Leaving Mini Aussie At Home For Long Hours
I'm in grad school and am making the transition from being in the classroom in the same building everyday and having the ability to go home for lunch, or get out of class early - to being on clinical rotations where I need to be at a location up to an hour from my house - hence longer hours away from home.
The first worry that comes to mind is the well being of my 1.5 year old Mini Aussie. He is very well behaved, I make sure he gets lots of exercise and to always run him around the yard as much as he needs. But I worry about leaving him for 8 hours 5 days a week.
Any advice? Words of wisdom? Something to alleviate my anxiety about this upcoming transition in our lives would be much appreciated. Many thanks in advance!!
