Hey guys, I have an 11 week old pup who is left home alone on Monday and Tuesdays. I stopped in to clean his exercise pen and give him his afternoon meal. While I did that, he was in our fenced in back yard. It left me with a question 🤔 prior to returning to work. At what age can I start leaving my doberman in the backyard to roam and play while away for 1-4 hours at a time? It has to be better than the small exercise pen that we have for him. Ive already locked the gate from the inside. Its a 7 foot fence so I know nothing will get in or out. I believe my pup has grown to a size that poses no threat from an aerial attack. Although hes 100% going to be an inside dog and sleep inside, I want to get him a dog house for the back yard if he likes it back there from time to time. Is this a bad idea? And when can I start? Any tips?
