How much time alone?

If you were selling a Havanese puppy and both parents of the family worked, what is the maximum time that you would allow the newly placed puppy to be alone?
If you and your spouse work and you still have a well adjusted Havanese, please respond to this thread.

We both work- I am a 9 to 5 type person and my husband is a professor with flexible hours so they are usually alone 5 hours a day during the week except summers and in between terms. It works for our family but I also clarify it with-we have 2 dogs (which I think is a good idea if you work) and I train with them outside the house at least 3 nights a week as I really enjoy this and they do too. I also walk them every single day. The girls have both been trained and are so good I don't have to put them in an expen or a crate. They have full house access except the bathroom as we all know the Havanese issue there that can't seem to be trained out!

Just some prospective but I do completley understand about not selling a puppy who is going to be in a crate all day. I think it is in their nature to be part of a pack. With Jim being home all the time now, when we both go to leave, the girls (especially the maltese) get seperation anxiety and bark at the window for a bit.

A friend of mine just sold a Bernese puppy to someone who said they lived in a condo and didn't have a fenced in yard. This was an issue to her but then she realized how many people have a fenced in yard and never take their dogs for a walk. At least with this person, she know this dog would be exercised regularly.

Just some thoughts,

Thinking of adding a Neezer, check out this thread!
