A puppy when you work full-time?

Hello everyone,

Im not a new dog owner as I currently have a female Corgi, but I got her when she was 6 so she was already trained and house broken and everything. Im hoping to get a puppy within the next few months but it will be my first time with a puppy. My main question is, how do you guys do it- with potty training and everything, when you work out of the home. I work 5 days a week so Im not sure how I would work it out with trying to raise a puppy. Any ideas would be great.

Well what I do is this. I puppy proofed the kitchen. I put her crate in there but leave door open and put a good gate in entry way. I used child locks on bottom cabinets. Not ideal but much better than crating 13 hours! Put down puppy pad or newspaper. Will take you longer to house break but it worked well with last 2 dogs. By the time they were 8 or 9 months old they could last before I came home and let them out. Leave a radio on also.
