    Dogs are pack animals, putting them on their own all the time is very sad and lonely for them, so yes, I think no interaction with their humans is cruel.

    Yeah I guess in the grand scheme of things it's not the end of the world. I just feel bad for him. We can't take him. We have a 10 month old puppy and are picking up a 6 year old rehome tomorrow. A few days wouldn't bother me but I think 2 weeks is excessive. If we didn't do it the other neighbour would.

    I understand where you are coming from, a few days I can understand, but a few weeks is stretching it a little. Maybe you can take him for some walks, as well as feeding him, or give him a little more attention whilst they are away, or ask the other neighbour if they can have him every few days at their house, and they can give the dog some attention ?

    2 weeks is too long to leave a dog by themselves, even if they're getting fed daily.
    Our dog gets stressed out at the kennels and can be a bit destructive so we don't like to leave him at friends houses. We are going away for 2 weeks and will be getting house sitters to come and stay and look after him. We have plenty of people that are willing to walk him daily but I still think it's too lonely for him to be alone every night.
