What if I need support?

What if I need support?

It’s essential to have a support system in place, even if your puppy doesn’t have any behaviour challenges. If you must go back to work or leave your puppy for a longer-than-you’d-like period of time, I recommend a combination of the following: 

  • pet sitters & dog walkers
  • dog-share with neighbours/friends/family 
  • take your puppy along (if appropriate)
  • work from home
  • take vacation

Grocery shopping and errands can be done online or tacked on to a time where the pet sitter can hang tight for an extra half hour. Social events can still be attended when you have that neighbour who loves puppies but doesn’t want the full-time commitment. There’s always a solution – we just have to get creative!
