    We have to go to my husbands brothers funeral on Tuesday. They lived approximately 3 hours drive away from us.
    We won't be able to take Dudley so have arranged for our grandaughter to stay with him.
    The funeral is at 1pm so theoretically we won't be able to leave it until three or four with a three hour drive back.

    I will walk him before I go but my grandaughter is disabled and won't be able to walk him later.

    I think my question is will it hurt if he only gets one walk that day. We do have a big garden but I am concerned about his routine being disturbed.

    First my condolences for your loss.

    I think Dudley will be fine as long as your granddaughter can let him into the garden. Dogs can be very flexible when they have to be.

    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I agree with MM, I think Dudley will be fine. Make sure your granddaughter has some ideas up her sleeve to entertain him, either in the house or the garden, if he gets fidgetty. Could she teach him a new trick, for instance? Or chuck a handful of kibble around the garden for him to forage for?

    Thank you for your ideas. She will be very good with him, it was just the walking that worried me.
