A dog requires love and affection to thrive and be healthy.
Leaving your dog for long periods of time can result in poor and destructive behavior.
When they are left for several hours, it's like an eternity to them, and they need to be around their owner and people for stimulation.
Every healthy dog requires exercise everyday.
