Thinking of getting a Dobie pup but work full-time
Iím looking at getting a dobie pup but Iím concerned about my working hours and if itís fair on the dog.
Getting a dog-walker isnít an issue and my friends mum actually runs a doggy day care company (itís not cheap but luckily I can afford to do this). Having said this, I still work in London and live by the coast in Essex, UK (an hours commute each way) and work from 8.30am till 6pm. So Iím actually going to be out of the house from 7am through till 7pm. Even with a dog walker coming round at 12pm/1pm for an hour Ė is this just simply too long?
I get up at 5.30am every day anyway to relax, but I could easily fit in a 45 minute walk in the mornings and Iím actually really happy to do this Ė not just for the dog but also for myself. When I get in, will be an hour walk as well. Obviously Iíll have the whole weekend with the dog (so 5 days out of the 7 are a bit tough).
I canít stress enough that I will do the above, not just one of these people that say theyíll do something and then not when it comes to it.
I've also booked a month off work over the Christmas period which is when I was planning on getting one. Been doing a lot of reading (obviously) and just thought what everyone's opinion was... And please be honest!
Does anyone else work these sorts of hours and make it work?
