I have a 2 year old Pomeranian, and i work from 9 to 5...i live in an apartment and i was wondering where should i keep him during the day..He is trained somewhat but i dont know if i should leave him out. Any suggestions?
maybe you could try to leave him out at extended periods. Like on one weekend leave him out for 30 minutes and just work your way up from there. Oscar stays out all the time. I just couldn't imagine confining him to a small space for any amount of time.
I would put the crate in the bathroom and put the baby gate up, you can try putting wee wee pads down but with mine, it really messed up there potty training. One thing to remember though. NEVER get mad at him for any messes in there because of the length of time he was in there.
My dogs are crated when I leave them but since I am a stay at home mom, I am hardly ever gone, I usually take them with me when I do go somewhere. I have left them for 8 hours in their crate before and they did fine. It is just a matter of making sure they get alot of exercise before and after.
