I go back to work in April and have been informed that my shifts have changed. I used to work 6am-12pm or 12pm-6pm but now I will be working 8am-6pm. Before I went on maternity leave I lived 2 mins away from my work but now we have our own house and live 20 mins away from my work. Anyway, we have a dog and I'm not sure what we are going to do with him when I go back to work as I cant just nip home to let him out anymore (which is what I did before) and I dont think its fair to leave him for over 9 hours stuck in the house on his own. We cant afford to put him in kennels or hire a dog walker and there's no-one around us who can pop in and let him outside. What should I do?
