How long is your dog left alone?

Post by Harry on Sat Jun 12, 2010 11:57 am

I want to know how long you leave your dogs without seeing them during the day? When school is on I leave at about 8.40 and get back around 3.30.

But my cousin might be getting a dog and he asked me to find one suitable for his house and garden and other circumstances. There's one problem I can see, He leaves at 8.00 in the morning and his parents work until 5.00 so he stays at his Gran's after school. I think that's a long time for the dog to be alone, so I pretty much ruled out SBT (He has a big book with like 300 breeds in it and he picked them himself Surprised) because they like people too much.

So 2 questions here really, how long is your dog left home? and do you think 8-5 is too long for a Staffy to be alone?

thankfully theres always sum one at my house so my dog is never alone, personally i think that ammount of time is too much for any breed and specially when there a puppy but if he got it now over the summer he's no school and would be able to spend lots of time with the dog but personally i wouldnt get a dog of any breed if 9 hours of the day the dog would be on its own and chances are by the time he comes home the dog wiill have the entire place recked lol

There is always someone here and its usually me. There are alot of people working that have a dog. It is along time to leave your dog alone but you have to make time for it in the morning before school and after. I have always had dogs and I had to walk mine 7.30 every morning before school and again when I came home. Its no fun during the winter months but it has to be done.

Very true Jules, our dogs arent like toys or fancy bikes or cars that we only bring out in the Summer. The dogs need to get out everyday or they would go mad and unhealthy mentally and psychically
