My roommate is leaving me his dog for a week while he goes on vacation. The dog's grown up with me, she's sweet, but I'm admittedly not that great at this.

If she gets 3 walks and I feed/water her over that timespan on a regular schedule, she'll be okay, right? She's normally very sappy and likes a lot of attention and cuddles, which I'm not the best at. She also sleeps in his bed normally, but won't be able to sleep in mine, so I'm gonna kind of restrict her to her dog bed in the kitchen.

I guess what I'm asking is, how do I best not fuck this up while spending the least amount of time with her possible? I figured sitting at home with a nice wide open backyard and someone to feed her would be a lot better than him leaving her in a kennel for a week.

It'll be better for the dog, but she'll still cry and whine at night. Nothing you can do about it.

That all sounds fine, but ask about her normal care. What time is she walked and fed normally?

Just follow that, it's fine.

As for sleeping your solution is sbsurrly fine. She won't like it, but she's a dog. She'll be ok in the morning.

She's fed and walked at times that are totally incongruent to my life, but luckily when she's fed she doesn't really eat all of it immediately, so as long as I fill up a bowl for her, she'll get around to it eventually.

She eats at like 1 PM and midnight (roommate works swing shift). Similarly, she's walked between 12-4 PM, and 1-3 AM. At least once a day, but twice a day 3-4 times a week, unless she gets to go to the park or something and have a big workout.

What dog breed?

She's mostly pitbull. She's an adoption, so there's no 100% certainty what she is.

you'll probably be fine, but what you should worry about is the possibility of her having seperation anxiety and the negative behaviors that go along with it

how does she do when he's gone, maybe for a slightly longer period of time than normal?

She does alright, I mean, over the years she's torn up a couple of things, but never anything major. She still struggles for attention when he's at work, but it could be worse. Normally his dad watches her when he's gone.
