Question by Annalisa R: Will my new Yorkie puppy be ok left home alone while I am at work for four hours at a time?
I bring home my baby Yorkie in three weeks. While she’s still potty training I plan to keep her in my bathroom with a baby gate up instead of closing the door. Her crate will be on the floor with it’s door open, and I will have piddle pads for her to use in the corner. I will be leaving a radio on for her to try and keep her from feeling too lonely, and toys for her to play with. I work 9-5, but everyday at lunch time I will come home and spend time with her. When I’m home with her I will be using the “Crate Training” method to potty train, but while at work she will use piddle pads, and I will take the piddle pads outside to the same place where I take her to go potty, so that she will understand that’s where she should go. I will not punish her for accidents and I will praise her when she potties outside. She is a good eater and hasn’t had any problems with low sugar. I decided to get her when my brother worked out of our home but now he’s moving out. Any advice would be appreciated.
