In a couple of weeks we are going to a friend's house to stay overnight, and taking Pongo with us. It is the first time he has come away with us overnight (he is three years old) and I am trying to think through what the problems might be and how to get over them. The biggest issue is that they live in an urban, terraced house with a postage stamp garden. So I'm not sure how to replicate Pongo's usual routine of going round our big garden last thing at night for a pee and poo. For a start, he is not used to being on lead, he has never really seen a town or pavements, and he is reluctant to poo or even pee while on lead. Apart from that, I hope it should be OK; he will sleep in their kitchen and we will take with us his bed (not that he always sleeps on his bed, he prefers the sofa), and his food and water bowls. We'll get there early enough so that he can have his dinner there (so he associates it with food). These are very good friends so they will be willing to forgive misdemeanours! But they are also quite house-proud so I'd like it not to be a complete disaster. Any thoughts / advice? What more should I be considering? Any suggestions about the late-night peeing trip?
