What is your kennel like?? We have a dog run in the yard which is a pretty good size but its very hot here in Texas I didn't want to leave him in there..
As for our house I can't work any other room to make it a den for him. My living room the only room that will give him access to go to the potty spot
Put that couch up against the wall is also my first option pop up in my mind lol so yes you are helpful
Yeah I would definitely have someone come over. I usually do that on the day we work late. But that particular day all our friends were at the game with us so I thought I would take a shot. Needless to say that wasn't a wise decision lol
