Due to financial strains we recently had to let go of our town house and move into an apartment. This place is really huge, and has a very spacious patio, but no yard. Francis is used to having his own yard, and now is without it. The place we moved to has massive grassy areas and I walk him at least two times a day, so he gets lots of exercise, but he still seems a little gloomy. The apartment is huge, almost 1500 sq feet, and there is a lot of room to run around in here. We live in Fresno, so if it is too hot to walk him, I play fetch with him inside where it's cool, and that usually tuckers him out. He is 4 months old today, and will get his last set of shots this week. I think maybe it is his age, and maybe dogs get stressed out too with moving, but I just want to make sure that I'm doing everything right to make sure he's happy. We put K9 turn out on the patio so he can go potty in between his walks, and he is using the doggy door like a pro. The patio area is huge, and he really seems to like it out there. I walk him in the morning, then crate him for about 4 hours while I'm at work, come home, walk, and then play with him until his nap time. He seems to be adjusting better everyday, but I just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing. It's been very stressful for us with losing our place, but I absolutely refuse to let if affect my dog. If I need to walk him 6 times a day, I'll do it. If I need to make other adjustments, I will. This transition to apartment living should only last a year or so, maybe two. Once I graduate and start working full time, (I'm a nursing student), I'll be able to have the place I want for him. I know that this is a crutial development time for him both physically and mentally so if anyone has any advice, I'd sure appreciate it.
