My puppy is completely tearing up my furniture etc. when loose in the house with no one home. People keep telling me I should crate her when I am not home but there is no way I can do it. It feels so wrong. Anyway, I have a back sun room in my house I don't use so I bought a dog gate to make it a "puppy room" for her. Now, here I am STILL feeling guilty for putting her in there. How do you feel about putting dogs in gated areas? People tell me I am being silly as the room is a decent size (attached is a pic so you can see what I am talking about)...its just when she is in there and whines to get out it breaks my heart. HELP!
PS. Ignore her glowing eyes in the pic, I suck at taking pics. Unless thats her demonic side coming out to get back at me for putting her in there! lol.
