I have a 6 year old male chocolate lab. I have had him since he was a puppy. For the first two years he was with my husband and I. I got divorced and moved back home. Now for the past two years it has been just him and I. The problem is that I work two jobs. Two days a week I am away from home about 13 hours. I let him out at lunch. Two other days I am away about 11 and I again let him out at lunch. I try to walk him and play with him when able. Is this really fair to him? I don't have a fenced yard so he can't freely run and be crazy. Should I continue this pattern or is this unfair to him?View Thread
