I would like to buy a pug puppy in September but I work for seven hours across the street. I can check on my pug every 5 hours and would provide with water, pee pads, crate and toys. But I don’t know if this would be ok?! Please help
Generally to leave any dog alone takes training them for a while to be able to be alone and be ok with it.
Start small with crate training, putting them in a crate with a treat or toy and work up from here. Progress to slightly longer absences and leave it to roam where you allow it to. Build it up say 30mins/1 hour at a time. Reward the dog every time you come back too, this reinforces that you will come back.
This builds the dogs confidence to be content alone and being able to cope. It will eventually build a routine and be ok with it.
If you don’t, bored dogs, dogs with separation anxiety can become destructive without putting this groundwork in.
