This is going to sound really weird, but hear me out... I'm going to start helping my boss's friend with their dog (a husky puppy) because they don't have the time for it. It used to be their son's but their son got it in college, and when he moved into an off campus apartment they couldn't keep the dog so the son brought it back to his mom and dad's house (so responsible, right?). I found out recently and offered to walk the dog several times a week to get its energy out, and I love dogs so I definitely look forward to this experience! But I think, from what I've heard, the dog isn't well trained yet and pulls when he goes on walks. I'm planning to train the dog a little, but knowing that I'll probably need to get some training toys or something myself. Of course the dog will end up keeping it, so I don't want to skimp on the quality, but knowing it's not really my dog I am slightly reserved on how much money I would spend. What would you do if you were in my position? And please keep in mind that I won't be asking the dog owners for compensation on the toys/training equipment I buy because they have a family member who is going through chemotherapy right now and money may be tight.
