Topic: Media research areas to live
June 16, 2019 / By Aldous Question:
When you read this, there will be a lot of information on what I plan to do with my life in the future and how I will fit my new little pup in. Any advice on training, breeds, or anything else is welcome. Please no rude answers. Thank you. :)
I will tell you about my life style. I live in a tailor, and if we clean it up before summer, I think it will be ready for a dog to live in. It is a little crowded, but it should be straitened out soon. When I am home, I will most likely be gone and exercising with my dog until dark. I will take it to the park, exercise, settle down, then train it to do some things. I want to train them over just the obedience. I want to teach them tricks such as placing a dog treat on their nose, let them wait until I give them the signal to flip it up,then catch it in it's mouth. Or letting them search out things I have berried, something like search and rescue.
I am saving up for a puppy now. I plan on getting one this summer. I will get my car sometime around then and will begin my exercise program I have conducted for myself. I will be running every other day and biking every other day. The week ends will be free. I also plan to train my pup to be house trained. He will be living in an apartment once I move.
During school (the coming year I'll be a senior) I will be gone for 8 hours a day. I think if I train it during the summer, it should be fine. It will be about 3 months old by then. Is this old enough if I get a medium or smaller sized dog? I am also doing this work release program during school also, so money shouldn't be a problem. The 8 hours won't change either. Also, during school, I am doing this program for emergency services, so after high school, I will no longer need any more education. I am working to be a firefighter. I barely have any classes needed for next year, just two semester classes (government and Psychology). Versailles is 4 blocks and work release is two. I will have two extra spaces for a semester class. After my senior year, that summer I will plan on moving into an apartment and accomplishing my career. College is not an option.
I want to get a pup that is lovable and will protect me when needed. I want one that will be my buddy and doesn't get bored easily as long as he has toys to stimulate his mind and some treat toy things too. The ones that take for ever to get a treat out of the ball. I love the breeds identical to Shepherds, Collies, and Spitz. I love the fluffy ones (They usually turn out to have two layered coats). I do not totally get a dog by it's looks, but the characteristics come with these looks that I admire.
I want a list of dog breeds that can live in an apartment with no problem as long as it gets daily exercise. I have done a lot of research, but I want your first hand experience on the breeds. I am open to any medium sized breed or any small breed that fits this life style (30 - 60 lbs). I will have a yard for the pup for about a year or so until I move into an apartment with no yard. It will still continue to get it's exercise though.
I want to prepare my new pup. So I think after the summer, I will know what to expect. Once I get my car, I'll be checking into the fire station and gathering information as well as on the computer if the firefighter thing doesn't work out. My pup will be my little companion. I want to do something with human rescue, so that way I can use my dog to sniff'm out and I won't have to get rid of it, which I would never do. I want to do something to save people's lives. What do you think I should do? I am not interested in anything medical, and if I have to continue math, I can not do math. I didn't pass Algebra II and therefore would conclude that me passing is not an option, unless I don't have to take math. Then again, if I do get a dog, it will mean I am not going to college, but only a training program that will prepare me. Which is perfectly fine with me.
I know what a dog need. Its daily exercise, food, water, attention, toys, ETC. I will have time for it. I don't plan to do a lot of social thing because I know I will most likely not have the time with my exercise program. I want to get in shape because I will have to be fit for my job. I don't want to work as a waitress all my life and this year I have been more serious about being a firefighter and that is why I am trying to see what I need to do before I graduate. As I do this, I will have my little puppy buddy with me and it will be like my best friend. I get along with animals quite well; I have been around dogs all of my life and non of ours died of disease, then again we never had a pure breed. They only ever got their rabies shot and de-worming. I don't recall my parents giving them amy other shots and they are perfectly fine. :) My pup will come first before any other arrangements besides school. I want a good paying job that I enjoy. I want something that will pay me over $40,000 a year. I will most likely have no p

You may want to look into dogs in the Toy group--Pomeranians and Papillons may be something you're interested in. You may also want to look at Shelties or American Eskimos.
Understand that small dogs won't be able to do much running with you (though they can do some, it may be harder for them to keep up) and often small dogs as well as Shelties can be barkers, so you'll want to get that under control before you move into an apartment.
You may also consider a Greyhound..they're a little larger (around 60 lbs) and aren't fluffy, but they're great apartment dogs and can run with you as well.
Any way you decide to go, check into the breed club to look for reputable breeders in your area and talk to THEM. They'll know if their breed is right for the type of lifestyle you can give it, and they'll also know their pups well enough to make a good match.
Another thing: when your pup is young, you may want to consider having a dog walker or friend pop in during the day and give the dog a bit of exercise and a chance to relieve him/herself.
Hope that helps.
DON'T BREED OR BUY WHILE SHELTER PETS DIE
Between 9 and 11 MILLION animals die every year in shelters and only you can stop it.
If the dog is big, black or any of the "Bully" breeds (pit bull, rottie, mastiff, etc) it was pretty much dead when you walked it through the front door of an animal shelter, specifally a kill shelter which many shelters still are.
Those dogs just don't get adopted. It doesn't matter how 'sweet' or 'well behaved' they are.
the dog doesn't get adopted within its 72 hours and the shelter is full, it will be destroyed. If the shelter isn't full and your dog is good enough, and of a desirable enough breed it may get a stay of execution, but not for long . Most dogs get very kennel protective after about a week and are destroyed for showing aggression. Even the sweetest dogs will turn in this environment. If your pet makes it over all of those hurdles chances are it will get kennel cough or an upper respiratory infection and will be destroyed because shelters just don't have the funds to pay for even a $100 treatment.
Well, let me begin with this. A dog, any dog needs space. Not a ton of space as long as you're exercising them, so I would defiantly get your living situation straightened out before aggressively looking for a dog. I mean you wouldn't want a Bull Mastiff or Great Dane in a little trailer. I think you need a dog that is obviously loyal and has a lot of physical endurance. I am a tad bit biased as I am a pit bull lover, for you I wouldn't suggest a pit because you should be a little more advanced for such a powerful animal. So what I am suggesting is a milder second cousin of the pit; the American Bulldog is an amazing people friendly, and if raised correctly, an animal friendly dogs. This is what I suggest for you. They are incredible dogs who require a lot of exercise and attention and are very loyal dogs.
A Jack Russell Terrier fits that description. They are hyper during the day and love to play but at night they are tired and gentle.
Could you please break this all down to two to three sentences. I fell asleep three times trying to read it and still don't know what it is you are trying to ask, because I don't see a question.
