I go to work at 6:30 & get off at 7 at night. 2 days on, then 3 days off etc.
I feed Murphy at 3:30 when we get up, he potties then immedeitly lays down for a nap while I'm getting ready.
He is crated from 6:15 to 11-11:30.
He is 8 months old and does really well with that.
I feed him, he potties and we play for the rest of the lunch hour.
Then when I leave after the hour he usually gets put in his big play pin, which he sleeps in his attached crate anyways. Lazy boy!
But I give him peanut butter on a kong bone before I leave, so he is occupied.
Then my husband gets home at 3:30ish.
He potties immedeitly.
That's our schedule, but he is a very lazy bulldog.
If we aren't around he sleeps.
I would say directly half way through your shift to have someone come and check on them
