She is a total love and wants to be with me all the time. I think it's cruel to let her think she can so she needs to learn she can be ok on her own. My first dog was perfectly fine and it was his home.
I get why people think it is cruel but I don't. I feel it is keeping her safe - from my other dog (they wrestle a lot, haha) and from getting at anything.
I know too many people who came home to destroyed homes when they did not crate. That I cannot handle.
She is fine at night to go in her little crate but if I go out of her sight in the daytime at all, she is on my heels so the crate training is difficult!
