Debating with my husband over leaving Rottie at home
(McDonough GA , Henry)
My rottie will be three in september, my husband seems to think that he cannot stay at home alone from 6:45am to 5:30 pm, he thinks he needs to be left at another house so he can pee at 4.
What is the longest that a 2 year old can go without using the bathroom.
This is a question that doesn't really have just one answer, as a lot depends on the dog.
Most dogs of this age could 'hold it' all day, but whether they will or not is another matter. Is it possible to put in a 'doggie door' to a securely fenced back yard, or have a neighbor/friend/relative pop in to let him out around lunchtime? It would be better for him if he could go outside, that's a very long day in lots of ways.
However, if all the above are impossible, you could try it for a day or two and see what happens. If he does eliminate indoors, or he gets very bored or destructive or upset, then doggie-daycare or a friends house, or a petsitter etc. would be needed.
Hope this helps a bit, best of luck with your dog.
