Question: I'm 22 years old. I'm a teacher and I live alone. This means that I will be gone from about 6-4 every day. I really want a dog. I have a yard and am willing to fence it in for a dog. I just want to be sure that I won't be neglecting whatever type of pet I get. Can someone help me to decide?

If you get a dog, you should crate it (put in a cage) during the day while its a puppy, or it will go to the bathroom in the house. I wanted a dog but I work a lot of hours too so I felt bad. I am 25 and I live alone. I got a cat a few years ago then I decided he was lonely, so I got him a girlfriend (both fixed though, no babies). They are very low maintenance, and they love to cuddle with you. Basically you feed and water them, and clean their litter box every day. They wait at the door for me when they hear my car pull up when I get home. They try to comfort me if I cry, they lick my face. They sit on my homework while I'm trying to do my homework, but its so cute. They beg for Taco Bell lol.. I love them. And you can always add a dog later when you are home more, or are married to someone that can help too.

A good background in sales would be helpful in being a successful real estate agent. Earning money in the real estate career field is different for each individual. You determine this by your dedication to your potential clients, if you have a good marketing plan or sitting around the office listening to real estate war stories about what once was and the good ole times, and I remember when. Sitting in the office listening to the other agents tell you what will not work is not the key to being a successful real estate agent. The key to having a successful career in the real estate field are simply and easy to follow. #1 Get the necessary education to get your state license. A. An internet class would do just fine you are only trying to get your license. B. If you like to sit through a class then find a real estate school in your local area. C. Some real estate offices offer career real estate license school in their office #2 Obtain the necessary continuing education to maintain and keep your license to sell real estate up to date. #3 Formalize the best marketing plan you can think of to maintain a high degree of referrals and a good customer base. You may listen to others that are successful and those that are unsuccessful tell you about what they do that work and what they do that don't work for them. You are not them so, what might work or not work for them might be the reverse for you. So take what they tell you and put them into something that work for you. Starting part time might work for some and not for others. It simply depends on how many hours a day you are willing to put into your new career and how bad you want to leave your old career behind. Sometime your present career can be a crutch. The main thing you want to remember about making real estate your career is that you are working for yourself, so you are the one that have to motivate yourself each and every day. You want to become an expert in real estate not just a person that sell and list houses. There is a big difference. There are several marketing techniques that are in use today. #1 There is telemarketing, but then there is the "Do not call list" So you have to be careful there and not make a mistake or you will be sued. Cost is $11,000 per call for you as well as your employer. #3 Advertise in the local newspaper that you are now in the business of doing real estate. #4 You can direct mail to people in your city telling them you are in the real estate business. I suggest you market yourself by leaving the office and spending time in a area that you want to work and get to know the people that could be your future clients. Find an area in your city that you want to work approximately 5,000-10,000 houses. Make you enough fliers to cover your area. If you have children this will be a good weekend activity for them as well as yourself. While walking the area passing out your fliers, if you see someone out doing the lawn or just out introduce yourself, give them one of your cards. See if they are willing to give you their name and email address so you can email them, on a monthly basis, things about the real estate industry as well as your monthly newsletter. Place any information you collect in a data base that you should start. Your flier should tell them a little about you, the high school and college you attended, a little about your family # of children, husbands first name if you have a family yet, a few of the real estate programs that you will be offering and introducing. This is an introductory flier that you can make on your computer. You can get them ran off at Staples or Office Depot. You should pass these type fliers out at least 3 months in a row. This will let them know that you are sincere and look as if you will be there for them. You should also visit the local commercial places in the same area. Find out if they will allow you to place a flier holder in their business, give them one of your business cards, find out their name, write it down you never want to forget it because they will become one of your partners. buy something even if you are gonna give it away and don't need it. Do this to as many commercial businesses in the area as will allow you to place a flier holder in their place of business. You will find the flier holders at Staples or Office Depot. Call the post office and inquire about their bulk mailing stamp. Get one and learn the system of bulk mailing. Also call your title company and get them to provide you with the names of the people in your area that you have been passing out your flier. Remember your data base you were starting and now should have over a thousand names that you alone should have been able to get if you have been walking the area. Once you have passed out the fliers for at least 3-4 months start you a newsletter covering topics on the real estate business. Get articles from your loca

sugar gliders are nocturnal, so it will be waking up when you get home, and when you leave it will be going to sleep. they have to bet kept in pairs, and in a cage no less then 18x18x36 or 24x24x30. they eat fresh fruit meal worms, and sugar glider kibble every night.

If you are thinking of getting a puppy then don't. Being gone ten hours a day is much too long for a puppy even if you can get home in time to let it or take it on a walk on your lunch time. If you are seriously considering getting a dog, you would need to get a dog that is over 2 years old that would not feel neglected by being left in a fenced yard during the day like a puppy would. Also, if you don't intend on getting your yard fenced BEFORE you get a dog then a dog probably isn't the right pet for you because you can't keep a dog locked up or in a kennel for 10 hours a day. It's cruel and inhumane, they're not meant to be locked up all day. I would suggest a cat for the time you have available.

I am also a teacher and I personally would not consider getting a dog if I lived alone, especially if it was a puppy. The reason is that dogs need a lot more attention than I would be able to provide, and they tend to be very destructive if they don't get that attention (picture your yard all torn up). While I am totally a dog person, I would opt for a chinchilla. I don't know if you are familiar with them; chinchillas remind me of a cross between a mouse and a rabbit. I have a chinchilla for my classroom pet; she stays at school during the week and I take her home on the weekends. She is about the size of a rabbit, and she is very clean and easy to care for. In the past, when I taught older students, I used to let them take her home one weekend a year, as long as the parents gave consent and understood how to care for her. They are not quite as expressive personality-wise as a dog, but you definitely grow attached! I would look into that, personally, providing they are allowed as pets where you live (I know they are in California). Whatever you decide to get, I hope you enjoy!

Please do not get a dog right now. Dogs need constant attention, and it would be neglecting it if you left it at home while you are away for six hours. If you get a dog, you need to be able to care for it properly. You sound like you really want to do your homework- good for you! If you would like a pet, get a cat. Cats do not need contact affection like dogs, and they do not have to be taken out to go to the bathroom, they can go in a litter box. Cats are just as affectionate as dogs, but they are smaller and don't need to be fed as much. Good luck finding a cat that fits in with your life style. Allygirl
