I just got a 10 week old Chi puppy, & she is very smart & adorable.
However, I have school 5x a week from 8-4. During that time I would crate her since she isn't potty trained yet. I did that when my older chihuahua was a puppy, & she did fine. She's perfectly happy & healthy, & loves her crate now..
I was wondering if I could do that with this new chi, if I leave her with food & toys & blankets in her crate, will she be okay? Also, how can I go about house training her in this respect?
Oh, also I did consider an exercise pen but my apt is too small & I was worried that she would learn it was "okay" to go potty inside.
