To Crate Or Not To Crate...
(Tyrone, PA, USA)
Hi. We rescued an Aussie a little over a month ago. He’s a great dog and will go in his crate but will scratch at the crate door and cry excessively as we leave. He may only have to be in his crate once or twice a week, sometimes 3, and it’s never more than 4-5 hrs.
It’s making us feel extremely guilty but we don’t quite trust that he will be ok alone in the house. We tried gating him in the kitchen area once, but he jumped the gate.
Had anyone dealt with this issue that can give us tips?
