Megan, I think you do need to crate her when you leave the house for her own safety. There is nothing wrong with that, so long as you aren't gone all day. If you need to leave her home all day on occasion, make sure she is still confined to a place where she can get some movement and eliminate if necessary, but remain safe from her own antics. Right now, she doesn't realize it, but she's become her own worst enemy. As her guardian, she needs you to restrict her ability to find harm.
