I recently adopted an adult dog from the Marin Humane Society. She has turned out to be the best little dog. She came with basic manners and is house broken. After only having her for two days, I had to leave her alone for 9 hours while I went to work. When I returned home, she and my house were fine.

One trick I do is to take a Kong bone and stuff it with treats when I leave for long periods of time. This helps distract the dog and keep them entertained for a bit. See my Tips on ‘Products’ for the Kong toy and treats I use.
