Generally speaking, how long does it take to train them?
My busy time of year is from April-Sept... Oct-March I'm home a lot more, and from Nov-Feb I work from home 90% of the time. So I figure when I finally get a puppy, I'll get one in Oct... That way I'll be home with him pretty much all the time. And while I'll be working at home, it's not to the point where I can't take him out, play with him, etc. at any point.
Would that be a pretty good amount of time to train him?
ETA: And no, this won't be my first dog... I've had dogs all thru my childhood, but this is the first time I'd have my own puppy that my parents wouldn't be training.
