I really need to start using our elliptical again. It's been over a month. I used to work out after work in the evenings. Since we got Yogi it's been put on hold...sacrifice I had to make for our sweet puppy. However, I really need to get back to it. I've been working out on the weekends with him in his crate taking a nap, but during the week my husband is home with him during the day since he works night. My husband sleeps during the day, wakes up 3 times or so to take him out to potty and play with him for a while and then when I get home at 5:30 he has playtime with me for 4 hours or so until we go to bed.

I tried working out, but he keeps coming near it and I have to cut my workout short. How can I work out again and not have him get near it when I'm on it?! I don't want to put him back in his crate because he's been in there most of the day. Any suggestions?!

It won't hurt him to be in there the 20-30 minutes you're working out and it will prevent him from getting hurt. Give him something yummy to chew on while he's in there so he doesn't think it's punishment.

What about a wall tether? That way he can be in the room with you but not in a crate - you can leave him something fun to do like chew a bully stick. Although like cshell said there is nothing wrong with crating him while you work out.
