When Bella was a puppy and we suspected she had KC, just for 2 days instead of walking her I was driving her to a friend's house a few times a day to run around and see something different. Turns out it wasnt KC so we didn't have to think of a long term solution.] WHen she was in heat we still walked, we just drove to dog free areas and only walked on lead. Post spay, we did small on lead walks for the first few days, the longer on lead walks, before returning to our normal routine. But I honestly don't know how Bella would cope if she wasn't allowed outside our house/garden at all. She gets out at least 4 times a day (total of at least 3.5 hours a day) and often much much more than that. We play around slightly with our walk times e.g. morning between 7 and 10 for an hour. Toilet walk any time between noon and 3pm. AFternoon walk for about 2 hours between 7 and 9, but we often go to friends or for coffee before. And our evening walk between 9.30 and midnight, just 15 minutes around the block. However flexible Bella is with times, she cannot miss a walk. SHe knows she hasn't had it and even though she doesnt beg for it, when it's past the time she wont settle until she gets her walk. For some reason Bella doesnt ever use our garden for toilet, so this necessitates 4 walks....which would be another issue if she was housebound...but I also think there would be many may many morr problems. Playing and training keep her busy and happy, but definitely dont subsitute a walk. So, for those of you who have had to have your dogs housebound for a period of time, how did you cope? and how did your dogs cope?
