      Thats a really good question Kelly, and often that used to give me grief with my own dog!

      Dogs love being social, hence they make such enjoyable and loyal pets. Most dogs however are happy enough to be on their own for periods of time, for example while you’re at school or work, as long as they are properly cared for – they have plenty of food and water, they have someplace to do their waste and ideally they are outside with plenty of fresh air – it all depends on the dog really!
