Vets advise that dogs are left home alone for no more than four hours at a time. But recent research shows that more than two million dogs in this country are regularly left for five or more hours.  Most of us admit to occasionally leaving our dog for more than four hours but not routinely.  Dogs are naturally social animals and to spend so much of their time in isolation can result in depression and anxiety and unwelcome behaviours such as chewing, digging, barking and defecating.  If you have to regularly leave your dog for so long, then you should consider options such as a dog walker/sitter or day care - or not have a dog at all.
