Mine are crated while I'm not home, I trust Jazzy but not Delgado.
I don't feel guilty on a work day, they're in the crate a max of 8 hours and they're let out midday. Once I'm home I spend it mostly with them. They get exercise, play, and attention and all their other needs are met so they're happy dogs
On a weekend or a day off I do feel guilty if they have to be crated for more then a hour if I'm out but they're ok with it. They like their crates and like sleeping
