So, I would imagine that this is a question that everyone has asked themselves before... but... How long can one regularly leave a dog at home alone? I have looked online and found answers varying from 3 hours to 10... Obviously the ideal situation is for ones dog to have company all the time but for those who work that is simply not an option... of course one could chose not to have a pet but I am sure that many people with day jobs do forge on with their desire to keep a dog... So... what is everyones opinion? Do you have a dog walker? Is 8 hours really too long for an adult dog? Etc etc.
