Guide to Raising a Puppy When You Work Full Time

Raising a puppy while working is tough, but it can be done. Puppies have different needs depending on their age. After those intense first few weeks, things ease off. A combination of planning, friends, and paid help will certainly be a great support for you. And the good news is, put the effort in early on and you’ll have a settled adult dog who copes just fine while you’re at work. Leaving a Puppy Home Alone Working full time means leaving a puppy home alone. Oh, those puppy eyes! Leaving that adorable bundle of cuteness is hard, but is it fair? Actually, yes it is. It’s a mistake for a puppy to be constantly in your company. This can make them over-dependent on people. This means they won’t learn the skill of being alone. So leaving a puppy isn’t cruel but…how long can you leave a puppy home alone? Read more: How Long Can You Leave A Dog Alone? Breeds, Tips, and Solutions The limiting factor is how long the puppy can hold their bladder. And for this, there’s a simple equation. Take the puppy’s age in months and add one. This is the number of hours they can hold their bladder. For example, a two-month-old pup can hold for three hours max A four-month-old pup can hold for five hours This equation levels out at around 6 – 7 months, with no dog being comfortable holding their pee above eight hours. In practical terms, leaving a puppy home alone while at work, means you’ll need to give the pup comfort breaks at the appropriate times. Excluding comfort breaks means risking the puppy getting confused about potty training, therefore, leading to an untrained dog. Thus leaving a puppy alone for 8 hours isn’t great for any four-legger regardless of age. While it’s technically possible for a young adult dog to hold on this long, a puppy needs frequent toilet breaks plus the stimulation of company. This raises the question: What to do about the dog while at work? The answer is to get help. Remember, this stage isn’t forever and these demanding times do pass. Raising a Puppy while Working: Getting Help Let’s say your bundle of fun is 8-weeks old. They need toilet breaks at least every three hours (for more options see the Toilet Training section.) Somehow they need walks outside for potty training and a game to amuse them. This means planning ahead. Your options include: Popping home in your breaks Having a friend or neighbor call in Employing a dog walker or puppy sitter to drop by Leaving pup with a friend Doggie daycare Let’s...
