    I usually work 8am-5pm or 9am-6pm with 3-4 hours of travel added on a good day + usually 30min-1hr overtime thurs-fri (Crap, writting it out thats alot!) OH works 9am-3pm or 10am-4pm with anywhere of 1-4 hrs travel time depending. We cut our hours alot when we first got Leo as a puppy but over the last 4-6 months things have gotten hectic for us both @ work. We have on occasion (2-3 times) gone out for the night to staying over in the city, leaving @ 6-7pm-ish after Leo has had dinner, but live next door to OH's parents who check on him 2-3 times, shut the back door and put him to bed wich eases my mind. Other times we might go out till 10pm on the weekend to a freidns BBQ or out to Dinner or whatever. Im lucky i have others to check on Leo when we need it

    Enjoy!
    Thanks I'm planning a week long trip to QLD next year to visit family and I'm already stressing about leaving him even though my husband will be on leave and here to look after him.

    I'm going away next week and sending my boy back to the breeder instead of having my partner look after him!! I am such a worrier!

    They have a warm and dry place, water, food, toys the whole deal but still I feel guilty....I am curious on everyone' elses view on whats the longest you will leave your dog(s) alone for?
    My dog is alone between 6 and 10 hrs depending on how long I stay at work - generally 8-9hrs a day. He has access indoor and out.

    I never liked leaving Cappy but we had a different relationship

    I love that you have nine in your pack, it makes me feel so much more normal
