So as some of you may remember, Pippi is an escapist and as a result is confined to inside the house unless she has supervision.
Although a few times a day (first thing in morning, when we get home from work and last thing before bed) she is put outside for 15-20 minutes without any supervision.
Now, when we go to work she is put in their "bedroom". Its a space roughly 1.2metres by say 1.6metres. In it goes her bed, water bowl, a bunch of toys and some newpaper just in case (she never uses this) and her kong with bikkies and peanut butter.
She spends the day in there, and then when my OH gets home, usually around 4 he will let her out. Though sometimes she isnt let out until I get home round 5.30.
She then spends the evening round the house (as well as Barney) and then at bedtime, goes back into that room to sleep for the night (with Barney this time).
Sometimes for a change of scenery she is put in the front entrance which is much larger. From what I can see, she eats her kong but doesnt play with any of her toys, until we get home.
This has been going on for maybe 5 or 6 weeks (????longer) and will continue for the next couple of months after which I will get her a run for outside (it look slike we may be moving to Brisbane so I want to wait until then).
This is a really stupi question but my OH was joking the other day and he said "I reckon its going to make her crazy".
I know lots of dogs spend the work hours in crates, and then also the night in them. But I guess I just want to make sure she wont go crazy LOL
