: My husband and I want to get a JRT. We both work during the day. We are generally gone from 7:30am to 5:30pm. We were planning on leaving the puppy in the kitchen with food and water as opposed to in a crate all day. Is this cruel to leave the dog alone all day? Would it be better to build a large pen in the back yard?

Most of the problems I see on this board are from people that work and don't have the time or the commitment to put into having this type of dog. Put in Housebreaking in the search engine and see how many related posts there are? If you were buying from me I would tell you to wait untill you are in a situation that some one can be with the puppy during the day. Please remember that dogs are for a life time, and they are a huge commitment and one that shouldn't be rushed into.
