Well I was going to leave her out, but right after I roll out the door and get in the van she starts jumping on the door which is 80% window and ruined the blinds. I just went back in and played with her for a few minutes and then put her in her crate. I made sure she did not think anything was wrong so there would be no way she thought she was being crated for a reason.
So when I get home a little over 8 hours later she is fine, just a little hyper for a few minutes. I am giving her lots of attention and play time before I go to bed, where she will sleep on the floor or in my bed.
Well to my point, what do you all think aout a 4 month old puppy in a crate for 8 hours. I know its an hour for every month of the puppys age. But my shift changed and there is no more coming home for lunch, its either crate, bathroom, bedroom, or run free. I have nice furniture and electronics so running free is scary. I tried to babygate her into the hall, bath, bed but she climbed it or jumped it.
Please reply- Sorry so long, but I need help so I was giving all the facts
