I was told not to get a puppy because I go to school for 8 hours most days and after that I plan to be working 8 hours. I'm positive people have puppies and work full time as well. I'm wondering how you go about it. I've never been in the situation where someone wasn't home and now I am. I'm hoping to get a job near by, but that's not guaranteed. School is too far to come home at lunch and have any time to walk the pup. As of right now my mother checks in once or twice a week to let Clover out for pees. I'm open to suggestions. Not interested in leaving it at a kennel all day.
