Hello my names Alex I have had many animals since I was little from birds to having a Siberian Husky and a Golden Retriver. Unfortenatly I have not been able to have any pets lately but I do dog sit on a regular basis and volunteer at a dog park. I wanted to get a GSD since I have had a lot of experience with them and love the kind of dog they are, but because of my work and shcool schedual Im gone a lot and do not want to leave him alone all day. So I was wondering does anyone use doggie day care and what do they think of it? Are there other alternatives? Are there any jobs out there that would allow you to take your dog to work on a regular basis? Thanks for the information, this seems to be a great forum!
