Looking for some advise at bringing our new puppy (2nd corgi) home. We have to drive 3 hours to pick him up, so round trip we will be gone 7 - 8 hours. We normally only leave Sophie in her kennel for 4 -5 hours at a time. We really don't have anyone to watch her, so I am wondering if we should leave her at home for the 7 - 8 hours or if we should take her along in our van. She rides in a kennel. Would that be appropriate to have her and the puppy ride in the back of the van in their own crates? I was going to introduce them in a neutral place (the school play field down the street from our house) but now I don't know what to do about brining him home. What are your opinions.
I would take her with you. The breeder's home will be a neutral place for Sophie and the ride home with the puppy in a separate kennel will give her time to get used to the new scent.
