How does your puppy react/behave if you leave them at home for longer duration? My WFH is ending this month and then Murphy will have to be at home alone for at least 7-8 hrs. How do i handle this situation. Need advice
All dogs react differently to separation from their guardian. Some turn unusually quiet, while some show destructive behaviours like urinating, excessive barking, howling, chewing on furniture, etc. Some dogs remain unaffected by the separation, however it's recommended to train your doggo for separation in advance so they feel comfortable staying alone.
Kuddle Behaviourists have helped many pet parents in resolution of their Pet's separation anxiety.
You can connect with us to learn more about our training programs that can help Murphy in this situation.

Mine usually howls for a while and then gets calm. We keep the tv on for him, so either he looks at the TV or very rarely plays with his toys. Mostly his sight will be towards the main door. But as such he says fine.
Just to add to my answer, max we've kept him alone is 5hs. But on average its around 3hrs - once or twice a week. not too sure how he'll react to longer wait period and multiple times a week. but yes, please start training your pet at the earliest starting with lower intervals.
