We got a puppy in May, now he;s nearly 5 months old. Hes a beautiful rottie alsation cross with a fab temperament, hes doing quite well we feel even if he is growning to the size of a pony!
Problem, when we got the dog, I was to be at home all day everyday. In the space of a few months things have changed, i will need to go back to work soon ish. He will be left alone for a few hours, somebody will come check on him, then a few hours latter i will be home. In theory it wll be no longer than a shopping trip at a time he will be alone, but I'm worried about his mental state at being left alone. I will be getting all the toys under the sun to keep him amused but its not the same as company is it!
So question, would a play mate be a better idea? or would that be twice as much of a problem?
