    I feel the same way. When we are away from home we crate both of our dogs. Both my wife and myself work and I'm 46 miles from home when I am at work. My wife let's them both out at lunch unless she is out of town and then my son comes over and let's them out. So far we have managed to make sure they get out at least once a day while we are at work but I feel awful thinking of them in there. But like others have said they sleep most of the time while in there anyway. Even on days off when they are free to roam they still sleep about as much as if they were in their crates while we are at work.

    I would like to piggyback this thread with a question myself. As of now I haven't left anything in the crate with Ace when we are away. Does anyone here leave an antler in the crate with there dogs and/or what's your thoughts on this?

    I leave his favorite rope if I HAVE to crate him or his favorite chew bone and I leave the TV on Animal Planet.

    The only thing I've left is the kong ... and I get a bag of frozen cali mix vegs .. carrots, broccoli and cauliflower ... and I stuff as much as I can in to the kong. And I really mean stuff that thing full!!! Then I leave that in the crate with them. I know for a fact they can't destroy the kong because they never have and the frozen veggies in the middle will take ages to thaw so they will be very amused!!
