Questions....I've got plenty. With all the experts here it's a gold mine of information and experience. I've been golden deprived since I lost Boomer last year but I'm pretty sure I'm going to adopt a rescue....will find out for sure tomorrow. I've visited him twice and he seems like a sweet guy. He's about 4 or 5 years old and I'm just wondering the best way to get him settled in his new home. Should I crate him at night, while at work or give him the kitchen area while we are gone. I would hate to crate him at night and then again during the day. Some work days are long some short 3-4 hours. This is my biggest concern. Boomer was raised as a pup so we sort of knew how to handle it. He was allowed very early in life to have whole house privileges. It will take some time to get to know the new guy. Any ideas or suggestions on welcoming this guy into our home is much appreciated. Never rescued and never started with an adult dog. Thank you all so much.
