I took 3 days off of work after I pick up the puppy, to interact with her, get her acclimated to the new surroundings and see what her likes and dislikes are. The pen is just a temporary thing until she is fully crate trained and is able to hold her bladder while im gone at work. I am able to come home half way during my work shift to take her out as well and give her some play time. Im not getting a puppy just to leave at home for hours upon hours.. she will be a vital part of my life as I need her for therapy. When im not at work, she will spend every ounce of her time with me and my family.
Trust me, I want nothing but the best for her, I dont want her to choke, I realize the choking hazards, thats why I pick and choose the toys she can have in her pen with her.. yes I have some stuffed animal toys, but those wont be going in with her, they will be a supervised toy.. the bully sticks are about 7 inches long and are twirled
And just to remind everyone, this is a cocker spaniel puppy.. not a GSD or Newfie puppy that comes to you 30lbs already, she is small, her dishes are spill proof, her chew toys are far bigger than her mouth and her crate is large enough for her to fit inside and move around, but not large enough for her to pee and poop in. Thanks for everyones responses on the question at hand about the pen..I bought the $45 metal one.
