I HATE leaving Beauford in a crate all day while we're at work, but after multiple attempts at free roaming during the day, Beauf just can't do it. It's not every time, but 9 times out of 10, Beauf pees if left out during work hours. I just can't have that. We only use the crate while we're at work, because he's able to hold it while we run errands and such, but he just can't make it 10+ hours.
We started using a baby gate this week instead of a crate and have kept him contained in the mud room while we're at work. So far, so good! I feel SO much better about this.
One of the rare moments, he wanted to cuddle. I love this boy.
