If Quincy wasn't climbing out of his ex-pen, he'd still be in there when we go out. But now we have had to let him have somewhat free reign. We do close off some rooms so he can't get into them, but he has access to the living room, dining room, kitchen, and bedroom. He has been very good and usually when we come home we find him sleeping on the loveseat. So much for the two comfy crates he has! LOL He prefers sleeping on our bed, the loveseat, or one of our recliners. I suppose it has a lot to do with our scent being on all these things. I still worry when we leave him, but I'm not comfortable with locking him in his crate while we're out. I worry that he'll have to pee/poop and won't be able to get to a pee pad (although he's always held it). I like that he has the option there to be able to use it if he has to. I'm one of those who over analyzes everything LOL. I'm always thinking, what if....
You kill me Dory
. My youngest daughter is an over analyzer too!
Seeing as Ted can,t reach to get up on anything or get out of his pen, I'm using it at least til after Christmas, unless he has a growth spirt!!
Ted still likes our laundry, paper, shoes, leaves, our food.....
On the other hand he doesn't chew on wood or electrical cords! Im a pretty neat house keeper so most of the above is away but Ted does like to try and get things that he can reach. I too have always had a phrase which is "leave it" but ever since teenage hood Ted pretty much ignores all that he has learned. If I have treats in hand he will do all the things I have taught him but come. I think he thinks come probably means "pen" so he runs and I chase him!
Well I have to go, the trainer is coming for an inhome visit today so I have to make sure the house is in order. I bathed Ted last night so he is good, unless he gets the runs or something.....oops over analyzing too
