Hi all, I did a search on Pet Yards and didn't find much. We are currently crate training our 8 week old lab/mix. We have the crate in a gated off laundry room, so when he is not in the crate, he has a contained area........ Problem is he can't see us so he cries, cries, cries and when we let him out someone has to follow him constantly (because he can piddle every five minutes, even if he has just been out). We have a very open floor plan so gating off the kitchen area is not possible. Pet Yards?? Anyone use them and how have they worked for you? My concern is that we spend the money on one, and get it home and even though he would be in the kitchen with us, he would be contained and unhappy about it anyway! Any thoughts? Thanks so much !
