How to rise a Puppy When You Work Full Time


You can raise a puppy when you work full-time. It involves pre-planning, excellent routines and some outside help.

There are many points on the potty training schedule.

In this guide, you will successfully raise a puppy while working full-time!

We will study the challenges of training puppies in crates at work and whether they can be placed in a playpen.

Can I have a puppy when I work?

It is possible to raise a puppy while working full-time, but this requires investment and may require some help.

Puppies will not stay for long. However, despite their small size, they require a lot of attention.

Puppies need companionship, frequent meals and toilet training.

You can raise a puppy at work, but you need to do it right.

For most working pet parents, this means giving some help

How long can I leave a puppy alone?

The new puppy needs a lot of attention and company.

In the first few days, your home is a stranger's home. He may be very distressed to be alone

You need to arrange to spend most of the day with him on vacation or arrange for someone to take care of him during work.

He needs to be taken to the bathroom very frequently (see our family training article) and gradually gets used to spending longer time.

He needs to be taken to his restroom area very frequently and gradually gets used to staying alone longer.

Many outings are needed for him to ensure that he is socialized properly. This is crucial, and it is difficult (if not impossible) to cram it into evenings and weekends.

If you leave him alone for too long, he may feel very depressed.

From 10-12 weeks of age

If you treat him as a crate, you need to arrange for someone to come in and let him leave midway in the morning. Or equivalent to going to work in the afternoon or evening.

If you leave him alone for four hours, you will need a puppy pen to protect him and avoid mischief.

Put the night bed at one end, with the door open, so that he can empty his bladder from where 

From 3-6 months of age

By the time he is six months old, your puppy may last three to four hours without peeing.

And he might be happy to sleep for four hours in an adult-sized crate.

The important thing here is to consider the time of commuting.

People often say "I only work for four hours", but in reality, this dog will live longer than this because of the travel time involved.

If you want to leave the dog for more than four hours, it is indeed better to arrange his condition with a puppy pen.

How to train a puppy in the toilet at work?

If you keep your puppies aground longer than the puppies wait to urinate, you need to keep them in a large area to use the puppy training mat.

We will discuss playpens and doghouses later, but the principle of this potty training is to teach puppies to pee and poop.

Later, you can gradually move the puppy pad outside

However, now, you need to cover the entire area that the puppy can enter in the pad, and then gradually reduce the area over the next few days until the puppy defecates in a small area.

Does it matter if the puppy gets his bed wet?

Does it really matter whether the puppy wets the bed at this age? Will he grow out?

Well, yes, this is important because once the puppy gets wet the bed a few times, he will stop minding.
He will also stop trying to last longer.

This will greatly delay the training process in the house and even cause long-term bedwetting problems.

Of course, this is not what we want

Where to leave a puppy while at work

Many new puppy owners consider putting puppies in crates at work

If you work outside for a few hours, you cannot put the puppy in the box because the entire bed is wet.

Nor can you give your puppy a "house run". He will pee and defecate everywhere, and chew your things.

This means you either need to provide him with a safe space or provide him with a playpen. Let's look at these options

Many people realize this and just leave the puppy in the kitchen, because it is wise that its floor is washable.

Unfortunately, many puppies who have only stayed for a few hours will chew.

This includes the cable on the refrigerator, the kitchen towel left on the edge of the appliance, and the puppy pad that was put down to let him pee.

Therefore, you can see that you need to "prove" the selected room very carefully.

Puppy pens and barriers

To control the area your puppy can enter,

These are divided into parts and can be assembled to fit most rooms. In addition to the crate, you also need one.

Fragile puppies are not strong enough to keep older puppies unsupervised.

The puppy has enough space here to stretch his legs and empty his intestines and bladder from where he sleeps.

This helps to maintain his natural instincts to keep his study room clean.

In the future, your entire home will become his study, so we hope to keep this instinct beautiful and 

How Long They Can Stay in the Crate

As you can see, keep a brand new puppy in the crate for no more than an hour (daytime) without an accident.

If you start to wet the bed later, it is easy to think that this puppy is naughty at 4 to 6 months.

But the truth is that many things affect how long a dog can walk without emptying its bladder. Puppies or dogs with constantly full bladder may be more prone to bladder infections. Or you may give up when you can't stand the effort of waiting.

This does not mean that you cannot train a puppy in a crate at work, we will discuss it later.

Keeping your puppy company when at work

All puppies are different​​. Even puppies from the same litter. Therefore, keeping a puppy while working full-time is different for everyone.

Until you understand their temperament, you will not know their temperament.

However, all Labrador puppies have a strong need for companionship.

As you can see, if you work full-time when the puppy is very young, you will need someone else to be in your place.

At least part of the working day

This not only established good toilet habits but also introduced him to the concept of learning to be alone for a long time.


This is inevitable in an emergency, but it may be unreasonable, and that is to leave any dog ​​indoors on a regular basis throughout the working day.

Depending on the temperament of adult dogs, some adult dogs may adapt to this isolation, but many dogs will feel depressed or bored and fall into mischief.

It has never been a pleasant thing to be denied access to toilet facilities for several hours.

Therefore, if you have to work full time, you do need to arrange for someone to visit your dog.

Take him out to breathe fresh air and exercise at least halfway through the day.
