I’m going to pick up my toy poodle puppy at 18 weeks (4 months). I’ll have a week off but then I have school. I’m not sure how long can I leave him alone at home for? He will be potty trained so that won’t be a problem. I’ll have to leave at 8 and I’ll come back at 4. Would it be possible to leave him alone for that long. I have seen a lot of videos explaining that it is okay to take 3-4 days off when taking the puppy home and then leave him/her alone but I’m not sure how much of it is true. I have a lot of friends who own dogs and they can leave him/her alone for a long period of time but I don’t think that applies to a puppy. Does anyone have any tips or ideas? Can I leave him alone for that long? What did you do with your dog? I just really want the best for Luca.
