thinking of getting a havanese
Hi everyone, I'm new here. I've been researching on different dog breeds, and I fell in love with the Havanese. I am thinking of keeping one, but I am worried that my schedule is not going to suit a Havanese needs. I am moving to Australia midyear, and I even started emailing a breeder to ask advice on. I checked and emailed dog walking services in the area (I found one). I've been looking for doggie daycares but sadly there's nothing available in the area. I will continue to search for daycares though, so my dog can go at least once or twice a week. I will be working as a preschool teacher, and I pretty much will have the usual school holiday breaks. I'm just worried when I'm at work that I will have to leave my dog alone. I'm thinking of working close to home, so I can go home during lunch hours. I read about setting up xpens, housebreaking, grooming, any exercise needed. But I am truly worried about my dog being alone and having separation anxiety especially that Havanese are companion pets. I think my work will be from 9 to 4, with me going home at lunch.
Whew! I know it's so premature that I am researching, but I want a happy and healthy dog living with me. Hopefully a Havanese!
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
