    Can Dogs Handle a Nomadic Lifestyle?

    I am totally against puppy mills. I am planing on adopting from a 'Hobby breeder'. Breeders that love pomeranians and also Show their poms in competitions. I find that they don't breed poms for profit but for the joy the animals bring. I have been talking to a couple of breeders that are very dedicated and educated on poms and how to properly care for them. I do want a clean slate. I want to adopt a pup I can care for, train, and spoil:). I think it will be awesome. I have been doing research on pomeranian diet, excercise, and possibly 'showing', if the pup I get has potential. If not, that is okay with me. I think rescue dogs are awesome as well. But for me, it would not be a good fit. Maybe sometime in the future.

    Thank you for the advice. I will take it into consideration. I know this will be a life changing decision. I am taking my time on this, but having a pet pom is just pulling on my heart strings. When I say nurse, I was refering to my income/income potential. I mean to say I have the finacial means of taking care of my pet. I have no intention of every treating my pup if it gets sick. I will leave that to the vet professionals. thanks again for your input.

    I was thinking I may have to do that. But I want to start out with one and then add a another addition later. I will be working 8 hour shifts and I plan to move to an apartment right next to my work place.

    Can Dogs Handle a Nomadic Lifestyle?

    Hi all, for a long time feeling of wanting a dog as come and gone. I have succeeded in talking myself out of it for years. Now here I am. A single, registered nurse, no kids, no mortgage, and just some student loans I will be able to comfortably pay off in 2 years. I am 28 and hope to get married sometime in the next 2-8 years (I hope). I live in a single apartment. I work the night shift, 5 8hr shifts per week. In 1-2 years I plan to become a travel nurse in the ICU and then eventually get into a grad program for nurse anesthesia. That is my life plan...but I know things can change. I have had cats before as and I tend to spoil my pets. I have no pets now. The dog I have researched, that would best suit my lifestyle and wallet is a lap dog/toy pup. I would like a Pomeranian and I am willing to spend to get a pure bred. I like cute things, like Boo (the pomeranian). This type of dog suits me....but will I suit it? I want our relationship to be mutually beneficial. I don't want to rescuee a dog or get a dog from a shelter, because it is the humane thing to do. I rather just get a cat than a shelter dog. I know what I want in a dog. I think it is great that people do adopt rescue dogs but I want a certain type of dog. I am very responsible and know a dog is like a child...that is why I am hesitant. It will be 15-20years commitment. I make a salary that will ensure that this dog will not be a financial burden. but the question is, am I a good fit for a dog? Will a lap dog be happy in my life? Especially since I am not grounded. I will likely move every year andeventuallyy when I become a travel nurse I will be moving even more frequently. What are the pros and cons of this situation if I decide to get a toy pup? your thoughts... thank you for your input I am more than willing to invest time to train. My first thought was on how to curtail the barking. That will be one of the first addressed as well as potty training. I can spring for doggy daycare a couple times a week.
