How long to leave dog without pottying
We are new to the dog thing. Our dog is 1 year old and he can go from 8 at night to 10am sometimes without demanding to be let out. We are going on vacation, and can have my nephew stay with him, but he has to work the majority of days where he would be out of the house for 9 hours. Since most kennels only have 2 potty breaks, do you think this is OK to let him out at 6:45am and not again until 4:30p? I'd like to have someone let him out midday, but this may not be possible. I don't think he'd get more options at a kennel.And, he'd be at home,with someone with him the rest of the time. Is waiting 9 hours twice a day to go potty too long?
