I'm considering getting a Doberman as a pet, but I work a full-time job and I'm worried about leaving the dog alone for long periods of time. I typically work 7-8 hours a day and I'm wondering if a Doberman would be okay with being alone for that amount of time.
I really love the breed and I think they're beautiful, but I don't want to adopt a dog that won't be happy being by itself for most of the day. I also don't want to come home to a destroyed house or a dog that's anxious or unhappy.
I'm hoping some Doberman owners or experts can provide some insight into whether or not this is a feasible situation for a Doberman. And if it's not, what other breeds would be better suited to being left alone for longer periods of time?
Thank you in advance!
