My husband and I began using Doggies to Go about three months after we adopted him. For the first three months that we had him, before we started using Steve and Laura, he was a very happy, well-adjusted puppy. But after about a month of using them as our doggy daycare, we noticed a tremendous change in his personality. All of a sudden, he was extremely scared of men; when we walked him, if a man was walking toward us, he would try to run out into the street to get away. If we were at the park and a man went to pet him, he would cower, lowering his head and running away - totally scared. When we got home from work, our dog would run to the back door, needing to go to the bathroom as if he hadn't gone all day. If he really was outside, playing at parks for hours, why would he need to go to the bathroom so badly? Also, if my husband or I were home when they came to pick him up, he would run and hide either downstairs or in our second bedroom. Steve would literally have to DRAG him out the door. This always concerned me, but when I asked Steve about it, he said that it's common for dogs to not want to go when their owners are home. I get that, but now, for the past two and a half months, we've been using another company and he NEVER runs and hides when the owner comes to get him. He runs right up to her, wags his tail at her and goes with her without looking back. He hasn't cowered or ran away from strange men since we made the change. These people are totally unprofessional. It takes them days and repeatedly left messages to get them to return your phone calls or emails and they say that they provide boarding, but every time we aked them to watch our dog, they had some excuse. Looking back now, I wonder what they are really doing all day with these dogs and more importantly, why our dog was so scared and unwilling to go with them.
