I'm seriously considering adopting a dog, and wanted to get some advise from other expats out here in HK to make sure I make the most responsible decision.
I work a 9-7ish job and travel for work, so if you live a similar life style and have a pup - help!
Dog walkers? What is their average hourly rate and how trustworthy are they?
Kennels? I'm in NYC 5 times a year and though I could probably leverage friends for puppy sitting, I'd like to have a kennel for extended trips and as a backup option.
Dog parks? Dog friendly parks? I live in Mid-Levels so preferably around here. Also, I'm looking at adopting a golden, so if anyone knows of any dog friendly beaches where he could swim that would be wonderful.
Trainers? I would prefer to have a private dog trainer as opposed to 'obedience' classes.
Vet referrals? This is important - this isn't my first time being a dog owner and I've come across some very disappointing dog doctors in the past.
Puppy play dates?
