I have a 10 month old male rotty. My son is the primary caregiver to his puppy,although we all have a hand in his daily activities. He sleeps in a crate in my son's room. My son will be leaving for college in Sept. He will be away from our home about 5 days out of the week. I am concerned about what to expect from the dog. Do you have any suggestions to make this transistion less traumatic for the dog and the rest of the family?
Well, I think if you exercise the dog more often and interact with the dog as much as you can the transition will be fine. You can always adopt another puppy so they can keep company:) Vetcare
