Gone to the Dogs...

So we adopted a puppy! Yep well he is a big puppy but a puppy nonetheless. Two things I learned: one hire a dogwalker at least for a little while. It takes the pressure off! And if you get the right one he or she will become a great ally in acclimating the pup to life in your home. It is good to leave the dog alone in the house so they get used to it early on. A dog walker means that separation anxiety in a rescue can be a bit curtailed. Your pup won't expect you only to open the door or take care of him or her. Our dog walker Mike from Dog Hill is excellent. He comes direct to the house and takes our Beau out for a long walk (almost an hour and a half). His philosophy is more like the city dog walker -- walk in a pack. He does two walks a day from what I understand. A group in Northern Rockland (Haverstraw, Stony Point area) and then a second in the southern area (Palisades, Nyack, Piermont, Tappan, etc.). And he is great! Beau comes off the walk exhausted and pretty much sleeps the rest of the day. Second: adopt a dog. This is the second Great Pyr we have had -- the original came from a breeder and cost us nearly 1200. Beau is a perfect gentleman and a love and he cost us 375 including transport fee from Tennessee. While it comes with trepidation (you never meet the dog till the day you pick him up) beau is a perfect animal for us. The people seemed to match us up perfectly! Plus there are so many dogs in need!
