Are you saying that Buchiki stays in a crate for like an 8 hour work day? That seems like a very long time for a 6 month old pup to go without "going". I never leave Oreo (5 months old) more than 3, maybe 4 hours at the most. From what I had read, I expected him to get to the point that he might be able to make it 5-6 hours as an adult. At about 14 weeks, I started leaving him in a 3x3 playpen when I had to leave the house, and just used the crate at night. He hasn't had an accident in his pen, but again, I only leave him about 3 hours at a time. Oreo won't use a pee pad, just chews it, and we have tried the Pet Loo, and he just lays on it, so I just make sure someone will be able to get home to let him out. Good luck finding a solution that works for both of you!
