Aussie Pup Owned By A Golf Course
We live in a golf community and the golf course management recently purchased an 8-week old female Aussie to ultimately be trained to keep away large numbers of Canada geese which live here and ruin greens, walkways and fairways.
The puppy spends night in a pen with a crate in a large maintenance building. She is cared for during the day by an employee who exercises her several times a day and feeds her twice a day.
In the evening a resident of the community feeds her evening meals and lets her outside for awhile. She sleeps in the climate-controlled building. She has a comfortable bed and lots of toys.
Is this an acceptable environment for the puppy to grow up in? She sees a number of people every day who play with her, but she doesn't live in a home. Will this have a bad effect on her?
Any advice will be appreciated. A concerned golfer.
