Question by Pilot ~ canine son!: Fostering “golden ”. I was to do this. If you foster, I have questions !!
I was personally asked to my personal love and joy in life…. golden retrievers!! My problem is that I’m not retired yet and have 3 more years of work before I can retire from the Airlines. This is my most desire to do this, however, I didn’t expect it to fall upon me so soon. I have questions:

Requirements for doing this “joy”??
I have Pilot…my golden, and have to consider him with this!!
Should I wait till I retire, or go with this now??
Comittments involved??
Length of service to individual dogs??
What’s involved??
Anything else I need to that you can think of??
Adapting time for the dog/s I’m fostering??
Will they fit the personality of the dog to my present dog??

Anything else??
Addition: Thought I’d mention that I am very familiar with the breed as I’m a retired breeder of “quality goldens”, and did show. Pilot does therapy in a retirement home nearby. I’ve not ever “fostered” and need professional info. in the area of fostering. Thanks bunches!! :o)

Best answer:

Answer by allison
goldens are verrrrry good dogs, but they don’t take too well to being left alone for long periods of time.
i think out of love and respect for the dogs, they need someone around the majority of the time. that would be perfect for when you retire, and you might consider only fostering when you know you’ll be home for longer periods of time. i hope you take the dogs into consideration when you make your decision! 🙂
