Jude will be 3 months on the 17th. I have a ex pen set up in my living room which I put him in when I need to be where I can't watch him, when I leave the house, or, on some days, when he's just "tired" and I think he needs a nap (not to mention my older dog needs a time out from him). This time will run anywhere from 10 minutes to a several hours (I play golf and bridge). I can tell you it doesn't stress him when I'm gone to play golf, or have to go into Tucson for things, because when I get ready to leave the house he lies in his bed and looks at me as I go out the door, and sometimes he's not even aware that I'm back until I open the door. Remember, though, my older dog, Dani, is always here with him - so he can hear that heartbeat. He's so smart. . .also, he has lots of playtime with me and/or Dani - and I try to take them for a walk most days.
