I have a 5 month old Wheaten Terrier. Since we got him we have been putting him in his cage at night in the laundry room. He used to love it. Even in the middle of the day he would go in just to lie down. Now that he is a little bigger and his coat is thicker he doesn't like going in and we sometimes have to push him in at night. Probably because it is to hot. It is a big cage and we have one of those foam beds at the back with blankets. I read that you are supposed to put puppies in a cage until they are one year old to properly cage train them. There is no way he will be able to be in there for a year. Would it be okay if we took out the cage and left his bed and blankets in the same spot and let him stay in the 20x5ft laundry room overnight or is this a bad idea?
