In Reply to: leaving a very young puppy home alone
: We brought home our 6 week old JRT a week ago, and while we have been on vacation all this week we both have to return to work in a few days. The puppy will have to be left alone for 4 to 8 hours 5 days a week. We have tried confinement to a room as well as a crate, but the puppy gets very distressed after only a few minutes. I have read that the puppy is too young to be crated all day anyway, What is the best way to deal with the puppy while we are gone?
