How Many Hours A Day Is Your Dog Left Alone?

Just wondering

My dogs are left alone for 8.5 to 9 hours a day.

I ticked 6-8 but that's at night when she is in her crate while I am asleep (usually 5 - 6 hours). But I am lucky that I am home 24/7.

I can only dream of the day when we can leave her alone for 6-9 hours. We'll have an extra $350 a month.

Only 6 hours while I work...... After that he is with me inside or we go out for RR breaks, play, training and walks. He really is my third child.

8-10 hours but that really depends on the day (whether DD has school, the weather as DH is self employed and works outside, whether I'm working at home) but on an average day when everyone is gone it's roughly 7:30-4.

There is only one day a week they are left alone if even, each Friday my parents go out, so depending when i'm finished work myself, but my brother does be at home 9 times out of 10 with them anyway so maybe 2/3 hours every month is all.

They are alone about 9 hours while I am at work. However in the winter (Nov-May) my hubby is not working so they are only alone when ever he leaves the house for fun and errands.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away.
