I have a 12 week old Pittie puppy. no chewing furniture, getting into trash etc), it is OK to leave them alone in the house uncrated for 7-8 hrs. YOU are a bully and NOT helping anybody/dog out with this behavior. Yet I don’t think the ethical problem would have gone away.
Definitely not the best idea! You need to understand that most accidents happen out of boredom or loneliness on your puppy’s part. Working full-time or having a busy life and owning a pet is doable, you may just have to get creative to ensure sure their needs are being met. It’s a very extreme position, and not one that I agree with at all.
If you know you’ll be away from home a lot, don’t set your pup up for failure and make sure to potty him to use pee pads as soon as possible.
org before we brought out puppy home! Call animal control for any noise or anything you can.
Does that mean he loves it so much that he’d be okay in it for an entire day? It always worked for me and my husband.

How would like to be kept in a locked cage (which is what "crate" is a euphemism for) for any period of time?
I never realised how much personality a dog could have.
In addition, be sure either you can get home in an hour or two or that someone else can. Knowing their lifestyle, I can sometimes predict what a lonely life that pet will live. I have a small, clingy rescue dog. I hope to soon see it phased out here in the U.S. and banned, as it is in many European countries. It was a very educational experience in many ways.
My choosing to spend time relaxed in a space without budging for sometimes an entire hour is a far cry from being physically confined to that chair, unable to leave it to stretch, eat, drink, relieve myself, or just plain do something else. I was lucky in that my job needed people to work early & late so they were agreeable to this as it helped them staff times when others did not want to be there.
What should have been routine surgery turned into a major problem because the owner did not keep the dog confined or prevent her from licking at her incision. We don’t see destructive behaviors.
Hi there my name isMichael I’m getting a Belgian malinois puppy he’s 9 week old I work 5 days a week 8hr a day I go to work 5am to 2:30pm I have no idea how or where I leave my puppy and should feed him one and when I come back feed him again or I feed him in morning and when I go to work leave him food in he’s plaet It’s that ok if I leave him in the dog crate for 8 hr.

Had to post here first so there would be a way for readers to see Coco in action. Despite the lack of focused research into the question, “How long a period of isolation is acceptable?” there seems to be a loose consensus among trainers and veterinarians that about four hours is a comfortable range for an adult dog. Also, intermittent venues of socialization are important such as doggie day care once in awhile and/or training classes.
Someone who works an eight-hour day and has a commute, followed by errands and evening activities, could conceivably leave their dog home alone for 10 to 12 hours in a single day and on a regular basis.
There is a thin line between dependence and obsessiveness. How should you deal with separation anxiety in dogs? Firstly, I think the article was apt.
Are they really fine? Doodle are highly intelligent and highly active dogs. He coms and goes as he pleases. I am still not sure what the recommendation is for the “ideal” maximun time to leave a dog alone. Crating a dog for 14 hours?! Agreed. They can be intimidating! As much as you love your pup, independence is healthy. A loving home isn’t one where the dog is left alone 10-12 hours a day.
Young puppies and elderly dogs likely need more frequent breaks outside.
They are the best!
One of the best things you can do with any dog is crate training, but it’s especially important if you’re leaving puppy alone all day! My parents’ home has been Gracie’s second home since she was a puppy and she is much loved by my family. But I never did any special training – that’s just the way he was. We can not take him anywhere with us, he is too reactive for day care. I always ask people who leave their fur babies alone for extended periods this question. Simply fill the toy with treats or peanut butter (you can also freeze it) and give it to your puppy right before you leave. Also consider a hidden camera when you start with a new Dogwalker.
I read this type of crap and eventually surrendered him to the shelter since I couldn’t afford a sitter and couldn’t get any adopters. Leaving a puppy alone at home, especially for the first time, can be a stressful experience. Wisdom Panel says 40% American Staffordshire Terrier, 38% Weimaraner, 15% Labrador. He truly feels safe in there. Crates can offer safety.
He’s allergic to everything: all grasses, mold, dust, maple, oak, pine — and wool. She’s my family and she comes first. There’s a huge variety of these available on the market, even for large dogs. I am retired.
Walked well on a leash. I like your article. Amen, leave them in the shelters to die or on the streets starving.
The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly. Aggressive behavior is common Achilles is 8 months old and he always stays on the crate while we are at work (for his safety) but today I’be decided to leave him home alone for the first time since we can keep watching him from our phones . That is the only time that he is in it – nite-nite time. So am I an evil person for wanting to safeguard my cat? It isn’t a walk. Some dogs, if given the opportunity, will go outside to eliminate every couple of hours, while others – even with the freedom to do so – might still only eliminate three times a day. Sometimes, though, it’s good to question the status quo and ask ourselves if we can do better. If you have a puppy, you should always have this one hand. Absolutely what Cornflake said. A dog with a home is better than a dog in a shelter.
Of course, fresh water is always available. His first owner had abused him; his second owner had neglected him to the point of abuse. Having two (or more) dogs reduces loneliness significantly. I’m glad someone I can only imagine what torture it must be for an intelligent social animal, 100% reliant on you, to be alone the greater part of the day, every day. Common comments are: ‘oh, the dog is use to it’ or ‘It’s puppy training’. Alternatively, search for dog relaxation music on YouTube or Spotify, or check out these soundtracks, created specifically for scared and anxious dogs. All of the above happened and despite my total dedication we still lost two pups (it was a large litter) and my bitch nearly died from a severe infection.I slept in the kitchen with them for the first few weeks, hand fed the ones who weren't latching properly every 2 hours, spent all of my time carefully monitoring them and my precious bitch and spent weeks choosing the very best new homes for them. Also Dr Karen Becker has a few words (Kenneling may causing mental illness in dogs) as well but I will NOT leave my dogs alone more than 5 hours max. I walk them before and after work and they attend my training club with me and also dog shows at weekends. Very helpful advice in the video, thank you!

I've bought so many of those for my dog as well as friends' dogs. I would never leave my dogs in a crate for more than 3 or 4 hours without a break, but crates aren’t necessarily the evil torture devices some people make them out to be.
