Hello everyone, I'm in a difficult situation at the moment so sorry for the long post.. I have a 1 year old Beagle. As I was lucky enough to work from home since we have got her I was able to be with her all day. Now I will need to change my job and there is a high possibility of me working in an office somewhere in London M-F 9-5. I am really sad and feeling bad about leaving my Beagle alone during the days that I work because she is used to having me around all day, sleeping in my room and going for walks 3-4 times a day. I don't think she will get used to being alone so easy because she usually cries even if I leave her in the garden for a couple of hours (when I go gym, do other stuff). We have a safe medium sized garden with lots of her toys and her house. When I'm out in the garden she is fine, she loves to just sleep and enjoy the sun, but as soon as I'm gone she's whining already. If she has something to chew on (bone, toy whatever) she is fine alone. My question would be how can I make this situation work for her? If I start a job I would always take her on a walk each morning and to the local park for an hour when I come home. I'm just afraid that she might develop anxiety issues when I will no longer be with her all day. I understand the most people can't do this with their pets anyway but because she was used to this I'm unsure. There is no way I would give her away because of this, but if I would find a place where she would be with other dogs and people all day, everyday I might consider it. I just want the best for her. Thanks for reading, any advice is appreciated .
