I have a 9 week old german shepherd. I am at home fulltime however once a week I leave the house to do a grocery shop (I am gone for around an hour).
My question is, is it ok to leave him in the backyard (it is fully secure with high colourbond fences, concrete lining the whole fenceline, we have locks on the gates and we have nothing dangerous or poisonous in the yard) or should I leave him in the bathroom or laundry? He's not very familiar with the bathroom and laundry whereas he loves being outside and has more space out there.
What are your thoughts?
