Need your opinions on whether this would be ok for the dog or not.
If I take him with me out of town to work this will be his schedule:
At work I have a converted horse trailer that is my "office" and I work my 12 hours in it alone. We also have a living trailer that is shared.
I would work 6pm to 6am and he would be in my office/trailer with me probably sleeping since it's his night. When I get off each morning we would go hunting until about noon so 5 hours or so of running. Then while I sleep, he would be in his insulated crate outside until I go to work again at 6pm. He can't be in the shared house.
What you think? Too much crate time during the day?
If you have a truck you might want to invest in a fiberglass shell to keep the weather off the crate while pup is sleeping. I am surprised not many people in texas have shells on trucks if your an outdoorsman.
