I'd like to get a puppy and I'm doing a lot of research into how to raise them and what they need etc, but I'm a bit concerned as to whether it would be more difficult considering my circumstances. I live in a first floor flat with balcony, by myself and work early morning shifts (leave at 3am, get home at 1pm) as a four on four off pattern. I've been reading that puppies need not only a lot of attention to begin with, but a routine that they can get used to in order to make it easier when it comes to toilet training. Obviously due to leaving early in the morning on my work days I wouldn't be able to take it for a walk at the same time in the morning like I can on days off and as I don't have a garden it wouldn't be able to go outside when it needs to if I'm not there. I know I can have an indoor toilet to begin with, but if it's not going for regular walks will it struggle to learn to go to the toilet when outside? Does this sound doable or is it going to be more difficult? I don't want to confuse the puppy and it not know when or where it can go to the toilet. And I don't want the puppy thinking it can only use an indoor toilet.
