Kennel all day question
We just adopted a two year old female who is used to spending all day in her large wire kennel when they were working. We don't like to use kennels but she wants to sleep in it at night. Well, today was the first day I worked with her here and I decided to leave her out since our doxie doesn't stay in one. When I got home the house was in relatively good shape except that she got a hold of my two favorite Texas Rangers ball caps and a couple stuffed animals. It looks like she may have ingested at least one stuffed small paw and maybe a small piece of plastic from the cap. She did puke when I took her out and has beefine since. I don't want to cage her during the day but should I do it and gradually wean her out of it? Other than those few items, she seems do have done well. Our last GSD was crated only as a pup for house breaking and did very well after that.
