I just had Stella spayed today and I had some questions about the cone. She has been with my supervision with not licking or chewing (she definitely has tried). But I'm worried about at night when I cannot watch her. This may seem dumb but can I put the cone on while she is in her kennel? I'm just not sure its safe. What are some things any of you have tried?

Yes put the cone on when she is in her crate or when you can't watch her.

If you are worried, why don't you let her sleep in your bedroom with you?

I have had a lot of foster dogs come to my house after a spay/neuter and thus arrive with the cone. I have crated them without issue. But, I do not crate them at night just because I have never had a problem - even with a new foster dog - of having them come in the bedroom to sleep.

It is uncanny, they seem to settle right in, on the floor or on the dog bed, and sleep through the night without issue. Maybe my dog sets a good example, but I think there is something else that is instinctual going on that may better explain my experiences.
