I will not get a puppy unless I am ready, and have time to spare. I am used to a crazy schedule, and is things go like planned, I am sure that a Gsd will fit right in.
-I babysit 3 times a week from 7am to 5pm.
-I am a part-time student at an online charter school (which is really hard, compared to public highschool). I have to juggle babysitting and getting my work done.
-We have two small family dogs, that are undergoing training.(by me).
-I want to join the track team, so I run for alteast 30 mintues everyday.
-I plan on volunteering at a dog training school,
and also will be starting drivers ed. July 4.
My life is hectic and my mom and gram expect a lot from us. I need to get a part time job, so I can get myself a car.
I want to become a proffessional dog trainer. I will not go to college, because I want more of an hands-on experience. I have met dog trainers, that have never gone to college, and they can train a dog better than anyone else. I am taking business classes in highschool next year, though, because I think it would be nice to have my own business.
I love running, hiking and swimming, and I am very active. My German Shepherd will be including in all of these activities. I really like the sport, schutzhund, and want to visit a seminar, to see if it is something I want to do.
A schedule of mine might look like...
5 am: wake up, let pup out, get ready
6 am: feed puppy, let out, little walk/games
7-12 pm: at work
12:15- come home, let pup out, eat lunch (pup and me), play, little walk
1 pm: let pup out, relax/play...computer time lol
2 pm: head out with pup, somewhere safe to socialize (family, pet store, ect.), maybe pup school...
4 pm: let pup out, play for few mintues and then pup goes in crate... I go out with sisters (1 hour max)
5 pm: watch movie...maybe invite friends over
This schedule would work for me and my pup...I dont have many friends...and like spending time with dogs better. My sisters would be able to let pup out when I am at work. And if they can't..I will find someone who can.
