I would not leave my dog crated for long periods. Kodi is very happy in his ex-pen, with his bed, litter box, and water bottle. I think having an ex-pen set up for him is small price to pay for his comfort while we are out. I think if you can't leave your dog loose, or if, like Kodi, they are HAPPIER in their pen while you're out, an ex-pen is a much nicer solution for them than a small crate.
