Advise on Gryff staying home alone
We have a nice sized sunroom where we keep Gryff's crate. Whenever we leave the house for an extended period, we close him in that room. He treats the entire room like his crate - he has never had an accident in that room even when we are away for 4 hours.
The problem is that room isn't really heated. It gets cold in there in the winter. It is completely closed in and has a heating vent, it's just not well insulated. Would you feel comfortable putting your dog in there for a few hours at a time in the winter (we live in New York)? I am trying to think of some solutions because it really is a great room to make sure he doesn't chew on anything or get into trouble and he likes being in there. It has lots of windows and he has plenty of room.
