    Oh don't feel bad. It's temporary like you said and its to help him get trained. A lot of members here crate their bullies when they're away. And you know what? They sleep for the most part of it! Those who have cameras set up will verify that.

    Mayhem loves his kennel........he even goes in there on his own sometimes when he wants a nap. He knows that it is his space During the day, when we are home, he will sleep under things as well (the bar stools, dinette chairs, etc.)....he likes being in an enclosed space.

    Don't feel bad, it's the safest place for him. We crate all of ours when we are gone except Buddy, he doesn't get into anything and is a very good boy.

    Berry always hops in her crate when she is super tired. As others have stated its her place and having grown up with that as hers she is happy there. Dont stress if your at work your bully is just waiting for you to get home to hang out with you.

    I know the awful feeling. We have Tubby confined to the kitchen only which is right by the front door so I get to see those big sad eyes look at me when I leave. Like everyone else said its for his own good but you can't help that it tugs at your heart strings. From one guilt stricten mom to the next I feel your pain

    he will do great --- they pretty much sleep the whole time. However, i can relate, it broke my heart the first time we did it too

    Your kidding right? Any time I lecture either or both of mine, they scramble to get to their crate and in it.... Thinking my stern voice, or disapproval of what they did can't effect them through the bars of their crate. Hahaha, half the day they are wrestling to both get in the same crate to sleep, because one is bigger than the other, and they prefer the smaller crate, more security. Now when I leave for work, it's a different story, neither know what a crate is, or where they left it, but if I'm home and their napping, or getting lectured, they both want in a 36" crate preferably over the 42"!! Go Figure.... It's all frame of mind.... and seeing them in their obviously for both reasons, I don't feel one bit guilty. I feel relieved knowing their both safe and sound, not in trouble, and can't get into harms way. Plenty of water, and kewl air, and I do leave the TV on for them, but since they ate the remote, their channel changing preferences have been temporarily suspended.... On a lighter note, their new toothbrush heads have arrived.

    I know your feeling. We put Harlea in her crate on Sunday so we could run a few errands and were only gone maybe 90 minutes at the most. My wife was a wreck the whole time with worry but when we got home and walked to our room where the crate is she was sound asleep snuggled up with a few of her toys and woke up when we called her name. We have been putting her in her crate for short periods of time during the day to get her used to and waiting until she has settled down for a bit before opening the door for her to come out. To me she has a penthouse suite at the Waldorf with her bed, toys, water bottle within easy reach and the tv with animal planet on seems to help her calm down a bit quicker. She also eats her meals in her crate so we don't have to worry about my other dog trying to steal her meals.

    Guinevere will begrudgingly get in her crate when I leave for work. She really doesn't mind, but she always acts betrayed (she won't let me touch her as she's getting in). She only has to get in it a few days a week, and only for a few hours, I think she would prefer to just be with us. I saw how much she really likes her crate when we went to San Diego and set it up at the hotel. She was ecstatic to see her crate in a strange place and hopped right in! I feel better knowing she is safe and sound when I'm not home! @Casper, I do hope you video the next time you brush their teeth (or feed them the toothbrush head!).
