I plan on getting a dog this summer and was considering getting a border terrier. I plan on taking the first few weeks of to care for the puppy, but what should i do later? Leave them at home, or pay a babysitter? I just don't know.
borders are better off with company, they can get lonely, but so long as they arn't left all day they should be fine. mine gets left no more than 6 hours twice a week. and even then i try to get family to come for her, and she gets an extra long walk before hand sh she will sleep.
