose didn’t get left alone very much in the house. Luckily (or not so luckily for me), I’d planned to do quite a bit of work while we were on vacation. I have a ton of back office type of work that I need to catch up on so I’d planned to knock some of it out on vacation… and I did. Moose was happy to have me around.

We did plan to go out to dinner a couple of nights while we were there so the dog sitter came and stayed with him. He’s a funny dog. As soon as she got there and we’d go to leave, he followed her back into the house, perfectly content that we were leaving as long as someone was there with him.

Yay for the dog sitter and for her helping us and The Moose while we were on vacation! Do your dogs require special attention or treatment when you’re on vacation?
