I have a 7 month old half pug half lab and I used to bring her to work with me but she has gotten a little too big to take and ive been leaving her at home all day alone...does she need a friend?? she stays inside and doesnt make too many messes i just feel like she gets very lonely since she has never really been alone until now?? Help!!
if your dog is just starting to be alone all day you might want to try just giving him some toys. my dog loves stuffed animals from the pet store. he is alone alot of the day and seems to keep himself entertained with them. when i get home he has them all over the house. its not always easy leaving your pet alone but he should get used to it. not everyone can be home with them or take them to work. try using toys if you can unless you can afford another dog but then you have to see if they will get along and all that. good luck to you!
I wouldn't suggest a second dog for just that reason, especially when your's is so young. I have a 7 month old puppy and a 3 year old dog. Getting the second dog wasn't quite like having two dogs...some of the time it feels like having ten! Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade either of them for the world and I truly enjoy them, but I am glad I waited til my older dog was no longer a puppy. I too worried that Merphy was lonely during the day...I think he was, but having two, they still just lay there and sleep all day while I'm at work. Get your dog a kong or something and wait on a new pup until you are ready for one.
