First Hotel Stay!

Tibby was very, very nervous when we first got to the hotel.  It lasted for about an hour.  Pacing and panting.

We are on the 8th floor and I think seeing the cars and people out of the patio door started it.
Or maybe hearing doors opening and stuff in the hallway.
Overall it's an extremely quiet hotel.  Which is nice!

I just let her relax.  Or decide when she wanted to relax.

She doesn't look too stressed now LOL!!

They have all the dogs on the same floor.  I saw a grey mini poodle across the hall and there was also a big yellow dog when we were getting off the elevator.  Tibby is still not too sure about the elevator.  It's a very fast elevator and made me dizzy the first time too.
  I started carrying her into and out of the elevator - which helped - now she can go into it and be calm.  We just came in from a potty break and she went into the elevator and sat down in the corner.  Even dogs face the door in an elevator!   

One more thing she had to get used to - wheel suitcases!  Why didn't I think of practicing that!  Everyone has one and Tibby was not too sure of them at first.  Now she's fine.  She just can't understand why there are SO many people every where.  And why they all want to say hi to her - "Oooo, look a cute puppy!"
We're ignoring them until Tibby feels confident enough to say hi back.

Big clattering carts of crates and other gear is another good one for getting a dog used to a tournament/trial atmosphere.

Looks like she is enjoying her stay in the hotel. My dogs are veterans at hotel stays, but they still get super alert for the first hour or so that we are there.

For my guys the sounds in the hallway are what get to them. They're not used to it at home so any sound is something to guard against.

Looks like a nice hotel. Tibby seems comfortable in bed.
