How long can a 1-2 year old GSD be left alone in the house?
Hello everyone! I couldn't really find the answer that i was looking for so I was hoping you guys will help me out. My family and I are considering adopting a 1-2 year old German Shepherd and I am wondering if my schedule would work with our new dog.
I currently go to school from roughly 7:30 - 3:30, but also have baseball practice coming up later this spring. (normally i would come home then at about 5:00 PM) My mother comes home at about 6-7PM depending on traffic.
So thats about a 9 hour gap when the dog will be home alone. He is house trained and I am also considering crate training him if I need to.
I will be able to give him the daily exercise the dog needs though.
If this 100% will NOT work with my families schedule then if you want, please leave a suggestion on another medium sized dog that would fit us better.
