A friend of mine has 2 lovely dogs. However, he works long hours and so has to leave them alone for most of the day. They have in the past chewed up furniture and electrical cables when they have had free roam of his place, so now he shuts them in the kitchen when he is not there. The kitchen is pretty small, and they are medium sized dogs.
He does feed, water, and walk them when he can, and i have been helping out with that when i am able.
I went over there yesterday, and it turns out he had not been home in about 36 hours. Their food and water bowls were empty, and they had pooped and pissed all over the kitchen. The smell was unbelievable!
Anyway, i cleaned up best i could, fed and watered them and took them out for a walk. But i felt so bad having to shut them back in there
He says he loves the dogs, but he really doesnt seem to be taking good care of them.
I feel like i have to do something, but not sure what. Either talk to him, and maybe suggest he asks his parents to look after them, or go straight to the RSPCA?
Ive never owned a dog, so i dont know much about how to care for them, but their current situation doesnt seem healthy
