I have been thinking about getting an Italian greyhound for a companion. I have raised Iggys before and I have experience with the breed. Right now I am living in an apartment by myself, and I am looking for a companion to walk around LA with me, take to doggy training courses for agility, and snuggle with me at night.
Right now I am working 8 hour days, Monday thru Thursday. How long is too long to be away from your dog at home? Would you keep a dog in a large crate for this period of time? The thing I love about Iggys is that they have two speeds 0 and 35mph, hehe. My last Iggy slept most of the day in bed until he was ready to go out and play.
What is the longest you would leave a dog at home for during the work week?
