As some of u will remember we lost our lab fletcher nearly a month ago. While still grieving for him I cant help but think about what dog we mite get when we're ready. We inherited Fletcher from my brother in law and next time round we want to put plenty of thought into what dog is right for us. With Fletcher I walked him in the morning, then he had 3 hours on his own in an outside kennel, with hut, then walked for an hour then another 3 hours till i got home from work. This worked well for him as he was slowly introduced to the routine as a pup. I want a dog that can be left for up to 3/4hours at a time, with a walk before and after. we have no children. i would also like a rescue dog but very unsure if we could give it the best home when its getting left. any opinions??
