Granted I do believe most dogs sleep when their owners aren't home but I just can't understand this...maybe if was every once in a while or the peron fell on hard times and this isn't a lifestyle but a temporary thing. I don't know about any medical issues but it doesn't seem right.

That's a long time to be penned up in a small space. Is the dog trust worthy to have more free reign of the house? Maybe have a dog door if it's safe to do so? Not something I'd do, but then again I wouldnt leave my dog alone for 24 hours with only one potty break in between.
He could also look into hiring a dog walker to break up his day further. Yeah it costs money but the dog's sanity is worth something too. It is to me, anyway.
I don't know how anybody can work 5 eights, especially during the day. It's the worst shift ever. I don't know how people get anything done.
