Lakota just turned 2 in January, she is still confinded in the "puppy proofed" kitchen when I go to work. I can leave her free for short periods of time, but we make sure there is absolutely nothing for her to steal. She's been free at night since probably 6 months but she still likes to steal and chew anything left out.
I make sure I get the dogs out every day before work. Are you doing anything before you go to work?
