I just got a 9 week old puppy. It has been over 12 years since we have had a pup. In crate training she does great at night. I took first week off to work with her. She now will need to be carted a few days a week while we work. Is it better to put crate in larger area and allow her to go in and out of the crate or should we just section off crate and leave her in? Note: my wifes work day varies so it could be 6 hours she is in there. I have been reading about sectioning off a crate because dogs do not like to soil their sleeping area. I cannot remember what we did with our first two boxers.
