Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Paché is. 2 year old husky mix. He is great and really have no complaints except that as every husky when he doesn’t get exercise he gets a bit destructive and challenging.
My husband and got him when he was 8 weeks old. Since then we encounter medical situation, where I had high risk pregnancy and bedrest. This already made it challenging to keep him but we were planning on buying a house (we live in a NYC apartment now). We had our son, who is now a toddler. The space is def cramped because of you know anything about NYC apartment is that they are tiny + a toddler.
We have come into some financial struggles and won’t be moving to a house anymore, but a bit larger condo with a balcony. However, with my husbands current job he is contanstly getting stuck with overtime and that leaves pache with 2x 30 min walks that I can take him on while having a toddler.
We have come to thinking we are clearly not providing him with the lifestyle he needs. With our life changes in the past year :He isn’t getting high exercise,  he is constantly behind a baby gate and has limited space in an already small apartment. Dog walker isn’t in our budget because of multiple financial hardships we have encounter ( which led to having to step back on getting a house)
My heart is torn and broken. I love him deeply. But maybe rehoming would be the best for him.  Any feedback or thoughts are welcomed

Not sure what doggy daycare costs there but I sent my dog one day last week and it made a huge difference in his energy level for several days after. If one day a week was in your budget I bet it would make a huge difference. You would still need to do your normal 2x30 walks but having that one day where he blows his energy out with other dogs makes that 2x30 walk go so much further.

A treadmill can make a big difference too. Nothing fancy, can look for a used one on craigslist or marketplace that is collapsable and train him to walk on it which is what my plan is for rainy bad weather days here.

*Edit to add: Since your dog is 2 you can start doing weight work with him. I have a backpack for my dog. He's only 1 so I'm just now starting with him. I have the Outward Hound Backpack and am starting him carrying it empty. After they get used to it empty then you can start slowly adding weight up to around 10% of their body weight. Carrying a little extra load on walks can help get more work out of the same walk and wear them down faster. Just go very slow with adding the weight. They get sore doing new exercise the same as us humans.
