|middleofnowhere||The dog will be fine. Not ideal but the dog can deal with it. I'd split the feeding in two rather than one meal and on the days I worked, I would go straight home afterward. She's 6 months now, crate trained, you work 2 to 3 days a week 10 hours a day... It WILL work out.|

|Ohana||Have you tried contacting your SO? Think of your pup like a child. Maybe she could take the baby on the 3 days you work.|

That is doable.

|misslesleedavis1||Put an add out for a dog walker! maybe you grab yourself a teen looking for some extra cash after school? my son makes 20.00 a week walking a friendly pup named Molly, he is 10 so 20.00 is like WOAH to him lol.|

I always work 10h shifts and never more than 3 days in a row. (But I can probably change days so I never work more than 2).
Next week I work Wensday and Friday
Week after that I work
Monday, Tuseday - Saturday, sunday
You guys really think it can work? Even if I can't get a dog walker?
I've crate trained her to max.
She once was in there for 16hours when I slept that long. (On pain meds because I was sick). She could hold it.
I suppose I should give her food at the morning now then? When I wake up and then walk her for a long walk before I head off to work.

|Blanketback||Yes, it's definitely doable. And if it's only for 3 days a week it's not the end of the world either. Good luck with your sweet little girl, OP. Between a crate and a dog walker, you should be fine|

She should be fine. If my 14 week old can hold for 8 hours overnight, your 6 month old can hold for the amount of time you are working. Our dogs used to go all day without being let you before DH started working closer to home.
Just make time to bond, train and play with her. Ask your neighbors if they can let her out midway thru the day or after 8 hours.

|zgil86||When we got our puppy at age of 8 weeks, he was crated up to 10-11 hours. Not saying it was a good solution but it was the only one we had. He was in create for 3-4 months until we built sunroom for him with space to run. I would create him until you find long term solution.|
