That’s okay! :)
My partner and I both work full time, so yes we’re in that situation. Having said that, we do not leave our dog Indi alone all day. Whenever we’re at work she goes off to doggy day care and goes for long walks in various forests and beaches with other dogs. I can’t tell anyone what to do, but I don’t agree with leaving dogs alone for the majority of the day. If I didn’t have the means to make sure she was taken care of whilst I’m at work, I wouldn’t have a dog in the first place.
They’re such loving social creatures and I personally couldn’t cope with the guilt of her being alone for so long, nor any anxiety issues she might develop as result. Not all dogs are the same, but I can’t help think being left alone all day is just plain cruel. I hope you put lots of consideration into that if you do get a dog.
