This is a discussion topic for the Ask the Experts Q&A below. Do you think its fair to leave a dog alone all day while the family is at school/work? Do you have a dog sitter instead? Or do you have a friendly neighbor who calls in to check on him and walk him during the day?

Yes if you take the steos to ensure that the dog has someone coming in daily to walk and spend time with it when you cannot. But then technically the dog is not home alone all day, he is having his needs met by an owner willing to do what is needed to make sure they are met.

I agree with Karen, aslong as someone is caring for the dog while you cannot then it is ok. Im a full time student, but i come home at dinner to walk my dog. If I cannot then I always have someone else do it for me.
