I work full time, so 8+ hrs a day. She can do longer than that on the odd occasion I'm late. However, when I move there will be someone around 24/7 pretty much.... So no worries!!

I love my job in pretty much every way except for the work hours. The hours in this field suck.

If I took lower pay I couldn't afford to have a dog!!

I discovered today that Zander can go 14 hours without making a peep. I slept until 5pm today because I've been sick with something nasty, and he hadn't been out since 3am.

He woke me up with a few quiet roo's, and once I opened my eyes he was crazy excited. I felt so bad, but at least I feel less sick now! And there's snow on the ground. In Montana. In June. So he was happy about that and got some play time in. He's now sleeping again.

14 hours, though. Not bad. I still probably wouldn't leave him intentionally without anyone in the house for more than 4 though.

8-9 hours regularly when I was working a standard job, though there have been a few days where Maggie had to go 12 and recently a petsitter couldn't make a scheduled noon visit while I was out of town and DH worked late and Z and Snipe had to hold it for 10.5 hours and they did fine.

Now-a-days they rarely go more than 5 hours without someone home thanks to me being self employed, but I don't feel at all guilty leaving them 8-9 hours when I need to.

Dumb luck, seniority, and being flexible in return.

I can leave Eve crated for 10-12 hours. If I leave her in the house for 10-12 hours, usually past 12 hours she'll hop into my shower and pee on the drain.

Better than forcing her to hold it for too long, but I get tired of scrubbing the shower drain! Usually, though, she's not apart from me for that long. If I'm going to be gone for more than a couple hours, she typically accompanies me.

When i start working fulltime, I'm hoping she'll be able to come with me. Since most employers don't seem accommodating in that regard, if I have to leave her at home I will leave the bathroom door open with a potty pad over the shower drain for her.

Right now I work 9 hrs a day with an hour commute. I kennel everyone in 3 - 10' x 20's when I'm at work and someone drops in to let them out to potty midday *most* days.

The longest I'll let them go is 14 hrs without seeing a person. It's basically a day where I have to work - go to the grocery store - then drive home.
