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.

I'm kind of in the same boat here. We just adopted a puppy from our humane society and will be picking her up on Saturday. Problem is I work full time, 13 hour shifts three times a week. Yeah I do get 4 days off but during that three days that I work it will be difficult. My job is about a 50 minute drive away from home, so coming home is not an option:( I will be crating her and maybe I will be able to take her with me to work as that will probably be my only option.
