Hi there, I'm Nikki, I'm new to this forum. Looking to get a Beagle puppy. Was wondering what advice, tips etc anyone had to give about the dog, tried to read up a bit about them. Was wondering what to do re work, obviously most people who have dogs work full time, I work shifts so would not be left an awful length of time but what is the best thing to do? I'd assume the dog would get used to being in a crate, although it does sound cruel until someone could get to him but between myself, partner and parents it might work out ok?!
