I am hoping you can please help.
I am getting a new puppy this weekend, my first in a long time. He will be an outside dog.
A few things, I have an event to attend the day after I get him, and will be needing to leave him alone for a few hours.
As the pup is coming from some distance, the collection date is not negotiable. I also do not have anyone available to stay with him on the day.
I have spoken to my local vet who advise that it is best to transition the pet into what will become his normal conditions from day 1, and that he should be sleeping outside, and that it would be ok to leave him alone for this day.
For those who have outside dogs, I am hoping you can provide some tips as to how you have managed this with your pet, and if there are any general transition tips you might be able to offer.
I hope you can please help with some advice, and that it not be a question as to why I will be having a primarily outside dog (having seen it be raised in some other posts).
Many thanks in advance
