Question for younger consultants with a dog. I’m a recent grad and have been debating getting a dog for some time now. I have researched costs so I’m well aware of the financial responsibility. I’m more so concerned with the things that people tend to overlook. My project work has me around 50-55hrs a week. I maintain a good wlb I cook, workout, meet friends, go out to town. What are some things that turned out to be a pain in the ass when getting a new dog/puppy that you didn’t foresee?
