New dog! Do we crate train?
We just adopted a dog from a rescue last night. She's very well behaved we are told...and it seems to be true. I'm still debating keeping her in a crate when we are gone. I am a stay at home mom, so it really wouldn't be that often or that long. I think even a good dog will go and get in the trash, or maybe have an accident... and then if we visit the inlaws the inlaws will feel safer having the dog crated if we go out for dinner. Or just for the drive there so the dog isn't jumping all over the car.
But then I think....if the dog is really well behaved, the trash isn't a big deal, just empty it before we leave the house ( and it's actually in a cabinet, so chances are slim the dog would get in it) I don't know....What would you do? It is a beagle, rat terrier mix.
Thanks for your thoughts!!
