Is there any "home style dog care centre" around malad east?

Hi, i love dogs but both, me and my husband, are working full time. I am really keen to keep a puppy but i am not sure if a puppy can be left alone for 9 hrs; i can get a maid to feed and walk him around noon once and then my cook comes and cooks so she is around for about an hour in the eve. To get a full time maid and leave the house open to her does not seem very feasible to me. Moreover i do not want a full time maid intruding into our privace all time in a small 1 BHK mumbai house. Is there any way out?? i have been postponing my wish of keeping a dog since last 1.5 yrs cus of this issue; is there any "home style dog care centre" around malad east where i can leave the puppy during office hrs?

hi ashita
its nice that u want to have a puppy but it seems that u dont have enough time and place it is not adivisable to keep any dog if u urself cannot take care of it ,
as it will be completely dependent on u , u need to have time
the other option would be spending time wid ur friends dogs or u could visit nearest dog shelter and sponser a dog

Hi
I really don’t think it would be good idea for you to have a puppy. Since these kids really expect a lot of attention and care. Which even if you hire a keeper or a walker would suffice. Trust me if I said having a puppy is no simpler than having a baby. Both needs a lot of parenting responsibility. I completely agree with Mr. Samir's suggestion.
Its been a while every now and then I get calls from families who intend to get rid of these boys since they misjudged the responsibility factor while buying their pet and within a short while they had to give up on them. It becomes really difficult for these owners and most importantly these kids to part and settle with a new home.
Regards

MAY BE YOU SHOULD GO AND SEARCH FOR DOG BOARDING /SCHOOLS FOR YOUR PUPPY....DROP HIM WHEN YOU GO TO OFFICE AND PICK HIM UP WHEN YOU REACH HOME......THIS WILL BENIFIT BOTH YOU AND PUPPY...HE WILL LEARN.....(GIVE HIM LOTS OF LOVE WHEN HE'S HOME....AND GIVE HIM YOUR WEEKENDS)
(TRY TO GO FOR A SMALL BREED WITH LOTS OF HEART LIKE....COCKERSPANIEL /PUGS ETC.,)

Hi all, thanks for your valuable suggestions.I do realize that a puppy is no less responsibility compared to a human baby; infact that is the reason that i did not get into it without thinking of the required arrangements. However i would like to mention that we need to find solutions in real life situations - simply saying " a dog is not a good idea because you do not have time" should not be the obvious solution. In the past also whenevr i have searched for dog care centres i have got such preachy responses about how a puppy is like a human baby - i absolutely agree to that. but people who do have full time jobs do they not have babies? they do; and creches were born out of this very situation. Even for a child its best that one parent is home all time but thats not the case mostly with our generation - so we do find a solution. If it was possible for me to take about 5-6 or 8 weeks off from office to settle the puppy i would have definitely done that and then looked for a helper/day care but unfortuately right now i cant do that. I do assure all of you that i would not take a puppy till the time i am confident that i can provide adequate care. Thanks Aditya for your practical approach to my query.
