Although it is not ideal, an adult dog can go for 12 hours. Is there any way you could come home for a quick stop to let the dog out? Or hire someone to come let the dog out around 9pm or so?
im in FL and i know of the one close to where i live in wildwood.Originally Posted By: jazy's momWhere in the southeast are you located. Maybe one of the local rescues could help you find a mature GSD that is right for you and your lifestyle.
I would recommend that you try to find a friend, co-worker, or neighbor that can let your future dog out on the nights that you have to work 12 hour shifts. I will say that from time to time, I have left my dog for 12 hours due to my work schedule, but it is not something I would recommend to make a habit of. One of my dogs got a bladder infection, because she would not go to the bathroom in the house and I was working long hours during tax season at the time.
