I've been looking at getting a dog recently and am wondering how everyone with jobs does it? I've done a lot of research into the dogs I've been looking at, and I have no doubts that I will be able to meet their exercise needs. I mountainbike, run, and generally do a lot of outdoor activities. and can take them for walks in the mornings and evenings. my question is about in between that. I work 9-5 mon to fri. there has to be other people in this situation that have dogs. Do you find that being able to spend time in the mornings and evenings enough? it would be just me looking after it.
if I got a puppy I would likely take some time off work so I would be around more often, and would even consider some kind of dog day care so when the dog is young it will get both social interaction with other dogs and a bit of a watchful eye.
I'm still a ways off actually getting one but I am curious to how everyone else who has a regular job deals with the responisbility of taking care of a dog.
I've got my eye on a few breeds right now with these two popular with me right now anyway.
any input greatly appreciated
