This is stemming off another post. Are your dogs inside dogs or outside or are they both? Mine are both inside dogs but get plenty of outside exercise. They are left alone at home by themselves for maybe 3 hours tops throughout each day. On Friday, Saturday, and Sundays it's less than that if any. On days that I'm in school the SO is here and usually before I get home he leaves for work. We are currently looking for a place with a backyard right now so they can play outside more.
