I have not had a puppy in 14 years. My 3 dogs were all rescues and potty trained. So 4 weeks ago we got Snooki and I absolutely love working with the crate. The potty training and feeding is perfect in the crate. If I need to vacuum I can lock her up and she just takes a nap. I take Snooki and Big Mac to the office every day and I borrowed and old air-crate from a friend. The door is always open and she just loves to sleep in it.
I am a huge fan of the crate and am sure that we will keep on using it in the future. Snooki seems to love it as well.
