Do you think a Boston Terrier would be ok being Left Alone for 7 hours per Day?

    Here is a Question from Amy Fuller asking if a Boston Terrier would be ok being Left Alone for 7 hours per Day.

    “Hi there! I wonder if you could help me? I have been a Boston terrier lover for as long as I can remember!! My husband is also a great lover of them. We both love how loyal and friendly they can be. We have been waiting a long time to get one. We don’t have children but have a nice big house and big garden where it can run around.

    Only one thing has stopped us from getting one! We both work. We both work locally so going home for lunch is no problem what so ever. And I was also thinking of dropping the dog off to doggy daycare mid week so he can play with other dogs for the day. Other than that we have all the time in the world. All our weekends are free as are our evenings.

    My question to you is do you think a Boston would be ok being left alone some days (7 hours max with an hour gap midway through)? As the only way we can have this dog and spoil it is to go out to work and earn! I know there are very mixed views about this. But as a Boston fan can you give me any advice as I would never want to bring a pup into an environment It would be sad in. Thanks for taking the time to read this! Amy”

    No, the most you should ever leave any dog and this is only after training up to it, would be 6 hours… No more !!! I have had this talk with my vet and this was his advice.

    I don’t think any age dog should be crated for 7 hours a day 5 days a week.
