We recently adopted (2 weeks ago) a 4 month old mix. Unfortunately, we have no choice but to crate her during the day. We have been trying to get her used to being in there for short periods of time. I had to leave for about 1 1/2 hours today so I put her in there with a water dish. Once again, I come home to find her wet and with urine in her water dish. We make sure she pees before we leave but it doesn't seem to help. I'm getting a bit perturbed with having to give her a bath almost every day. It's probably because she is bored, but I don't want to have her chew on anything in there and then choke on it or something. We leave the TV on for some background noise. There is no blanket in the crate as our last dog ate two and had to have stomach surgery twice. I don't think it would be good to leave her in there without water, would it? BTW, she is doing really good on her house training with no oopsies in three days. I need some help here folks. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
