Can you have a dog and work? Of course you can - but possibly not with every dog. In this podcast we hear from a breeder who doesn't home her puppies to owners who work, leaving the home empty all day. We also hear from an owner and breeder who works and keeps her dogs happy. If there's no ultimate wrong or right, how do we ensure our dogs are happy? Plus we celebrate breeders who care about their dogs - as opposed to "greeders" who churn our puppies purely for money.
