How Much is Too Much Time For A Dog To Be Alone In The Yard?

dogaloneIf you live in an rural area, it can be very tempting to let your dog out in the yard to do his business and get some exercise while you are still snuggled in your bed. You must remember, that dogs are social animals and enjoy being around people and other dogs. There’s nothing like an owner out in the park with his dog tossing around his favorite dog toy. Even though there’s a dog gate in your yard preventing your dog from running away, too much time alone will cause your dog to become independent and difficult to train. He will bark and upset the neighbors.. His motto will become “If it feels good, do it!” He may choose to dig up the tulip bulbs. or fence-fight with the dog next door. Without human feedback, these are all rewarding activities for a backyard dog. Personally I would not leave a dog in the backyard un- supervised. Be  a responsible dog owner. Exercise your dog regularly, give him dog treats for good behavior and let him spend as much time around you as possible!
