Dont listen to this.
Your education comes first. The dog deserves your full attention. The amount of time they need is surprising.
Also you will want a break from the real world of adult life later and a dog and hunting is the perfect escape.
Two different opinions. Its up to you to make a choice.
I'll re-iterate this again, I had more free time during college than after. In college, with 20 units (more than most to get out in 4 years), you aren't in class 40 hours a week and you usually don't have a commute or any other adult life BS. 5 Classes puts in you at about 20+ hrs a week. Sprinkle in a few hours at night time doing homework or working then you have lots of free time during the day.
A break from adult life? Buying a dog and going hunting should not be an excuse to get away from life, (i.e. family and obligations with your job). I've hunted more than 50% less since I entered "adult life."
Bottom line, It is do-able if you set your mind to it and don't let college deter you. If you have a good head on your shoulders and organize your time you can train more than most people with day jobs could with the amount of daylight there is each day.
My case is probably unique but My dogs sit in their pen from sun up to sun down mon-fri with no chance of training until the time change and the sun starts going down around 6:30-7. Any day of the week I could have went out to train the dog before classes, in between classes, and before dark while In school.
Agree to disagree I guess?
