I was wondering what your opinions on dog crates were..
I've personally always seen them as being cruel, to leave a dog in a crate whilst you go to work etc, but I was at the vet today (getting food and what not) and she was asking how Chloes separation issues were going (not well but we'll get there!), when she mentioned perhaps i should look into getting her a crate..
I must admit I dont know a lot of them, so my initial "cruel" thought is completely that, an initial thought with no research or actual knowledge, apart from seeing them around.. She (the vet) said she uses one for her Kelpie who has similar issues and it's calmed them down a lot..
So are you for or against them? IF so why/why not
Also for those who are FOR them, and have one;
where do you keep it?
How long does your dog spend in it?
Im not yet convinced and at the moment, Im hoping to slowly get Chloe's anxiety calmed without one, but Uni starts up again in March and I am going to have to have some sort of back up plan for the 2 days im not at home and she can't come..
