My puppy is about 9 months old now. and about 2 months ago she had to start staying home alone because i got a job.
We never crate trained her because we got her when she was 4 months old and there was never a need. Besides I don't have the heart to lock her in a cage for 9 or 10 hours while we are at work.
I live in an apartment and I have a sliding doorway that separates our bedroom and bathroom from the rest of the house. So we just shut that door so she has the bedroom and bathroom while we are gone.
Bathroom mats have to be taken out or they'd be shredded.
She tears apart the toilet paper roll even when its on the counter.
She destroyed her bed.
Our comforter, our top sheet, then finally our fitted sheet and mattress pad.
Is it a puppy thing or just boredom. But aside from waking up an hour earlier to take her for a 2 mile walk...
Is there anything I can do for her?... or should i say my stuff??
