Hiya Sooner or later, I will be working full time as a groomer (I hope). I am starting to look at the options I have as I will be having Ollie, my rabbits and my rats when I move home. When i move, both me and my partner will most likely be working full time as we probably couldn't afford to have one of us not work or work only part-time. Now, I have three options: 1. Take Ollie to work with me, which of course would be the best option however he is jealous of me with other dogs, which of course is a problem when I'm working with other dogs. I could teach him to not be jealous, but if i couldn't, my employer may not want him there. I did take Ollie to work once, he barked when I was working with another dog but wasn't aggressive to other dogs. We put him away each time he barked and by the end of the day, he was sleeping on a chair whilst I was working with another dog. So as long as I show I'm not happy with his jealous behaviour, maybe we'll get over it. 2. Leave him at home and I walk him before i go to work, walk him during my lunch break and walk him when I get home in the evening. To my knowledge, all he does when we leave him in the house is sleep. There is no sign of him barking or chewing or pacing. He's usually in the same position on the sofa as when we left him. Would it be ok to leave a dog for 3-4 hours in the morning, with an 1 hour lunchtime and then 3-4 hours in the afternoon? 3. If i can't get home for lunch, I would employ a dog walker to walk him during the day. Are all of these options acceptable?
