Katie: I'm leaving my dogs for a week will they be okay?
I'm going to Las Vegas for a week I have 2 dogs and toy poodle and miniature Maltese and I'm feeling really sad leaving my poodle for a whole week because I think he has separation anxiety because if I leave for five minutes and come back you can hear him crying outside and then when I go in they jumps all over me and bark and I have my neighbor coming and checking them daily but I'm really scared.

I don't want him to forget me or run away. It's more my toy poodle I'm worried about he has ran away like 3 times when I just leave to the store thankfully I always find him and when I take him in the car and go to a store when I go in and my daughter stays with him hes cries like crazy and goes back and forth even though he can see me in the store. I just want him to be okay? Will he? Will he try and run away?

You'd better ask somebody to take care of them. Maybe they would feel better.

As long as you have somebody watching them they will be fine and no they won't forget you my mom had to rehome one of her dogs when we were kids and didn't see him till a yr later and he still remembered her so as long as the person watching them keeps them on a leash so they can't run off they will be fine

You are the reason he is like that. You have not applied enough rules, boundaries, limitations, exercise, training and socialization. He is just spoiled.
He is not going to run away or forget you. Geez....grow up.

As a responsible pet owner, I would have to ask you, what is more important, going to Las Vegas, or staying home to make absolutely sure your pets are safe? If you HAVE to go, PLEASE make sure a RESPONSIBLE person comes into your home AT LEAST 3 times daily to feed and water your dogs, and let them out to potty. If they go outside, they MUST be leashed. They should NOT go out unattended. That is absolutely a MUST!

If you're still concerned, then I would think, for your own peace of mind, take the poodle to your vet and board the dog there. Sure, it will cost a lot of money, but at least you will know the dog will always be safe.

If you are leaving your Poodle and your Maltese to their own devices alone in the house then don't be surprised when Animal Control goes in and takes them.
