Our black lab, Lily, will be able to come home at the end of September, when She's 8 weeks old. We have a fairly large laundry room that is empty right now, and plan on gating her in there while we work, and bedtime..... We have the first few days home with her, but then she will have to be alone for 6 ish hours a day sometimes. The thought of that breaks my heart. Any tips on how I should make this easier for her? I read about giving her treats in her room, and building up time in there. Anything else?
