We have decided to not rehome Fudge our border terrier, we are going to try and spend more time letting them around the house, mixing with with our cat and the children and see how things go. My husband is working away but I shall look into a dog walker until I feel abit better health wise, and able to walk them myself again. It is going to be hard going on myself given the current circumstances I find myself in but so be it I love them both and noway could I face giving one of them up, it would break our hearts, aswell as theirs. If it means added stress on me then so be it I guess. I have a few questions. 1) If you have dogs, how many do you have and what breed? 2) Any tips on how to prevent Fudge barking when outside? (he barks for no reason, even worse if he hears someone out there). 3) Are your dogs indoors or out during the day/night? 4) Do they have full run of the house? 5) Where do they sleep? 6) What are they fed on and how often? 7) Do you have children? 8) How long are they walked for each day? Sorry for all the questions, just trying to get more advice to try and help my situation. Thanks to those of you who were supportive and helpful last night.
