Hi Everyone, Me and my fiancee are looking at getting a dog in the future but we worry about leaving him/her home alone whilst being at work. We both leave for work at 7am and I am first home at 3pm. We were just wondering if anyone has any tips on keeping a dog on these terms as we know people out there do have dogs and work full time, and some help would be very much appreciated. We have looked at possibly getting a dog walker to pop round about 10 or 11 just to break the day up for the dog or maybe doggy day care but we don't really think it would be good to send him there 4 - 5 days a week. Plus is crating a dog a good idea and if so for how long do you recommend? One last thing taking our job times into account is there any specific breed of dogs that would suit us better than others? (for example certain breeds that cope better with being left alone more than others).
