Getting A Puppy When Kids Are Away From Home
« on: June 06, 2018, 10:58:16 PM »
Hello everyone. I'm May and I'm glad to share and learn how to cope with a house after the kids are away from home.

My family loves dogs and I'm considering to get a new puppy after my younger son goes to college. I'm not there yet but I'm already anxious that both my darling boys will be away from me. Our eldest is already working in another country and now our youngest is going to college. Getting a puppy will try divert my loneliness.

I can bet that each of us gets anxious at the thought of the kids leaving home but at least your eldest son is already working elsewhere so the experience will not be so new for you. On the flip side, you may feel very lonely since your remaining son will soon be leaving as well. Since you all love dogs, it may be a good idea to get the puppy while your son is still around. It may be his reason to keep visiting, if he will not be moving too far away from home.

Great idea ava. I will have to consider your suggestion and get a puppy as soon as possible and let our son name it. Any recommendation on the type of puppy that is good at keeping us busy?

I think it's a great idea to get a dog when you are ready to commit to one. :) 

I would check out your local shelters and describe what you are looking for to them. There are many high-energy, intelligent breeds you may want to consider adopting, and the shelter staff should know which puppies might fit with your needs and desires best. Please keep us posted!

Good point especially because dogs (and pets in general) take a lot of our time. Shelter staff and any other dog professionals, are best placed to suggest the best dog breed.
