I say no. I don’t think you have extra time much less for a dog. You will end up with a urine covered dog that is stressed and miserable.
Maybe you could Pet sit on your days off.

My Male was devastated whenever I went away. Moping and not eating. We decided to make it a holiday when I went away and Max got extra walks,longer play time, special chewie
and special toys that were only brought out when I was gone. No saying "Oh poor baby" "its okay" or anything sad. Only happy and happy voices and lots of love. It worked!!

Oil can cause Pancreatitis so be VERY careful. I bathed my Basenjis maybe once a year.

I just went through this with my boy and I call it Dogheimers. If you are okay with most of the behaviour then bu a bunch of Pee Pads and spread them all over. There is no magic pill or potion for this. Love her and enjoy her as long as you can.
You may have to make a VERY tough decision soon.

Could be stress Dandruff or maybe your home is too dry. Try a good brush and then use some Moisturizing spray. If that does not work maybe it is an allergy.

When Chakka had her Anal glands removed there was a large wound with stitches at her butt.
We had to wash it 3 times a day.
I stuck her in the kitchen sink and ran warm water over her anus. With a soft cloth I wet and patted it to get all the poop and crusty blood off. She was fed treats as she stood there.
Thick baby wipes work well too...unscented

Our male did the same thing when we moved to a house. I picked up some if his poop from a walk and out it in our yard. Three poop piles later he got the idea.

Could be indigestion and tummy is trying to get rid if something.
Dies he have access to grass?
Is there coughing?
If so it could be kennel cough.

That will tell you the breeds she is

Mine used to super clean his feet and bite his toe nails.
I think as long as he isn’t harming himself- let him do it

I have a reading lamp that mine lays under. We have a sectional and the lamp is in a corner so he finds that spot perfect.
I live in the PNW and he finds sun anywhere
