I will be living alone and working full time and wondered how others actually manage the day to day care of a dog? Is it easy to organise help during the day? I am a keen hiker and so would spend much of my free time out and about at weekends/evenings. I want to make sure that I am doing the right thing and have looked into it properly before I make the commitment.


Don't adopt a dog in your situation please.

I don't think it is good to have a dog in your situation.

get a fish, with one of those fancy "internet feeding" systems . so you can remote feed the fish ;)

BTW, if not mentioned, one more place for adoption.
